Joining a gym can mean significant time and financial commitment and finding the right gym for your fitness program is therefore important to gain highest returns on your time and money investment. So, research the available options in your town or city before deciding. Here are four things to look for when choosing a gym in Nairobi.
- Location. The best gym for your exercise program should be located somewhere between your home and office. King’s Gym and Spa, on Rhapta Road, Nairobi is ideal for those working in Westlands and living in Lavington, Hurlingham, Kileleshwa or professionals and consultants in Nairobi on long stays as it is housed in the majestic King Post Serviced Apartments.
- Staff. Gym staff should be supportive and courteous, readily answering your questions and spotting when you need help on a machine. Look at certifications of staff and, if they charge for trainers separately, the rates for these trainers.
- Equipment. Are there enough machines for everyone or do you need to queue to get to a machine you want to work out on? In addition to number of machines, the gym should have a variety of machines. Do the machines have instructions posted on them? Watch out for out of order machines. This points to a poorly maintained gym.
- Classes schedule. Check that the classes you might like to take are scheduled at times you are available for training. Do you want high-energy classes? Relaxing yoga? Group classes? Do you need to make a reservation for classes?
