To go or not to go, that’s the daily question. The answer is simple: go. Here’s everything you need to know about gyms and how to use them.

Then there are also the regular gym pests whose irritating habits drive you round the bend. Recognise someone you know? Also make sure you don’t make these gym mistakes.

Let's just say you feel uncomfortable exercising in front of a bunch of well-toned women and macho men, who in actual fact, don’t look as if they need to be there in the first place. You're self-conscious about your legs – and everything else. Perhaps home exercise sounds good. With Health24's home-gym programmes, you have the choice to exercise when it suits you. All it takes is a little more discipline.

You've just moved to town, or you've discovered that the gym you're currently attending has become a local pick-up joint. It isn't time to drop out. It's time to find a new one. How do you go about this? Here's how.

So whether it’s the yoga instructor you detest, the long circuit queues you loathe, or the constant athlete's foot you're getting from the shower facilities, the fact remains that you shouldn’t make excuses for not going. Go on, it'll make you feel good. Guaranteed.
