    When Choosing a Fitness Facility, What Should You Consider?

    • Check the training level of the staff. The director should have at least a degree in physical education or exercise physiology.
    • All instructors should be certified in CPR and first aid, and have a good understanding of anatomy. They should also have some form of certification from an accredited association in the subject they teach.
    • Instructors should teach and motivate ... not just take you through the moves. Good instructors are always aware of everyone under their supervision and are able to modify exercises for those with problems or special needs. Instructors should emphasize stretching before and after the activity to reduce the risk of injury.
    • Shop for a fitness club during the time of day that you will normally attend so that you can determine the amount and quality of supervision, levels of activities offered, and the general pattern of traffic at the facility. Fitness testing should be offered to determine a member's fitness level.
    • Check with your physician before starting an aerobic exercise program. As a consumer, you should be selective and ask as many questions as you like.
