Dear pavan, the disadvantages of gym are overdoing exercises and sometimes putting extra strain on your heart and body. So be careful, do exercises only in moderation. Stop if they cause any type of pain. Check weather the gym has emergency kits. Also qualified trainer is also very important. Natural exercises like playing games , swimming are better than gym exercises.
