Common Problems With Gyms

What's Your Gym's Biggest Shortcoming?

The end of the year is a good time to reevaluate and renegotiate your gym membership to ensure you are getting what you need at the best rate. If you workout at the gym regularly, it's crucial you are comfortable, and it is meeting your needs, otherwise you'll have just another excuse not to show up and sweat it out. How does your gym stack up?

Pretty much every gym I have belonged to hasn't had convenient class times. They are all at either early like 6 am or super late like 8 pm. If only they could have some between 10 and 12 or 2 and 5.

Inconvenient class times that are either in the morning or afternoon during the weekdays. Ugh.

i workout at my college's gym which is really nice but the crowds get so annoying around peak times! Also I hate the first 2 weeks coming back from break because there is even more people in the gym thinking they are going to stick to their new year's resolution. unfortunately for them (but fortunately for me haha) they stop going

I love my gym, but it's so crowded, especially from 6pm-11pm when everyone's rushing in from work or school.

No classes or pool! It's a very nice gym (and way too expensive), but it's walking distance from my work. The convenience is worth it for me...Even though I do miss classes.

No pool! I have been there for 5+ years, with no complaints.

Not enough ab equipment in the ladies fitness room, having a "class" within the ladies fitness center, which is already crazy small- they should use the bigger fitness rooms, and a transparent door where people can just stand and watch you workout (sort of beats the purpose of having a private ladies fitness room)
