After so much enthusiasm about the idea of joining a gym,keeping membership becomes more than a chore.The following are top ten reasons why people cancel gym membership.
1.LACK OF TIME:Everyone seems to be too busy to go to the gym.It's either today they have to watch their favorite TV show or they have to be at the mall with friends.
After their 9-5 job,you don't expect them to be all sweaty doing cardio.Duh!

2.LACK OF MOTIVATION:Some people want instant weight loss so as soon as their gym workout is not making them lose weight fast,they lose interest.Other people also discourage and criticize them which makes them cancel gym membership.
3.LAZINESS:Laziness is a disease that can affect anyone.Some people are just too lazy to go to the gym.This mentality also holds for all lazy people,"that if they don't workout today,no harm is caused after all tomorrow is another day".

4.TOO EXPENSIVE:Gyms are taking advantage of peoples' desperation to lose weight and charge high registration fees and monthly fees.Many people cancel gym membership when they feel that their gym membership fees is taking a huge part of their budget.

5.EMBARRASSMENT:Most people feel embarrassed when they are gym members.They think everyone else is laughing at their flabby arms.Maybe on their way to the gym,it looks like every one they see is pointing fingers at them which makes them cancel membership.

6.POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE:Everyone wants to be spoken to politely and treated with dignity.Why should they go to a gym where anyone can talk to them anyhow?Never!People also cancel their membership if the gym personnel are no ready to assist them and answer their questions.

7.POOR HYGIENE:Many people stop going to the gym because the place might be too untidy.Lockers and washrooms are dirty,equipments are dusty,etc.Sometimes they quit when the gym personnel and members do not observe personal hygiene.

8.OVERCROWDING:Some gyms are not big enough to accommodate all users.Sometimes the equipments are not adequate resulting in long queues.

9.OUTFIT:You might be thinking this point is irrelevant.But if your favorite gym shoes are worn out or even your designer gym outfit is burnt whilst ironing the other day,I bet you wouldn't like to go to the gym until you get a new one.In the long run,you are going to forget and the gym will be OUT OF PLAN.

10.Some people do not also see the reason why they should join a gym.Why should they be paying for the things they can do by themselves.If they decide to run at least 1 hour a day,they can still lose enough weight without having to pay any money.

For your weight loss goals,joining a gym is highly recommended so you have to try very hard and overcome the barriers above.
It is very important that you make the right choice of gym so that you don't regret your decision later.



  1. Personally, laziness was a big problem for me, but I've found a friend, who loves to practice different sports and who got me outside. So, now I'm following a weight loss training program in order to lose my belly fat and with hard work I will amazing again! I can't wait...!
