How Do We Compare

When it comes to choosing a gym in the Harrisburg area, the process can be overwhelming. There are likely dozens of gyms within 10 miles of you, each offering their own unique pros and cons.

Factors To Consider When Picking A Gym


While nearly all gyms will offer common amenities such as free weights, cardio equipment, and other machines, it is the other services a gym offers which elevates it past simply being a place with equipment.

Member Experience

The overall member experience will also play a role in your overall enjoyment of a gym. Is the gym often over-crowded or unclean? Is the staff approachable and available? Do you feel that you can work out safely? These are critical questions to ask yourself when selecting a gym. Most gyms will claim they excel in all these areas, which is why it is important to read reviews and even test out the gym for yourself.

Satisfaction Stats


At the end of the day, one of the most important factors is price. It can be tempting to choose the gym with the lowest price tag. However, these gyms will typically have lower quality facilities and offer fewer amenities. It is important to weigh price against quality for any gym you consider.

How To Choose A Gym

Once you have compared amenities, weighed price against quality, and checked out a club’s testimonials you should be well equipped to make a decision.

However, to be even more certain of your decision, most gyms offer a free pass or trial of their club. Check to see if the clubs you are comparing offer a trial and then take them up on it!
