Which exercise environment fits your life best?
One solution is to join a health club and use it regularly. But some people, who have explored that route, don’t like the atmosphere in many clubs—the feeling that they’re on display and under constant scrutiny. Another turnoff: exercising at a club isn’t normally an activity you can undertake spontaneously, since it entails having to get dressed and driving to the facility. If the would-be exerciser has small children at home, the logistics of even a few minutes at the gym may become totally unworkable. The problem: when using a club on a regular basis becomes too inconvenient—or the ambiance is too distasteful—many frequently respond by stopping their exercise programs altogether.
