7. Try a Trial Membership First

I have several friends who wanted to lose weight and joined the first gym they found. As it turns out, the gyms weren't what they were looking for and they only went a few times. Ask the gym about a free trial membership or a discounted rate to try the gym out for a few weeks. Most are happy to oblige

. This gives you the chance to see if the gym's right before wasting your money. Pick the right one and you will get a lot more from the membership.

Gym memberships are well worth the money if you use them right. Always pick memberships that fit your goals and use them as often as possible. In the end, you'll be glad you joined. How do you get the most value from your membership?
