Does location matter when choosing a health club or gym?

When choosing a health club or gym, probably the most important factor to consider is location. Why? Because when a location is more convenient for you, it’s more likely you will visit. Unless you have a home gym, making time to work out and go to another location to do so can be daunting and time-consuming. Try to find a gym close to your home or work, or a health club that is “on the way” to the office or school.

The proximity of your health club to your home or office can make a big difference in how much you engage in exercise. If you travel frequently, you might even want to investigate a large, national chain gym that offers a universal membership to any of its locations. If you are unable to find a gym that you like close to your home or office, look for one that is enroute to another place you frequently visit like your child's school or sports practice location.
