I would like to know which is the correct verb to use when talking about health clubs. Do you "join" a health club? Do you enrol a health club?Do you make an inscription in a health club? Besides, I would like to know if Gymnasium and health club can be used with the same meaning.
Thanks so much for answering!!
The two have meanings that often overlap. Health clubs tend to offer more - maybe a jacuzzi, a sauna, sun lounge... A place that was a Gymnasium may 'close for refurbishing' and then re-open as a health club (with increased membership fees, of course). Places that don't have room for a decent-sized gym (hotels, businesses...) often crowd a rowing machine and a couple of exercise bikes into a broom-cupboard and call it a 'mini-gym').
