On the outside, the recent and quickly growing trend towards 24/7 gyms can seem like convenience gone mad. Surely some things just don’t work within an always-on model. And, is anyone really going to hit the gym at two or three in the morning?
Perhaps not (though no shade if middle-of-the-night sessions are your jam!), but there are more benefits to a 24/7 gym model than you might realise. Even if you would never dream of hitting the workout equipment past ten at night, for which we don't blame you, you might just find that the increased accessibility and reduced pressure of the 24/7 gym model serves you well.
After all, with fewer people onsite at any given time, and with the ability to plan workouts around a time that always suits you rather than gym opening hours, it’s often easier to stay motivated and get into a good workout groove. That’s not to say that 24/7 gyms are going to work for everyone. If you’re happy with your traditional gym right now, then more power to you. However, it might be worth giving your local 24/7 gym a go if you’ve previously struggled with the following things.
