Here at My Fitness Kitchn, our creators of weight loss fresh meals delivered in Sydney know that more people join a new gym in January, than any other month throughout the year, however not all of them stick around. To ensure you are still showing up for training by the end of the year, it’s important to find a gym that truly suits you and your goals, whether you wish to bulk up, improve your cardio fitness or simply maintain your overall health and wellbeing.

Here our creators of bodybuilding meals in Sydney share a few tips to help you find your perfect gym:


Find a gym close to home or work

Find a gym close to your home or work if possible. Despite your best intentions, after a few sessions, you are less likely to want to drive more than 15 minutes to workout. Use Google Maps or another online tool to plot all gyms within a five-mile radius.


Check out your local gyms at your usual work out time

Saturday afternoon may be the ideal hour to check out a gym, but is it really when you’re likely to workout? Visit the gym at a time when you’re likely to go. Check out how busy the gym is at that time. This is the best time to see if the particular culture at that gym is the perfect fit for you.


Ensure the equipment is clean and maintained

Let’s face it, gyms can be germ factories as well as being hazardous, if equipment is not maintained. It’s not always about finding the gym with the latest, hi-tech machines, it’s more about ensuring all the equipment is in excellent working order, this includes machines as well as free weights and various work out equipment. The gym/equipment should be clean and airconditioned to provide the optimal workout environment.


Book a meeting with the manager

Sit down with one of the gym managers and discuss what your requirements are. If you are looking to take part in classes, be sure to look over the timetable to ensure your preferred classes will fit easily into your own schedule. Ask also for a free pass, to try before you buy so that you don’t get locked into a contract you don’t want.

Look beyond the best deal

When you are weighing the costs of various gyms, you may want to keep in mind that a bargain price may not offer what you need. Also, if you pay a little more, you may be more likely to guilt yourself into going to the gym.
