Can I find a health club that encourages older people to join?

Older Members

Joining a gym is no longer just for the young. Most health clubs are now trying to attract members in older age groups. If you want to choose a health club where you can work out around people of your age (or sex, or size), ask the membership representative about demographics of their members, and when the group you're interested in tends to work out. As you work out more, you will be more comfortable exercising around other groups.

I absolutely agree. I am 51 years old and have been working out at my gym now for 3 months. My gym attracts members of all ages. I am in a step class that is made up of ladies from the age of 18 to over 50 years old. The class is dynamic in age, as well as, different body types.
