1. Pro Help

Even if you donโ€™t hire your own personal trainer, if you join a gym, youโ€™ll instantly have access to all kinds of pro tips and help. Thereโ€™s the staff, the instructors, and even your fellow gym-goers, all eager to help you do it, and do it right.

2. Best Equipment

Letโ€™s face it: unless you have an unlimited budget, you wonโ€™t be able to afford the fabulous workout machine and equipment they have at the gym. If you join a gym, your puny membership fee (sometimes as little as ten dollars a month) will give you access to top-of-the-line equipment in a way you can afford it.

3. Access to Classes

Most reputable gyms also offer classes, some for an extra fee, some included in your membership. Itโ€™s a great way to try something new, from Zumba to spinning to yoga.

4. Workout Place and Time!

Iโ€™ve found that even if I mean to set time aside at home, I get distracted. Thereโ€™s laundry and dishes to do, TV to watchโ€ฆ and my workout never happens. But if I join a gym, Iโ€™m much more inclined to get dressed and go. It really does help to have a time and place to work out, away from home!

5. Encouragement

Aside from the knowledge base joining a gym will provide, your fellow gym members will give you two other helpful services: encouragement and/or guilt. Disappear for a few days and see what grief your workout buddies will give you when you come backโ€ฆ and the encouragement you might need will be there, too.

6. Some Provide Day Care

If youโ€™re a busy mom, hereโ€™s another reason to join a gym: some provide on-site day care, so now you have no excuse for not working out! Send the kids to the childrenโ€™s room for an hour, and get to sweating, mama!

7. The Cost May Be an Incentive

Finally, the reason to join a gym for the cheap-skates like me: if you pay for it, youโ€™re probably more likely to actually use it. After all, why let that membership fee go to waste?

With so many excellent reasons to join a gym, what are you waiting for? Start gathering suggestions from friends and check a few of them out! Which of these reasons convinced you to join a gym? Or was there another reason you joined the gym? Do tell!
