Why Gym Culture is So Important
For many people, the thought of joining a new gym is terrifying which is why the gym culture is so important. The whole process of signing up, going to the locker room, and searching for an open machine is enough to give a new gym user a bout of anxiety. While working out is a conduit for boosting self-esteem and confidence, it’s ironic that the gym culture could have the opposite effect. When users pass into the judgment zone, that’s when gyms are in serious trouble.
Gym culture is the reason people keep coming back.
Nice, clean equipment is great. In fact, it’s necessary. Locker rooms? Awesome! But the motivation, inspiration, drive, and support are what really matter to a gym and its people. Culture is what keeps people coming back and showing up for their workouts. In turn, they see results, and they want to motivate and support others on their journey. The cycle continues. Culture. Is. Crucial.
Gym culture is also what makes each gym unique.
Some gyms are known for their casual style. Others hype up their specialty programs and top-notch facilities. Ours is about community. Yes, Team Afterburn is a gym, but it’s also a home. This is what makes us different from other gyms across the Valley. Some of our members have even fallen in love at our gym! We’re not saying that will happen, but it just goes to show how open and supportive our culture is to all members.
Without gym culture, the people wouldn’t have a purpose.
A gym culture attracts people who identify with the values within the culture. Casual culture attracts casual gym goers. Intense culture attracts intense gym people. In a community-driven gym culture, we attract people who not only want to make a difference in their own lives but also in the lives of others. The people find their purpose in the culture.
