Save Money By Taking Free Classes Instead of Using a Trainer

submitted on January 25, 2011 by pablos17 in "Member's Lounge"
I’ll let you in on a little secret: I think the free classes included in most gym memberships, used correctly, can whip most people into shape just as well as one-on-one training sessions. And, certainly, there’s nothing like a little peer pressure to make you push harder than you’d ever push training on your own. Knowing how to navigate your gym’s class schedule puts you in control and means that you can still get expert guidance and accountability, even during periods of tight budgets, unpredictable schedules or flagging motivation.

Every New Year, you see a good number of folks in the gym on opposite sides of the spectrum: The lurkers outside the classes not knowing where to start, or the “regulars” inside the classes, sweating away religiously but looking and performing no better than they did the same time last year. So, how do you navigate the class schedule at your gym to craft a program that will grow with you and make sure you see the gains you expect for the time invested?
