Choosing A Gym - A Fun Quiz To Help You Out!

Do you really know what you want in a gym? Would you rather workout at home or in the social atmosphere that befits a large chain gym. This quiz will help you get some answers that should make your decision easier to make.

When it comes to choosing a gym, how do you know where to begin? There are so many factors that play into it. Do you want a gym that is close to your work, so you can get a workout in before you hit the office?

Would you rather there be one close to home? Distance is a huge factor. How far are you willing to drive? Do you want an all unisex or all men's or woman's gym? Do you prefer a small select group that is tiny and intimate, or a huge chain that has tons of energy and people?

First you have to figure out what type of gym is right for me? Once you answer this, make sure that the gym you choose is convenient enough to where you live or work. No matter how much you love your gym, if it is a huge pain to get there every day, you won't be going as often as you should. Keep that in mind when making your decision.

The easiest way I found to choose a gym that was right for me was asking myself questions. The answers usually help you figure out quite easily where it is that you should really be training.

Here are is a quiz that will help you answer your own question.


Choose only one answer to each question.

Question #1
When choosing a gym, the most Important thing to me is:

A variety of classes and equipment. The more, the better.
Personalized attention. I have no idea where to start. I want someone to tell me.
Are there going to be lots of other men or women there? I hate a gym where I am the only guy/girl in a room full of the opposite.
A great steam room. Is there anything else more important?
Distance. How far away did you say it was?

Question #2
I like a gym that has:

Really flexible hours. Do you have any idea how crazy my schedule is?
Great trainers. I find training a lot easier when someone else does the thinking, and I follow the routines.
Not too many, or any, people of the opposite sex. Don't I have to worry what I look like enough time during the day already?
Trendy classes. How am I supposed to be with it if my gym isn't?
The same people that I know all the time. The fewer surprises, the better.

Question #3
When choosing a gym, the least important thing is:

Not that many people. I like having somewhat of a crowd, or people to watch.
A huge facility. The more intimate the better for me.
A variety of people to choose from for a date on Saturday night. The gym is about training, not picking up a date.
Price. You get what you pay for right?
Variety. Who cares? As long as it is convenient, I am so there.

Question #4
If you could only choose one thing a gym must have it would be:

A great energy, along with several different locations.
Personal trainers. I can't imagine training any other way.
A non-judgmental, very laid back environment. I would only feel comfortable that way.
A very capable and accommodating staff. I like to feel like my wish is their command. Or at least that if I ask for something, it could be done.
A way for me to know that I don't have to go far, and that there would be no reason why I couldn't train because of inconvenience.

Question #5
Last question. Now think carefully. In your life, you feel the most comfortable when:

There are several options. You hate to feel limited, or like your life is becoming monotonous in any way.
Someone else is taking the reins. You like someone else to take charge.
If you are a guy, around your guy friends, male bonding! If you are a girl, around your girlfriends, men just don't get it.
Being well taken care of, maybe even a little pampered. You deserve it!
At my house, apartment, office, or any place that is routine and very familiar.


Whatever answer you come up with, just make sure that you try before you buy. All gyms have some type of guest pass, or trial period. Trying the gym a few times is the best way to make sure that it is not too far, or inconvenient, that you feel comfortable, and that this really is the gym for you. Now get to work! You have lots of training to do.
