Every year, our local gym offers big discounts for new members who sign up in January, however the cost savings are incredible, and a lot of people make New Year’s resolutions to lose weight & get in shape.
They are eager to invest in a gym membership. They seem to recognize that signing up is enough to ensure the accomplishment of their goals. Then they show up at the gym & discover that exercise takes a lot of time, energy & effort, but for the first few weeks of the year, the gym is consistently crowded, but despite an inventory of a dozen treadmills, I frequently need to wait for a single to be available. The new memberships aren’t consistently good about wiping down the machines when they are done. They don’t put the kettlebells, dumbbells, jump ropes or resistance bands away. They leave yoga mats all over the locale & don’t suppose how to properly utilize the equipment. The group fitness classes fill up quickly, it’s strenuous to find an empty locker, & there’s constantly litter & wet towels on the floor of the locker room. These new members are aggravating. However, less than ten percent of them continue showing up at the gym beyond a single or 2 weeks, however some only last a week, but while I realize that the gym needs a steady influx of income, I am truly relieved when things get back to normal. I appreciate sharing the gym with people who are particularly dedicated to their health & fitness. I spend a single to 2 thirds at the gym five mornings per week. I am harsh about our workout regimen.
