The REAL Reason You Join a Gym

written by Mike Robertson

Today, I want you to think about something for me.

Stop whatever you’re doing – watching TV, checking Facebook, or pretending to work at work – and tune in with me for 1-2 minutes.

I want you to think about something that, on the surface, sounds easy.

Here’s the question:

Why did you join a gym?

Or, if you haven’t joined a gym yet:

Why would you join a gym?

And there are easy answers we can use here. Some of you may be thinking:

“I want to get out of pain.”

“I want to lose weight.”

“I want to get stronger.”

And those are all fine and dandy. But I doubt they’re the real reason you joined (or want to join) a gym.

If you want to figure out why you joined a gym, you have to look a bit deeper. You can’t rely on that first initial instinct.

Instead, think about how the above “goals” make you feel.

In other words, getting out of pain, losing weight, or getting stronger, drive a specific feeling that you’re looking for.

For many, it’s not about losing weight or getting leaner – they know, intuitively, that losing weight or body fat will help them feel sexy, or more confident.

For guys who want to build muscle or get stronger, that’s great, but they also like the feeling of being ready, capable and confident in their body.

If you’re catching my drift here, the same word came up twice:


We all want it.

We all seek it out.

But it often eludes us.

Making the gym a part of your daily (or weekly) ritual is one of the most sure-fire ways to increase confidence that I know of.
