5 Ways to Weigh a Health Club Offer
Staff qualifications. All clubs have weight machines, cycles and steppers, but do they have the staff that can help you use them properly?
Price. The less money you make, the more important this will be.
Variety. Your club should provide enough choices so that you avoid a rut and work different muscles.
Lifesavers. Does the club have anyone trained in cardiopulmonary resuscitation and other lifesaving techniques? For that matter, does the club check on your health? Does the club have a defibrillator?
Escape hatch. Your membership agreement should include a "cooling off" period that lets you cancel within a certain time without penalty. The standard is three days.
