The Ultimate Joining-a-New-Gym Checklist. by Anthony J. Yeung. January 3, 2018. 1 Comment.

Share it: The time has come: You’re ready to get into shape, and you’re looking for a new gym. How do you know which one to join? Don’t let your excitement (or a sales rep) lead you to joining the wrong place. Use this Checklist Before You Sign On. Posted on February 21, 2017.

Amping up your workouts by joining a new gym? It can be tricky to choose the right gym, fitness facility, or rec center. Study these 5 C’s to make the best choice: convenience, cleanliness, curren. The prospect of starting anything new is daunting enough.

When it comes to health and fitness however, and joining a new gym, the intensity is increased even further. What you must always remember though is this, everybody had their first day at some point. There is nobody who is born a seasoned pro. 02dec(dec 2)7:00 am 28(dec 28)7:00 pm Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh India Yoga Teacher Training Course in Rishikesh, India as confident teachers with a strong and solid teaching skill set ready to begin their career in the world of Yoga.

6. TRY A GROUP CLASS. Group classes can be fun. They’re a great way to meet people — and their structured nature means you’ll always have marching. The Cost: $10 per month with no commitment; $19.99 for a Black Card membership, which gives you access to any location and the option to bring a friend for free; $1-$10 sign-up fees, depending on.

Here are the Things to follow before joining a new gym. Keep the following things in your mind the next time you’re hunting for a new gym, as there are criteria much beyond a free workout that you should consider before signing a long-term contract: 1. Location Matters. 4) Ask For Help. The best way to ensure you get the results you want at a gym is to seek out guidance right from the start. The type of guidance you can get varies per fitness club, but typical offerings include personal training (usually for an additional fee) or basic orientation from a qualified staff member (often included in the price of your membership).

How to create the ultimate home gym. 14 Aug 2020, 12:07pm Comment: Yoga is like flossing for the mind – a boring but essential act of self. If you’re thinking about becoming one of the 45.5 million Americans who belong to a gym, make sure to ask these expert-approved questions before signing on the dotted line-you’ll get ripped.

  • Hey guys, please join us on the PictureFit Community discord! We’ve had lots of great discussions and would love for you to be a part of it. Also, we’re looking for more people with expertise or education in the health and fitness field. We have some already but can always use more. If that’s you and you wanna help out some of your fellow bros and broettes, please come join the server and message me directly! Hope to see you guys there.

  • For cheap, small and portable equipment for strength training outside a gym. It is hard to beat gymnastic rings. Takes care of pretty much everything except lower body training.

  • If all people are gonna do is use the treadmill in a gym your just throwing money away since your wasting hundreds yearly when you can just run and walk for free outside!

  • Funny part about no1 is that as a beginner i started a bit with machines got to free weights like for years and now that im more experienced i find myself coming back to most mashines more than free weights again.

  • honestly, i feel like #3 is wrong, imo most beginners try to use too much weight because they’re insecure about how much they lift and don’t get contractions or even perform the exercise right. but i def are where it’s coming from

  • I’ve been taking group classes only for years because I find the gym floor intimidating. so I hired a PT. everyone was saying how people at the gym don’t care what you’re doing, but what I’ve noticed is that is not true at all. Everytime I have my PT session taking a rest between sets, I can clearly see that people are also resting and looking at what everyone else is doing……

  • So w 300 I can purchase a clean healthy protein powder, a great pre-workout, some good shoes, and have 20 bucks for the membership (plus maybe enough for some yummy Luna bars). I run 2+ miles almost every day. I lift every day. I switched out of my old gym for a planet fitness because of how clean and versatile it is, the 24/7 availability, and the fact that when I travel they’re literally everywhere. ����‍♀️ ima stay w PF. Lol

  • What you need in your gym bag:
    0. Your gym membership card
    1. Sports Cloths and shoes

    2. 2 towels, one for the cardio and one for showering
    3. A bottle for water (or other liquids)
    4. Flip-flops or something similar to prevent direct contact with the shower room floor.
    5. Fresh underwear, socks and shirt (Optional, but good practice)
    5. Shower gel, deodorant, (cologne), hair wax/gel

    Keys, smartphone, headphones are usually always present, when you leave the house.

  • Ironically the most I exercise is when I don’t have a gym membership.. a pull up rod, a pair of dumbbells and running shoes is all you need..

