How good an idea is it to join a gym in January?

Blog Post 10/01/2020


We all know the stereotype; that of the enthusiastic and motivated New Year resolution-maker who sets his or her sights on achieving optimum fitness by the summer, and proceeds to commit to a gym membership... only to gradually lose interest and eventually give up altogether.

It’s a predicament that you might have found yourself in more than a few times down the years. So should you give in to the cynicism and accept January is just a bad time to sign up to a gym, or are there reasons for hope if getting fit is your big ambition for 2020?

Remember – it’s not just the timing that will determine your success or failure

In all fairness, there are certain reasons why you might understandably regard January as a bad time to become a member of a gym... and other reasons why it could actually make a lot of sense.

Yes, on one hand, gyms can be very busy at this time of year, which can be off-putting for some people. What’s more, a lot of people rush into signing up for a gym membership in Harlow or elsewhere simply because they think they ‘should’, rather than due to a genuine passion for pursuing higher fitness.

But with the ‘January blues’ also a definite thing for a lot of us at this time of year, the chance to get away from the pressures of the office and test yourself on advanced fitness equipment like the kind that can be found in our sophisticated three-tier air-conditioned Technogym, could be a very inviting source of escapism.

After all, what else are you likely to be doing with your free time in January? 

Experience the local gym that is so much more than a gym

If you’ve been comparing options for a gym membership in Harlow lately, you might consider Manor of Groves’ Health Club on account of a wide range of perks.

These include not only the aforementioned state-of-the-art equipment, but also the likes of the full induction to the gym that we can give you, as well as six weekly reviews with our qualified gym instructors, and the more than 65 inclusive classes you can choose from each week – encompassing group cycle, Pilates, aerobics, fit ball and Boxercise.

A 10% discount on Dermalogica treatments is also available from us if you register for our gym membership in Harlow – and that’s before you consider the pleasing rural backdrop that will make it even easier for you to concentrate on your workout with us in peace and contentment.
