So, you’ve just signed up for a gym membership with us at Vickery’s Sweat Shop – congratulations! We’re so excited to go on this fitness journey with you. Now that you’re ready to embark, let’s discuss how you can reap all the many benefits that come with having a gym membership to help ensure that your experience is as rewarding as possible.

How to Effectively Utilize Your Gym Membership for Optimal Results

  1. Variety is the Spice of Life. While it’s great to have a tried-and-true workout regimen, having a gym membership opens plenty of opportunities to try new things and keep your fitness life fresh. We recommend a mix of strength, cardio, and flexibility training, and there are plenty of awesome classes available to get you started when you’re ready to try something new.
  2. Say “Yes” to Extras. Most gyms, ours included, offer more than just workout equipment. Try out some of the awesome extras we have, like our infrared sauna therapy, protein shake bar, tanning beds, and online classes to really get the most out of your gym membership.
  3. Track Your Progress. One of the best ways to stay motivated with your fitness journey is to make sure you’re tracking your progress. You can use the tools available on our equipment, ask our recommendations for handy apps, or even work with a personal trainer who can help you keep detailed records of your progress.
  4. Build a Community. One of the often unexpected perks of a gym membership is that it’s a great opportunity to make friends. Join a few classes, start a conversation with your fellow gym-goers, or join an online community to connect with people who share your goals and passion.
  5. Be an Active Gym Member. Many gyms organize challenges or programs for those who have a gym membership with them. Keep an eye out for upcoming programs and try joining a few to add a little friendly competition and extra excitement to your workouts.