  • I feel like this is doing the opposite of what the beginning should do. The machines aren’t great but they’re good for the beginner to get into a good form

  • Spitting to make weight? Seriously?
    Now the wanne be scientist in me wants to get a measuring cup and a sliced up lemon and see how much saliva one can produce that way.

  • Best: homework up
    Push up
    Sit up
    Pull up
    Price: none (except pull up if you want to do it in home),( you can do pull up in some park)
    Day: 30-infinite
    Result: you will see your self.

  • What you actually NEED:
    Water (dont rely on protein shakes or pre workouts)
    Keys with your gym card tag
    Dont rely on unnecessary things, this is coming from a girl

  • this lad is doing neck exercise and can anyone tell me if his doing this exercise right?

  • Something to keep in mind make sure to stretch before and after! Doing it before warms up your muscles and after is a way to cool down.

  • So tell your viewers the entire truth, don’t cherry pick information and tell them that it’s bad to go to PF gym, if it works for them and gets them up and being active that’s the only thing that matters, if your looking at others in the gym and not your own workout then your there for the wrong reasons.

  • First, your eyeliner looks fly af.
    Second, this video is out just in timeI’m currently packing to leave for nationals and I’m super nervous about forgetting something stupid. Thanks!

  • PR’D MY BENCH!!!! 65#!!! Which, yeah, is really shitty in comparison to like, everyone but!!!! I never really bench so i’m super proud!! (Kinda makes me want to get into powerlifting ngl)

  • I don’t need people to motivate me at the gym. I have planet fitness and I love it always have. 75lbs what’s wrong with that? I get great workouts there. Got my pre workout, headphones and a great clean gym. Is all I need. And ten bucks a month can’t never go wrong.

  • I wish some people were more quite at the gym. banging and slamming weights and making dumb noises, doesnt mean youre cool. Even if the weight is really impressive, it is still considered intrusive and invasive. There is a weight limit for everyone, and imagine if every one decided to lift very close to their max potential, and for that awful reason, would bang and slam weights and make noise. The entire gym would be shit fest. Plus when you slam weights and make dumb noises, it distracts me from focusing on my form and exertion. it is best to have some gym manners regardless of how ARNOLD you are.

  • Hello one year later, i want to go to the gym but i am really scared, because my parents most my mom wants me to ( only the first time ) have like a ”teacher” that goes around the whole gym and explains how the machines work, and i’m really scared that everyone Will judge me�� Because If I want to go there i wanna be alone and not talk to anybody, and now I ( maybe ) has to have a teacher that is going to talk to me infront of everybody so everyone Will know that I’m new there. Please help

  • 1:24 like you know it’s not easy to integrate free weights if you’re under 18 years old and in Germany not legally allowed to use free weights in the gym

  • for some reason I hate going to the gym because I feel like everybody watches me but this motivated me to go anyway, thanks love ❤️

  • Re: the membership card, a lot of people screen shot it at regionals and showed that and the waiver that way. That way you aren’t standing there digging through your email backing up the line, but can swipe easily from one to the other. ����

  • I’ve just been getting in shape recently and in regards to the last mistake, just today I asked a guy to check my form on squats(because they’re the most uncomfortable for me) and I found out I was apparently leaning to far forward, not keeping my heels on the ground, and not going down far enough. While it was rough making adjustments, (I near fell backwards), I actually felt more of the workout afterwards, as well as I was able to lift more with my heels in place. Ask For Help. It is important haha

  • I was shy at first but then I started thinking I AM paying monthly just like everybody in here and I will use anything I want. I WILL get my moneys worth. Thinking like this really helped me.

  • I’m 13 and I feel really insecure about my body in fact I hate myself. I talked to my mom about it and she suggested going to the gym to produce “positive hormones” with physical activity but I’ve never flippin been to the gym before or seen anything besides the kiddies pool in the gym from when my mom took me and my brother once a week for fun… sooo yeah I’m scared and wondering what the hell it’s like or if I’d be the only child there and stuff…

  • I just got my planet fitness membership and I went everyday except for two days and it makes me so nervous especially when I’m trying to adjust the weight machine things. Like I’m really short and they’re made for tall people��

  • My local gym costs 10 dollars per month. I do calisthenics anyways, but when quarantine is over i will go the gym to complement my body weight exercises.

  • Good God. I’m surprised he didn’t recommend everybody bring an altitude mask.

