11 Factors to Consider When Choosing The Best Gym in Livonia, MI

When you’re looking for the perfect gym membership near you, it’s like finding your soulmate. You have to take some time and really think about what is important in a place where you might spend a good deal of your free time.

It’s hard to know where to start when looking for a new place to workout. You’ve probably taken a minute to Google search something like “gym near me” or “best gym in Livonia, MI” and there are so many options, and it can be tough to figure out which one is the right fit for you.

You want an environment that suits both what type of fitness goals and personality you have! Luckily we at CrossFit North Industry are here with eleven tips to help you make this process as painless as possible:

#1. The coaches are attentive and take the time to learn your name and goals

Coaches at a good gym will take the time to learn your name, your goals, and what you can do. They will also be attentive during the class and help correct your form or provide feedback on how things could potentially go better for the next workout -or possibly prevent injury if needed!

The coaches make you feel important and part of a community. When you walk into the place you’re going to workout, you should feel like you’re home.

At CrossFit North Industry, we know every single one of our members on a first-name basis, we are like family.

We know how much more motivating it can be to do it in a place where you can be yourself and meet like-minded people who are focused on getting their health back.

#2. The community is thriving and the members are welcoming

A good gym will have a sense of community and the members will be welcoming to new people. There is no better way to make someone feel like they are a part of something than by being warm and inviting.

Being part of a great community gives you a sense of belonging, social support, and a place to share common interests and goals with others.

Everyone may show up to a workout with a different goal in mind, but you all still share a common goal. To be better today than you were yesterday and to do something that scares you a little bit every day. These are the things that bring people together and create community.

CrossFit North Industry is a great place to make friends and find support.

We have monthly challenges, social events, and workouts that are themed (Halloween, Christmas, etc). We love to get together outside of the gym and support each other in our fitness journeys!

#3. It’s not too crowded

A good gym will not allow the classes to get too crowded. This can be a problem at big box fitness locations, but it’s not as much of an issue at a small independently-run local group training studio. We won’t oversell our classes for profit.

At CrossFit North Industry, our class experience is important.

So we limit class sizes, to ensure everyone has enough space, and the coach on duty can lead the group. 

In other words, you’re not just a number at our gym. You’re an individual with goals and we want to help you find success!

#4. The programming is constantly varied

A good gym will have constantly varied programming in their workouts that keeps you coming back for more. You don’t want to do the same thing day in and day out. Not only is it boring, but you’re also less likely to see results.

At CrossFit North Industry, we scale daily CrossFit workout programming for all levels (beginners, intermediate, and advanced).

This way everyone can make progress and learn at their own pace. In addition, our programming is constantly varied so you never get bored.

Every day, you show up with a game plan already built for you:

  • We take you through a proper warm-up to get your body moving.
  • We will discuss the day’s movements as a team to give you confidence.
  • Discuss the scaling options to match the workout to your ability.
  • Perform the daily workout
  • We cool down together post-workout with a proper recovery focused session that includes stretching and breathing
  • Record your performance in our app to chart progress
  • Follow habit and behavior-based nutrition guides we give you outside of the gym to enhance performance, lose weight, and gain strength
  • Get good sleep to wake up sharp and recovered for the day ahead

Our daily workouts are posted online the night before. Our coaches design each week’s programming to ensure that you never do the same workouts twice and are excited about a new challenge. We want you to love coming to the gym and getting in shape!

#5. The coaches are certified and practice continue education in-house

All of the coaches at a good gym will be certified. This means they have completed a certification course and know how to coach proper form and technique. 

However, being a great teacher is a life-long endeavor, whereas certification is only typically a weekend-long commitment. So at CrossFit North Industry, we have a culture of continued education, we meet with our coaches regularly to educate them and better them as leaders and guides within our community.

Our staff is incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about CrossFit, it shines through in the way they coach and care for our members.

We are constantly learning and growing as a gym and we want our coaches to be the same! One of the biggest values of our gym is the feeling like you have a knowledgeable personal trainer guiding you through a great workout, without paying personal trainer prices!

