If one of your goals is a new body by the time the weather warms, you may be considering joining a gym. Before taking the plunge, there are some guidelines you may want to consider.
(----------------)
VO-NAT
SUPER=03-Denver, CO;


Many people who join a health club now will not continue to use the facility in the months and years ahead.
To keep yourself from being one of those health club dropouts-- dropouts who are still paying dues--you may want to follow a few simple guidelines when it comes to picking out a health club.
First--check out the equipment. Is there a wide variety and is it well maintained? It's also a good idea to check out the club at the time of day when you'll be using it. If you have to fight a crowd, you're less likely to stick with an exercise routine.
Second--is the club convenient? A good rule of thumb is to make sure that the club is no more than 15-minutes away from home or work. You're less likely to go if getting there is a hassle.
Third--the contract. You should be allowed to take a copy home with you to check it out further. Most experts recommend limiting the length of a contract to no more than a year, and be sure it has some escape clauses--in case you would move out of the area or be unable to work out because of illness or injury.
