Is the Gym Scary? – By Grant Mchaney

So, is Gold’s Gym honestly scary?

I think a better question would be, is a strange new place with people you have never met, in a building filled with odd fantastical objects that you have no idea how to work scary? Of course but, anything I don’t know everything about scares me at least a little. That is why we try to make the transition of stepping thru the doors and embarking on your fitness adventure as easy and smooth as a glass of cold water on a hot summer’s day.

 

How the heck do we as Gold’s Gym employees help make this transition from average Wenatchee citizen to Superhero Fitness Adventurer? Well we try to do so in a variety of ways. The first one is always providing a fun and welcoming atmosphere in the gym as soon as you walk thru the door. This helps ease people into doing the hardest part of fitness. WALKING THRU THE FRONT DOOR.

 

Second we are always providing members with different options to meet with a trainer and help them get going onto their specific goals. Don’t know or don’t have any goals? Sign up for a Game Plan with one of our trainers and we will help you get set up with some goals…it’s free (hint, hint).

 

Third we love to be providers of information. Nothing is more annoying then walking up to the seated leg curl machine and seeing the 6 different adjustments on it and having no idea where the heck to begin. (It took me 3 days to figure it out). If you need a machine shown to you on how to use it properly and safely, we are happy to do that. That is why we have Fitness Consults. So we can take a half hour to go over any questions about how the machines operate.

 

Fourth we are always looking for ways to make personal training affordable and convenient for our members. Schedule a Fitness Consult to get a better understanding of the machines but if you are still hungering for more of a challenge sign up with a few sessions with one of our fun (and slightly oddball) Personal Trainers. The trainers can so you how to modify certain exercises get you more acquainted with functional training and even give sport specific workout plans or injury rehabilitation plans. We have several different types of training to try and make it as least expensive as possible.

 

So is Gold’s Gym really scary? YES but, let us as trainers and staff members help you shed some light on the scary gym and ease any fears you may have. If you would like to sign up for a Game Plan, Fitness Consult or Personal Training, feel free to schedule an appointment at the front desk or with a trainer themselves.
