UC RecCentre – Gym hack #1: Hit the gym early!

The gym is pumping right now and we’re stoked to see so many of you hitting the gym already. Having said that, an overcrowded gym is not fun for everyone, so when is the best time to train at the RecCentre?

Recreation Centre photo shoot, showing all aspects of the Rec Centre facilities, badminton, balance exercises with balls, weight pack exercises, floor exercises on the mezzanine, Rec Centre reception, group weights in the gym, steppers, walkers, spin, weight machines, free weights, straps, yoga, rowing machines, 15.8.14

As always, there is no simple answer, it all comes down to YOU.  But here’s what we do know…

  • The earlier you come to the RecCentre, the quieter it will be in both group fitness classes and the fitness spaces. Hit us up before 3pm each day for less crowds and faster workout times  (less waiting and working in with others)
  • The exception is Saturday, where everyone gets here for 9am opening and it’s much less busy from lunchtime until closing

You may find the crowds motivating and energising, or you may find they drain your soul and make you want to run for the hills! Both are perfectly valid responses, we just need to find ways to accommodate our individual needs. We suggest you try out different days and times until you find a time slot that works for both your personality,  your schedule and your fitness buddy if you have one! Prioritise yourself and find a consistent time to exercise, blocking it out in your calendar as an appointment that can’t be rescheduled.

Need another incentive to hit the gym early?  Enter your name in our competition box at reception, post-workout (we’ll be able to tell by your red workout faces!) between 6am and 3.00pm from March 20th until April 9th, Monday to Friday.   Each day we’ll draw out one lucky winner who’ll receive a surprise pack of RecCentre goodies. (One entry per person, per day).

You’ve gotta be in (early) to win!

Lift. Move. Play.
