What are you going to call your gym?

One of the most important things in life is to maintain a high level of physical fitness, not only for appearance but for your overall health and well-being!

One of the best places to accomplish such a thing is at a gym! If you are thinking about opening a gym, you’d better be in great physical shape yourself. Ever hear the saying “never trust a skinny cook”? Well, the very opposite goes for a gym owner!

If you possess good managerial skills, financial means, and muscle power, opening a gym might just be for you! A plus would be that you would never need to pay a membership fee ever again, and you would have 24-7 access to all the equipment that your heart and biceps desire.

Gym Naming Tips

Making the decision to open a gym might be one of the healthiest and wealthiest decisions you can make for yourself. But what’s harder than making that decision is figuring out what you will call it. What do you name a gym? Here are a few tips to help you come up with some good gym names:

  • Type of gym: If you have a specific kind of gym, make this clear in the name one way or another.
  • Gender: If your gym is specifically intended for females or males, make this clear in the name also.
  • Use your name: If your name is Jim, well then that’s just too easy!
  • Make it sound tough: People go to gyms to get into shape, bulk up, and maintain a healthy appearance, they don’t want to go to a place that sounds like it’s for wimps!
  • Programs: If you offer a specific type of exercise program or class, using this can help draw in the crowd that will fill that class!

Coming up with gym names is not a difficult thing to do, but one of the major things you should pay attention to out of that list is the type of gym you are opening as the gym name should really scream what it's like inside.

Deciding on a Gym Name

If you are having a tough time naming your gym, you probably have a mind block which might just indicate that you haven’t been exercising your brain enough.

You know, your brain is a muscle too, but there are no weights that will strengthen it! Asking other people can help you get some ideas.

When making your list of gym names, make sure you are trying to think of names that will be easy to pronounce, easy to remember, and that it is a name that will give the impression you are trying to make to your customers.

Keep pumpin’ that iron and you’ll come up with a really strong name!

Keep track of your weight and your waist measurement, and take action if either of them increases. If your BMI is greater than 25, or even if it is in the "acceptable" range, at least try to avoid further weight gain. If your waist measurement increases, you are probably gaining fat. If so, take steps to eat fewer calories and become more active.

Great information, thank you for sharing this. Fitness is really important in your day-to-day life. It helps to stay healthy and fit. It also improves your body stamina as well as flexibility.

Juliette Kando FI Chor from Andalusia, southern Spain on April 02, 2016:

For many years, I successfully ran a couple of dance studios for the general public in central London. They were called "Every Body Dance Studios". Our logo was a pair of foot prints. Years later, after I had moved away from rainy London to sunny Spain, I stood in an airport queue to check in when someone nudged me and said: "Aren't you the lady from "HappyFeet" dance studios? I used to come to your classes."

This experience proves 2 things:

1. The Logo should match the name

2. Visuals (pictures / branding / logo) is easier remembered than words.

Crossfit would definitely make you feel the burn, so I find that to be a very fitting name for a Crossfit gym. You gave some great ideas for coming up with gym names. I think that being creative and catchy, but also to the point, is important. I find that I have an easier time remembering names that are unique or that rhyme.
