How to choose the right Fitness / Sports room

Not all rooms are equal! Just because there's a gym near you doesn't mean it's the best option. Becoming a member of a gym that is in line with your objectives is extremely important to optimize your efforts. We have grouped here the main criteria to remember to make the right choice of where you are going to burn your calories.

  • Identify your goals

Before you walk into any fitness gym or studio, ask yourself what your goals are? If you want to do mainly cardio and you don't like group classes, it's not worth paying a subscription to a gym that offers a weight training park with the latest fashionable machines as well as group lessons at all hours.

  • Optimize location

Location, location, location. It’s a bit like real estate! The location of your gym is extremely important in maintaining your motivation. If you have to travel more than 30 minutes to reach the club, there is a good chance that you will miss more sessions than expected. The ideal commute time is within 5 to 15 minutes of your work or home.

  • Try before you buy

Most gyms offer trial sessions and we recommend you take advantage of them. This will allow you to test the machines, the group lessons, and the general atmosphere of the room to see if it suits you.

  • Take inventory

The first thing to do when you enter a fitness room is to take a look at the equipment and the class schedule. You don't need to have the latest fashionable equipment, but it's important to find a space with free weights, guided machines, space to relax and cardio machines. As for group lessons, check that the lessons offered and their time slots suit you before registering.

  • The atmosphere

When you enter the gym are you motivated and ready to sweat or do you want to lie down next to the coffee machine? Some Fitness clubs lack positive energy and it is important that this does not affect your motivation. Too quiet or on the contrary too noisy with a lot of people, it is important to find a happy medium that suits you.

  • Read the rules

Whether in terms of opening hours or cancellation fees, be vigilant so as not to find yourself trapped with a subscription to a room that you no longer like after 2 months.

  • The cleanliness

There is nothing more unpleasant than working out in a poorly maintained gym. Check the condition of the locker rooms and machines, do members use towels when they train and clean up when they finish?

  • Air quality

We don't necessarily think about it but it is important that the space is ventilated and breathable. When the room fills up it can quickly become hot and humid, which is particularly unpleasant.

Take the time you need before registering and test the rooms that interest you before signing. It's better to leave 2 weeks later than to be committed to a bad gym!

The advice of our Stimium Coach:

“Tell yourself that if a gym is not expensive, then it’s not for nothing! Whether for reasons of conviviality, security or motivation; favor clubs in which you can have access to a local service (presence of coach with or without an appointment).
