How to Make the Most of Your Local Gym Membership


While signing up for a local gym membership can do wonders for your fitness and wellbeing, it’s also a significant commitment. Here, we’ve put together a list of tips to make sure you’re getting the most out of your investment.

 

SET CLEAR & ACHIEVABLE GOALS

When you first sign up for a local gym membership, use this time as a chance to set fitness goals. The best way to make sure these goals stick is to make them as clear and achievable as possible. So, instead of something vague like ‘lose weight’ or something unrealistic like ‘lose 10kg in four weeks’, aim for something like ‘complete three 45-minute gym session per week’. Setting actionable goals will keep you accountable for maintaining progress and making the most of your gym membership.


SCHEDULE GYM SESSIONS

If you’re struggling to find time to make it to the gym as often as you’d like, we always recommend scheduling gym sessions like appointments. Better yet, try group training classes, with classes running throughout the morning and into the evening. Write down the times your gym session or class will begin and end in your diary as you would with a professional commitment and make a habit of ticking it off once it’s done.


Most people think it’s much easier to find time in their day for fitness when they write it down next to all of their other commitments. And nothing beats the satisfaction of seeing a series of consecutive ticks next to the gym sessions you’ve completed.


GET HELP FROM PERSONAL TRAINERS

One thing we hate to see in new members is a tendency to head straight to the treadmill and do nothing else. One of the significant benefits of having a gym membership is being able to access a wide range of gym equipment and incorporate variety into your fitness routine.


The most common thing we hear is that people simply don’t know what to do at the gym, and they are too scared to ask because they don’t want to “look stupid.” Trust us; the professionals have heard it all before and are there to help. Planet Fitness offers a FREE 30-minute consultation with a Personal Trainer to all new members who are unsure how to use specific gym equipment and can give you advice on what to use based on your fitness goals.


MAKE GYM BUDDIES

If you notice someone is going to the gym on similar days and times as you, why not say hi! There’s nothing better than having a few familiar faces to keep you motivated or give you a hand on the weights rack. Planet Fitness has created a friendly and community-based environment where members can support each other on their fitness journey. You can also bring a friend for free every time you work-out, on the Platinum membership. Motivation loves company!
