For most people, first impressions are powerful determinants of whether we are attracted to or not to another person, a place, an event, a book cover and so on. Impressions of fitness centres can follow this rule of thumb too. The first walk in through the entrance can be confronting or on-the-other-hand, a comfortable, welcoming feeling.
At Healthfit we understand that the environment and ‘vibe’ is very important to prospective new exercisers and to those who have been attending for some time. We understand also that there are many factors that have to be considered to get the environment just right and yet know that what is perfect for one person is not for another. For instance, some like to have music playing through our stereo while others prefer their own through earphones, and others to be exercising in the quiet. Some like to come when the atmosphere is busy, chirpy and socially engaging while others might have had a talkative day at work and just want to focus on their movements and breathing efforts in peace. The latter is more often the case in the afternoons at Healthfit Exercise Centre. We do our best to adapt the temperature and airflow to suit who is in the centre at the time and yet cannot please everyone. Most like it cool and therefore want the aircon on.
We love the variety of ways our clients interact with and tolerate each other and it is facilitated by our friendly and sensitive team who are always on the lookout for our members’ comfort and safety.
It is heartening too that initially hesitant and maybe even nervous starters soon become accustomed to both their exercise program and the happy environment that they chose from first instincts to be their place of ‘getting fit’ and enjoying the process. We hear from our centre users that their previous ideas about ‘gyms’ have changed and accept that our environment here is different and more inclusive.
Of course, our unique benefit is the qualified support and expertise of our staff and this will always be the number one reason that Healthfit has survived an onslaught of many new gyms and fitness centres in the area. We look out for you and are ready to update or upgrade your programs as soon as you need to. And for those who definitely do not want to be active in a centre, home programs can be designed to suit and achieve your goals in a different way.
