When the Gym is Packed to the Brim:Beating Club Crowds in January and February!

You probably haven’t noticed that the club has been a little busier here recently than in the summer months. (That’s a joke! I’m SURE that you’ve noticed). Typically, January and February are hectic gym months as people try to make good on their resolutions to get fit and live a healthier lifestyle.

For those of you who have a little flexibility in your schedule, it’s actually easier than you may think to find times when the club isn’t as busy. If you’re here and it’s PACKED, rest assured that a few hours earlier or a few hours later, it could be a lot different.

Here are some things to be aware of:

  • The busiest time at the club is between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. on weeknights, and on Saturday morning from about 9 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. Saturday morning is a great example of how the crowds change, as the difference between being here at 10 a.m. when it’s packed versus coming at 1 p.m. – only 3 hours later – is huge. The crowds are much smaller after 12 p.m. on Saturday.
  • Regarding weeknights, Mondays are the busiest, with Tuesday being a little less, Wednesday a little less than Tuesday, and so on down the week. Health club management industry publications indicate this phenomenon is not unique to us. For some reason – whether making up for weekend indiscretions or other motives – people just want to work out more on Mondays.
  • If you have some freedom in your schedule, the quietest time at the club is between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. any afternoon. But, remember to check our babysitting schedule if you have little ones, as we want to make sure that you’re covered if you’re bringing them.

Hopefully this information helps getting through these winter months a little easier. Remember – Spring Break is right around the corner!
