Fitness Clubs- Will paying in advance be wise down the road?

February 26, 2010
WeightsJoining a fitness club always poses a dilemma for most people. Will I really get my money’s worth, will I still be motivated to go in 6 months, and will the gym still be open in a few months? Now there is a new question, will the gym still offer the amenities that I joined for? These are all good questions, and should be addressed before joining a gym. You should research different gyms and the fees. BBB provides a list of considerations before joining:
  • Check with BBB first.
  • Determine your fitness goals.
  • Consider your budget.
  • Check out the facilities.
  • Ask around.
  • Don’t give in to pressure.
  • Read the entire contract.
  • Know the membership details.

Remember, that paying upfront can get you a discount; you need to consider both the pros and cons of that option. BBB offers tips on joining a fitness club.
