Are you benefitting from your gym membership? May be you have shed a few pounds, improved your physique and in general feel better on the health front. But do all these changes offset the inconveniences or high gym fees you have to pay up every month? Especially if you can attain the same benefits through workouts performed training with kettlebells at home or included in the local park.
Because the idea of joining a gym has become so popular, people of all ages and types apply for membership. Gyms of course never pull down a ‘house full’ sign. They take on as many members as possible to maximise their profits. Some run functional workouts, but most don’t.
This can result in over-crowding in every session. It is OK from the management’s point of view, but definitely not conducive for the members. So do not get taken in when you are checking out any gym.
To entice people to sign up, gym managements are now going all out on the decor front with plush and fancy receptions – more in line with good restaurants and hotels.
What lies inside is another story – probably overcrowding, bulky machinery and other drawbacks all of which could put off potential clients. Another major problem is that once you join and you find the setup not to your liking, cancelling membership is not easy.
With kettlebells becoming so popular is seems crazy that some people are still wasting their time with a gym membership.
