Finding the right gym can be a challenge sometimes. To be honest, there are so many options out there that it might make your head spin more than a spin class at one of the fitness centers that you’re considering joining. At CSS Fitness in Scottsdale, we want our gym members to be comfortable and confident in their decision to choose us, and that’s why we have our expert, personalized training and state-of-the-art gym equipment to make sure that you’re truly getting an incredible fitness gym experience.

But what is it exactly that people look for in a fitness center? Is it the friendly staff, or the maybe the environment? What about their smoothie options, or their fitness classes that are offered? There’s a lot of criteria that factor into finding your ideal gym, so in today’s blog post so we’re going to take a look at some of those criteria to help guide your decision as it relates to getting a fitness club membership here at CSS Fitness.

Sadly, while some people might visit their local fitness center just to have a ‘cool’ place to hang out, the local gym should be a spot where people visit for access to equipment and other fitness-related resources that they can’t get at home or at work. Now, while it is becoming more popular for companies to include a small fitness center at their offices, which serve as a great lunchtime workout fix, these gyms aren’t nearly as big or don’t offer nearly as much equipment as a legitimate, dedicated gym like CSS Fitness.

When you’re touring a gym, take a good look at their equipment selection – if you’re all about cardio, how many treadmills, ellipticals, bike machines and rowing machines do they have? Or if you’re all about lifting and strength training, pay close attention to their weight selection and strength machines. Equipment isn’t everything when it comes to choosing a health club, but it should be a primary factor.


This is where things like wireless internet access, a smoothie bar or cafe, showers, a hot tub and/or sauna, a steam room, or other nice resources come into play. These are all marketable items for your gym, but they also add value to a comprehensive fitness center experience that people are going to want to come back to.


Some gym veterans will go in, plug in headphones, and stick to their own routine (seriously, these guys might try and bite your head off if you bother them), but others are looking for a structured and scalable gym experience taught by an experienced training professional. From spin classes to weight training to cardio/weight hybrid training, there’s definitely a fitness program at CSS Fitness that works for everyone’s needs.


This is an important factor that people tend to weigh heavily when looking for the right gym solution. No one really wants to drive 30-40 minutes just to go to a fitness club that feels right when there are probably four other options that are much closer to them. Fortunately, CSS Fitness is conveniently located in the heart of the Scottsdale Airpark to cater to those who are just stopping in on business all the way to Scottsdale locals and everyone in between. Just like real estate, location is everything.
