December – The Best Month To Join A Gym

December - The Best Month To Join A Gym

December is by far the best month to join a gym. It’s a time of year where most people shift all their attention to Christmas, their health and fitness takes a backseat.

If you’re smart and determined enough to succeed in regards to your health, join a gym now! Not only will you be breaking away from the masses and starting your New Year’s resolution a month early (which also makes it a lot more likely you’ll succeed, most people who start in Jan give up by March…not to be seen again until the following Jan) but also it’s a time of year where gyms and trainers cut prices and get rid of ‘joining fees’ (which is also a massive con, it does not cost £25 for a gym to set up a direct debit).

So, join a gym in December, get a head start on the masses and take advantage of discounted membership and personal training.

The gym can be a very intimidating place for some people, especially for people who believe they’re either far too big, or too small.

At first glance, this might seem strange. After all, the concept of a gym is to give people a place to go so they can transform their health. In its most simplistic form, it’s a place for people to become either smaller, or bigger.

But unfortunately, almost every gym I’ve been to (in England, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia & Sweden) has just a small number of people seemingly set on ruining it for those who really need it.

If you’re overweight and feeling slightly insecure about yourself, of course the idea of going to a place where people are going to point, laugh and ridicule you will not be one you’re even remotely willing to entertain.

If you can relate to this, I would like to offer you a few words of encouragement.

For every person that points or laughs, there will be so many more people that are both directly and indirectly motivated, encouraged and inspired because of what you’re doing.

Putting yourself in a position where you might face ridicule, but choosing to ignore it, get on with what you’re doing and keep progressing towards a healthy goal will also silence those who once laughed; and maybe open their eyes to how small-minded they have been.

Also, if you are the type of person that points and laughs at people in the gym for not looking a certain way, remember this…