    Weight belts: Most people now understand that they don’t need belts for their workouts. The days of every guy showing up at the gym with a weight belt in his bag ended about 25 years ago. Belts provide a placebo effect for about 80% of the people who use them. Only a small fraction of people in the gym are doing the movements and moving the weight that actually require you to use a belt.

    Knee sleeves: Pretty much the same thing goes for knee sleeves. If you want to look like a middle-aged softball player, that’s fine. But if you need support for your knees, get actual support and, again, only if the movements and weight you are doing necessitate it.

    Fitness trackers generally don’t really work for shit. If you want to set goals, find an app and log the amount of time, intensity and type of workout. That’s going to do just about as good of a job, and you won’t be that douche who walks around the gym with a frigging fitness tracker on.

    Lifting straps? Again, only for people doing certain movements moving a lot of weight. Otherwise, if your hands are too weak to maintain their grip, it’s a pretty damn good sign that it’s time for you to stop doing that movement before the rest of your form breaks down and you hurt yourself.

    Pre-workout: if you’re too fucking stupid to know how to get caffeine and sugar some other way and are desperate to have the local GNC vacuum out your wallet. The money saved can pay for courses about how amino acids and protein work.

    Wrist wraps: If you are more of an exhibition lifter and give a shit what everyone around you thinks about what you’re doing, by all means use wrist wraps. But if you are okay putting a little less weight on the bar, and doing your lifts in a more physically sound manner that helps you avoid injury, you don’t need them. Just use straight wrists. Seriously, what grown man gives a fuck about what his max is or what his PR is in front of a bunch of strangers at the gym? Whatever moron decided that pressing large amounts of weight with your wrists bent back at almost 90 degrees is a good idea should be taken out and shot.

    In general, people are way too concerned about compression these days. Just because a modern NBA player can’t shoot without a fucking condom over is over his arm doesn’t mean you need to wrap every single piece of your body. Those guys can’t even dress themselves or put on condoms, but we’re all busy about making sure we’ve got compression tights and sleeves on.

  • Not to be a downer but really annoys me when people say no ones looking at you in the gym had to quit my gym because one of the people who works there would follow me about and try and talk to me and ask me out constantly, like everyday.

  • Reese, my fat percentage is 19.6 and have muscle mass of 16.5. I weigh 40.7 kg. i’m 156-157 cm.

    I want skinny ass legs. I will kill for skinny ass legs.

    I joined the gym 5 days ago, and my legs are bulking.!!!!!!

    I had relatively skinny legs I wanted a more skinny legs, AND THEY ARE BULKING AND GETTING BIGGER LIKE HOW THEY USED TO BE BEFORE I DIETED, I used to diet and exercise at home using my body weight.

    i’m sssooooooo shook at how 5 days worth of workouts just made them look bigger!!! I hate it i’m absolutely mad and sad and panicking, but I see all those girls on youtube who lift heavy weights and train their legs, and they have very very skinny legs ��

  • been watching you for a while and just binge watching a lot of your older videos. i’m disappointed you keep referring to “make sure not to look homeless!” you’ve recently apologized for using the word “savage” so I wanted to comment on here and give you feedback. This language is not well chosen, incredibly ignorant and unnecessary. I hope you can be more mindful of how language is so important, and shows your values and empathy for others. Idk if you’ll see this but I thought I would try!

  • Saved up and bought a squat rack, barbell and weights for my garage. 4 years later I save saved hundreds on gym fees and use it regularly

  • Never new that a moisturiser and own shower will get you better gains xD. Just go to a cheap gym and to a seperat sauna once per week will be way cheaper.

  • Please don’t forget that those people at the gym were once new comers like you!! they are not there to judge you but to work on themselves

  • I don’t know if this is a thing in other countries, but in Germany you can usually make an appointment for like a free Gym session with a trainer to get to know the gym and see how everything works. I found that very helpful when I went to a gym for the first time:)

  • No one is watching you haha sike there’s tons of video of people recording people who don’t even know how to use the equipment lol

  • I was engaged with the video at first, until you started sounding very arrogant. If you’re going to make a review on different types of gyms I would advise you to not degrade the people. All gyms serve the SAME purpose, same GOALS

  • I was in the gym and it was almost completely empty, the only two other people there were two bros hitting arms or something. I was doing leg day but to show them I ain’t that much of a bitch I maxed out my bench in their face to prove dominance.