#6. There is a sense of accountability

The best gyms will have a strong sense of accountability among their members. This means that members are held to a high standard and are expected to work hard.

At CrossFit North Industry, every member completes their scaled version of the workout of the day.

Then we log results to chart progress at the end of each class. Because what gets measured, matters.

We are all accountable to each other and it’s one of the things that makes our team and tribe so special. When you’re held to a high standard, you rise to meet it. And that’s what we see every day at CrossFit North Industry!

#7. The equipment is well-maintained and there is enough for everyone

The equipment at the best fitness studios will be well-maintained and in good condition. You don’t want to workout using broken equipment or machines that don’t work properly.

At CrossFit North Industry, we invested in top-quality equipment.

We ask each member to wipe down after use, and return back to its area after each class. Each member finds their space more appreciated for it because of how caring our culture is towards the great equipment we all share!

We limit our classes, so we don’t get crowded. We also have enough equipment for every member on the floor during a class workout.

#8. It’s not too far away

A good gym in Livonia, MI will be close to your home or work, so it’s easy to get there. If it’s not close by, you’re less likely to go use your membership and workout.

CrossFit North Industry is conveniently located in Livonia, MI just off of Farmington Road and I-96

When considering the different local gyms to join, look for ones with great reviews and lots of happy members.

#11. The overall value of the gym membership

Value is an important factor when deciding which fitness gym to join. The overall value you receive should be weighed against the cost of membership, as well as how much care and effort is put into developing a community, creating a clean and safe space, top-notch equipment, and amazing coaches who care and know you.

At Crossfit North Industry, we a not going to be the cheapest gym in town, but we are going to be your best value.

MITCH CIESLAK

COACH

My name is Mitch Cieslak and I am a coach at CrossFit North Industry. I started doing CrossFit in November of 2014 and I have loved every second of it! It has given me the ability to live a healthy lifestyle I was looking for.

I first gained interested in fitness due to my sports background growing up. As a kid I mostly played soccer, golf and basketball. But I have a passion for basketball and had the opportunity to play in College. Growing up with a team mentality has carried over to the community at CrossFit North Industry. Having a large background in sports and fitness has taught me fairly well how to take care of my body. Coaching at Crossfit North Industry gives me a place to teach others how to do the same. I focus my coaching on helping our members become better versions of themselves, and giving them a positive impact in every class they attend.

We are always looking to have a fun, improve out fitness, and make the best out of everything. Positive Vibes Only!

REY GARZA

COACH

My view of fitness changed on 2013 when I was introduced to Crossfit. Like many, it immediately had my attention. I became a coach because I saw the positive impact it had on my physical and mental health, so I wanted to pass that on to others. I work a full time job and am married to an amazing woman who does Crossfit with me. I also have three great kids who I cant convince to do Crossfit with me. Kids. Aside from spending time with my family and friends, I enjoy coaching others in fitness, living a mostly healthy lifestyle, and am an avid Steelers fan. Go Steelers!

Currently, I hold a Crossfit Level-2 certificate and my goal as a coach is to continue learning, weather through Crossfit or other effective methods. Physical and mental health go hand in hand with one another, and I believe exercise is the perfect medicine for both.

DENNIS FENRICH

OWNER/HEAD COACH

I’ve been working in the fitness industry since 2002. I started training myself when I was 15, started eating right when I was 21, and started training people when I was 26. I’ve been passionate about taking care of my body and living a healthy lifestyle for over 25 years now.

My belief is that every one of us should know how to take care of our bodies. I’ve spent the majority of my life working with a wide range of people to help them do just that. From 14 to 82 years young, college athletes to double knee replacement patients, to people who wanted weight loss to people who needed weight gain. Over the past 16 years I’ve accumulated roughly 70,000 hours either doing, teaching, or learning about health and fitness. All that time invested has helped me have an incredible clear understanding of how to work with people and coach them to their health and fitness goals.
