Sport drink by RichD

What's the point of joining a gym? by Chris
I'm doing some research and am wondering what it is that people are really looking for when they sign up to a gym? When you have that first assessment, what is it that you really want to know from them? And, as time goes by, what is it that keeps you going? Looking forward to hearing from you.
