Six Reasons to Join a Gym

Table of Contents

“I exercise at home, I don’t need to join a gym.”

“Exercise videos are cheaper than a personal trainer and I can do them in the privacy of my home.”

Do these things sound familiar? I hear it from people all the time. There’s a place for everyone at the gym; and, in fact, there are several compelling reasons why you should join one! I’m here to provide you with six reasons to join a gym.

Access to Equipment

Gym memberships are often cheaper than buying equipment and hiring trainers. American Health & Fitness offer a multitude of equipment for different exercises and routines that can help you get fit whether you are a beginner or an advanced fitness enthusiast.

Meet New People

Gym memberships offer the chance to socialize with other people who share your interest in fitness. When you go to the same gym every day and each week, you may notice familiar faces. The gym has one of the greatest communities available, which you can become a part of. Every person is helpful and focused on the same objectives: to get in shape in some manner or another. It’s a great place to exercise, both mentally and physically. I’m a firm believer in the power of community, and I’ve seen it firsthand. Some of the people I’ve dealt with have formed lifelong pals at the gym.

Membership Perks

American Health & Fitness has two conveniently located facilities, in Moulton AL and Russellville AL, to assist residents with their health and fitness goals. We offer reasonable priced memberships with no enrollment fees. And as an added benefit for those that enjoy a nice sun-kissed skin tone, We offer free year round tanning. For women seeking a stress-free comfortable atmosphere, American Health & Fitness offers a LADIES ONLY AREA. Kids out of school? No problem, they can take advantage of our Kids Room, a play area dedicated just for them while you workout.

Less Distractions

In addition to that, you may be too tired after a long day at work or school. When your television is on, the TV remote falls from your hand and the radio immediately begins playing. As soon as you finish one exercise and start another, it can be difficult to stay focused due to these distractions. In addition, family members may want something and that is another distraction. So, by going to the gym and working out at a scheduled time each day you avoid these distractions and will see better results. You can get your workout accomplished in peace without the potential of having 100 other things get in the way.

Get Into Shape

Joining a gym is a great way to stay in shape. Whether you’re working out as a part of a healthy diet and exercise plan or looking to define muscle, American Health & Fitness has the right equipment when you need it. Maybe you need a little help along the way and enjoy an instructor led class than working out on your own. We offer a variety of group led classes to help get you started and stay motivated.


Joining a gym means you’ll be more likely to stay committed to your workout routine because you’re not going at it alone – there are other people around that will keep you accountable and push just as hard as you do! American Health & Fitness has a friendly staff that can help get you on the right track. With 24-Hour Access, we work around YOUR schedule, not the other way around.

The beginning of a new year is a natural time to reevaluate goals and make adjustments as needed. Maybe you’ve been considering joining a gym, but haven’t yet made it happen for one reason or another. If so, we hope this post has given you some inspiration about why going to the gym can be such a great decision! Listed here are six reasons why joining a gym can improve your health and well-being – plus they might help with weight loss too.
