More Than Just a Membership

posted on March 23, 2022

When most people initially join a gym, they don’t realize the opportunities that the experience can open for them. Sure, you could go ahead and do your own thing at home, but you won’t be gaining the social and personal benefits that you would get from being present at the gym. When you sign up for a gym membership, you are signing up for way more than just a membership. The gym is a great place to build new relationships and network while also strengthening your mental and physical health.


For those who are new to a gym and are maybe just starting out their fitness journey, it can be intimidating to walk into a gym for the first time. We have all been in that situation, and I was personally in that position just a few short years ago. My advice would be to not be afraid to try new classes and exercises that you may have never considered doing before. Check out a new class and use this opportunity to see some new faces and maybe learn some new exercises. From there, you could potentially build relationships and find gym buddies to have during classes and outside during your own training time as well. Also, don’t be afraid to ask questions. Our members and our staff at UF are some of the friendliest people and are willing to help anyone and answer any questions that come their way. 

No matter what stage of being a gym member that you are in (brand new or old), each of us have our own background and experience, but we are all at the gym to do the same thing: to better ourselves. So, whether you are coming in just to take classes, have a personal training session, or to hit that PR, there are several ways that you will benefit from joining and utilizing a gym. 


Make sure to say hello to any new faces that you might see throughout your training sessions and ask questions if you’re ever unsure of anything. You never know where that simple question or hello might take you!
