We take a look at the benefits between attending a semi-private gym and a commercial gym.
Over the past number of years, more and more people have become more physically active. Marathons have been sold out months in advance. Healthy food brands are being established at a rapid pace. And everyone seems to be joining their local gym.
But have you ever had the urge to join the gym but are reluctant to make the first step? A lot of people find it hard to have the confidence to get all hot and sweaty in front of strangers, especially when comparing their own physique to the people lifting weights next to them.
The good news is you don’t need to fall into this stigma anymore. Thanks to semi-private gyms, you can get the attention of personal trainers who will impart their knowledge of fitness to you. And the best part is, you don’t need to worry about whether others are staring at you.
Semi-private gyms are founded on the belief that anyone can make lifestyle changes to better their health while also feeling good about themselves. Shaun, a member of semi-private gym TPC, has spoken to us to explain the benefits of joining a semi-private gym in comparison to commercial gyms such as Flyefit and Ben Dunne.
“Semi-private gyms have a lot more sense of community,” Shaun said, “you go in and say hello to people and everyone there is striving towards being better. And everyone makes each other feel very welcome.”
For anyone looking to join a gym once lockdown restrictions lift, remember there are industry professionals looking to help you in their own facility. And always remember, the first step is always the hardest.
