Cheap Gyms Want you to fail….
When I meet a new client they often tell me the only time they’ve been in a gym is to buy the membership and they’ve never gone back.
Or they go for a few weeks or months and then life gets in the way and they never go back.
Does this sound familiar?
What if I told you it’s NOT your fault?
What if I told you the dirty little secret in the gym membership game is not only do they not care if you show up, but they’re even setting you up to not show up.
Would it surprise you if the entire gym industry was based on hoping and helping you to fail.
Last week a very interesting intereview and article was writen about EXACTLY how and why super-low priced gyms work.
The interview goes into the psychology of not just a gym designed for you r sign up for but never attend(and YES they’re DESIGNED for you to fail.)
And the psychology and tactics used to keep you paying the $10 membership even after you’ve never used it in 12months.
Sure you’ll get a great deal….
At the expense of your health and welfare.

Here’s the deal if you want results look at what’s going on at the Low-priced gyms and do the opposite.
-on your own
-no plan or direction
-no like minded group of people
Coaching and Training programs
(Like The Body Firm)
-Personalized goal setting, planning, and support
-Groups of like minded people
There’s a REASON gym memberships fail.
Because they NEVER wanted you to be successful in the first place.
