Darline Yatim Explains Resolution to Reality: Gyms vs. Health Clubs

PRLog - Feb. 27, 2014 - SHREWSBURY, Mass. -- It’s about that time of the year when the New Years “Resolutioner’s” cancel their memberships, and find a more “useful” way to spend their $30 a month. Have you ever wondered why some keep going after the “resolution” wears off and why others cancel their memberships, hoping for a better outcome next January? Perhaps those people who cancelled joined a gym instead of a health club. Health clubs and gyms are very different, contrary to popular belief. You may think the only difference is the equipment in each of these facilities, but the main difference lies in one’s goals for themselves and an atmosphere where a healthy lifestyle can actually become a reality.

Friendly Faces and Variety

When you walk into a health club, a friendly, familiar face greets you. It’s usually not just a simple hello either, but a conversation takes place, and you are treated as a member, not just a stranger with a membership. The atmosphere of the health club is warm and inviting, which makes getting up and driving there every morning something to look forward to, not a chore. You may have trouble deciding what you would like to do for the couple of hours that you are there, because there are SO many options. Maybe you want to do some cardio on the elliptical? Tennis? Racquetball? Some laps in the pool? Perhaps you want to take a class with a personal trainer, or check out the nutrition program that is offered. Why not bring the kids along and let them have fun in Kid’s Club Child Care while you do some group exercise? The possibilities are endless!

The Unfamiliar and Unmotivated

Now, when we try this same experience at a gym, it may go a bit differently. Just the word gym itself has a nagging feeling to it. Getting up to go to the “gym” may seem like something you have to do because you want to look good for your upcoming vacation to Cancun. The person behind the desk is usually new every time. Forget the conversation, oh and forget the Hello. You’re going to scan your key tag and walk right in. You will probably go on a treadmill for 30 minutes, and maybe lift some weights. Forget about the personal trainer, the two they employed are booked for the day. You also could not bring the kids because there is nowhere for them to go. You may leave after about 45 minutes, maybe feeling a bit dissatisfied with your workout experience. Instead of leaving feeling invigorated, you may feel disappointed and unmotivated to go back.

Choosing a Healthy Lifestyle

Going to a Health Club is not something you have to force yourself to do; it becomes something you want to do. No matter what your preference is, there is something for you to enjoy. Sure, a gym may be useful for just one month before you need to fit into that bridesmaid dress or before you go on that cruise, but that is really all they are useful for. It’s easy for one to give up on a gym; there are not enough options or incentives for someone to want to stay. In the long run, health clubs are ideal for people who want to live a healthy lifestyle. A health club can become an enjoyable part of your life, which can provide you with not only a healthy body and mind, but also a friendly, familiar place to retreat to.