  • So my dad got a member ship and wanted to bring me for my b day bc I’ve been asking today is my first day and I’m 13 so I’m so nervois

  • I started today and I didn’t wait enough time after I ate. I was dizzy and nauseous. I had to stop and I only got 30 minutes in. I rather stop than pass out. I had a coffee and 1 hour later oatmeal. I didn’t even wait 30 minutes and I was at the gym already. Any advice?

  • What is women’s obsession with cardio? I don’t get it, when I go on gym dates sometimes. My girl just goes straight to cardio, and doesn’t lift with me �� Like cmon bae spot me

  • Here’s a tip for the beginner ladies. Don’t put all your shit on a bench to use it as a table while you work out next to it. This is literally only women who do this.

  • sus videos en ingles son mas vistos, nos abandonaste hermano Jose, your videos have more views in english, Im latin you left us brother Jose

  • I know this is video is targeted towards beginners etc.. But I love Isolation exercises for body building specifically because I want to actually train and build quality muscles with the exception of compound movements of course) and I feel like if you really want to actually get results especially in the beginning when it comes to the actual development of muscle—isolation workouts are the shit.

    And I don’t necessarily agree with the amount of reps either when it comes to increasing weight… I feel like if you’re asking beginners to lift heavy and do small repetitions so vaguely… it doesn’t quite make sense because that’s actually how one would hurt themselves.. if anything I would just say not adding enough volume or perhaps not switching up your workouts every few weeks…

    At the end of the day it all comes down to actually having the motivation to get up and go.. So keep your consistency and don’t fail on that.

  • After years of putting off going to the gym because my social anxiety would hit the roof just thinking about it, I finally picked up my lady balls and went and oh my lord I dont know what I was scared of! At first when I walked in I was intimidated but 1 of my friends said to just take some headphones and a good playlist in my phone and block out the rest and so I did. Went alone, asked the trainers who work at the gym on how to use the machines, he gave me a run down and off I went with my headphones in.

    First thoughts I had when I walked in was: “omg everyone in here is going to look and laugh at me, turn around and go home”

    Last thoughts before I walked out the gym doors: “Wow everyone is in their own world and actually doesn’t give 2 flying F’s that Im here. Im going again!”

    Honestly, I dont know why I took so long to go. People are there for the same reason, themselves! Their own personal goals! They dont care about you. Once I was in my own zone I found I didnt care what others were doing either.

    Give it a try guys! U got this ����

  • The belts are very smart advice. Especially when you get older. I always have them in my gym bag. Knee and back protection is smart.

  • I am new to the gym and as a beginner i have enjoyed it a lot, my gym has an app that helps you create your own workout and it shows you how to use each machine Totally love it!

  • i’m thinking about joining my college gym when i start this september but i’m a bit nervous cause i’m a lil fresher who’s never stepped foot in a gym before.

  • Spending more money doesn’t give you more muscles. Pf has plenty of good equipment that can help you gain muscle and lose weight. All these walnut brain guys who think they are better because they go to a different gym are losers who try to put down people because they can lift more weight then the average human. I myself have gained almost 20 pounds of muscle at pf, and I also have a life outside of the gym. Workout wherever the hell you wanna workout

  • Does anyone else find Katie & Andrew extremely cute together?!!
    Like, I always go ‘awhhh’ when they say ‘& That’s our two cents’ at the end hahah

  • bro the first time I went to the gym I went with denim cause I was planning on swimming instead of exercise and even the staff at the gym where staring at me

  • Watching this guy go through his workout reminds me of the video he did about watches, during which he was wearing a watch that was too big for his wrist during about the first half of the vid.

  • The best time of my life was when I first got tye hang of the gym, worth every penny. Now that I’ve invested into a home gym, I can workout whenever I want, including during quarantine.

  • I signed up for a 3-month membership. Learned on the spot all the tips and tricks. Tomorrow will be my last day and I went 4 times per week. Now I learned enough exercises to continue the rest of my fitness journey at home with equipment I’m planning on buying. Because now I know what I used the most in the gym. But one tip, go to the gym with someone who can guide you.

  • Our december weight loss challenge is to lose 15 lbs (7kg) and I am doing IF 18-6 and we are vlogging daily to document the progress

  • Dosent matter how much it is if u know what ur doing how pretty the carpeting is dosent matter and dosent mean youll get bigger with 300$ a month cause its about effort and not like this guy whos talking who says that 20$ a month is for people starting out. He says that cause hes a coward and hes weak dosent matter how much the gym costs but planet fitness is ass though i agree
