1- Professional environment: Exercise and bodybuilding is all about professionalism. If you think that you can get results without being serious with it, then you are totally wrong. You need to take exercise professionally and that is the only way to get best results. So first thing you should look at is whether the gym environment is professional? By professional environment I mean that do you see serious and professional people around you? Do you feel that gym management is serious or just trying to make money? Good gyms have professional environment and one can feel and see it easily.
2- Good quality equipment: Next you must focus on is that whether the equipment available is of good quality? By good quality I mean that you must see that modern equipment is available in the gym which is properly maintained and clean. Cleanliness is very important because otherwise equipment becomes rusty and can cause infections.
3- Good quality instructors: You must not forget to take into consideration that qualified instructors are available who are serious with their profession. Instructor is just like a teacher at school and quality of teacher very much determines the quality of the student. Make sure that there are qualified instructors and also that they are 4-5 in number so that they can pay attention to their students. Obviously the number of instructors depends on the size of the gym but normally for a middle level gym, 4-5 instructors should be available who can give proper time and attention to their bodybuilders.
4- General cleanliness: You must not forget to see that gym has a clean and healthy environment. Cleanliness is indirectly very important because if you are exercising in an unhealthy and ill-cleaned environment, chance of getting sick are high which may lead to poor bodybuilding results. So make sure that you get a clean environment around you.
