Staying physically fit is important for feeling good about yourself, but the membership fees can make you think twice about joining a gym or fitness club. If you know you’ve got the self-discipline necessary to make it to the gym faithfully each day, then you should look for the best possible deal and ways to save on a membership.
One way to save is to check with local colleges to see if their fitness classes and gym memberships are open to the public. More often than not, their rates will be far lower than standard gyms.
Another great way to save on your membership at your smaller (non-chain) local gym is by bargaining with the fitness club manager. He or she may be in a position to meet the price of a local competitor, and will almost always want to get your business, even if it's at a lower cost than normal. Times are tough for everyone right now, after all!
If you buy a gym membership but don’t use it, you’ll certainly lose money. You’ll save money in the long run by making sure that a fitness membership is right for you before you commit to a long contract. Why not commit to just one month to begin with, to make sure the gym is right for you? There are plenty of coupons in your local newspaper for one-week memberships for free, so you can see which gym fits your needs best.
If you’ve got warehouse club card, like Costco, you may be able to save some money on your membership at certain gyms. Associations count, so be ready to flash your card in order to make any purchases.
Lastly, your insurance companies benefit when you stay in shape, so it only makes sense that they provide discounts on gym memberships. Check with your health insurance provider to see if they offer any ways for you to save.
