Choosing A Gym As A Bodybuilder


When you're a bodybuilder, you need more from a gym than the average person who is just trying to stay fit. As such, it's worth taking the time to visit a couple of different gyms, see what they have to offer, and choose one that will truly serve your needs. But what should you be looking for in a gym as a bodybuilder? Here are some key things:

Lots of Free Weights

Since you probably do most of your workouts with free weights, you want to make sure those free weights are readily available. You don't want to spend half your gym time sitting around and waiting for a bar or some plates. So, a gym with a big free weight area, lots of racks and benches, and multiple sets of plates is ideal. You'll want a place that also has a few treadmills or bikes in a corner and a set of weight machines, but those should be a smaller component of the gym—not its main feature.

Responsible Clients

Even the best laid-out and equipped gym can be a miserable place to work out if the other clients are not respectful. So, when you visit a gym, pay close attention to how the other clients are behaving. Does everyone clean the equipment after they use it? Do people seem happy to work in with others who are using the same weights and equipment? Do the clients put plates and bars back when they are finished using those things? If the clients behave like people you'd like to work out with, then that gym might be a good choice for you.

Certified Staff

As a bodybuilder, you need to know the advice and guidance you're getting from gym staff is sound and reliable. So, as you visit various gyms, ask about the education and certifications of the staff. A place where the personal trainers are fully certified and have experience working with other bodybuilders is preferable. You may not plan on working with a trainer day in and day out, but it's nice to know they are there as a resource when you do need some guidance.

Choosing the right gym is so important as a bodybuilder. You want a place where you can feel comfortable and confident, and where the equipment, staff, and other clients are able to help you meet your goals. Check out a few gyms in your area, and see which ones feel like the best fit.
