    $99 a month for a family membership to the Y. Totally worth it, considering I can get into a Y wherever I travel.

    Occasionally I'll need to get access to a gym when the Y isn't open and will pay anywhere from $5-$15 for a one-time pass.

    Nothing :smile: My gym memberships are free through my health insurance.

    If you have Blue Cross / Blue Shield check into their wellness program. I pay $25 a month and it gets me into multiple gyms. The one I use the most is LA Fitness. I can go to any of them. This helps when I travel.
    I'm blue cross. Mine is $20. Perhaps it's based on location...

    and I'm blue cross and I pay nothing per month.

    I pay $62/mo for a membership to the YMCA and that covers our entire family (me, the hubs, and our two girls). That gives us access to the pool, all classes, and the childcare center.

    Okay so what I'm seeing here is that most people have some kind of deal for being a student, having Obama Care, through their work, etc. Bummer, none of that would apply to me. I miss being in college and having a super nice facility for free.

    Nothing...our local high school built a fitness center with donations a few years ago and it's now open 24/7 and free to anyone living in the school district. I live in a very small community. It has a variety of cardio equipment plus weight machines and free weights since it's used by the school sports teams for training as well. Just did my first workout with weights last night.

    Dang, y'all! I Googled gyms near me and checked prices on at least a dozen of them. There was literally not a single option less than $75/month. Is this a big city problem or what?

    Are you in North America or Australia?

    I'm in Texas. Apparently it's expensive here.

    I was shocked to read in the OP that the Anytime Fitness facility close to you is $250/mo. I have an AF membership and including tax is about $46/mo. Granted though, mine doesn't have a pool and such but it has a good amount of equipment and I love being able to go ANY TIME

    Yeah, this one markets itself as being a "premier club", aka very upscale and overpriced.

    $75/month for a family membership. That includes unlimited use of our 24/7 gym, plus 6 smaller "express" gyms throughout the city for my husband and me. 2.5 hours of childcare a day included, all group classes included, sauna, steam room, pool, jacuzzi, resistance pool and more squat racks than I've ever seen in any gym, ever. It's huge - never a wait for equipment. And my health insurance reimburses 25% of the cost each month as long as both my husband and me go 10x each. Pretty good deal for our area.

    Your prices seem outrageous, OP! Where do you live? Even when I lived in Los Angeles, I had a membership to a 24-Hour Fitness for $28/month!

    Anytime Fitness for $20 a month, no live classes, but virtual classes whenever I want. Another community center gym for $30 a month that I joined mainly for the pool. I was paying daily visit fees and if I go once a week, it was cheaper to just join. $50 total for the month and I go 6X a week usually.

    "Obama Care"? Must have missed anyone mentioning that. Also must have missed the subsidized gym membership section when I read the ACA. :D

    No Obama care discounts, work discounts, student discounts, I pay $34/month, plus $10 for unlimited group classes. Gym has tons of equipment, really nice locker rooms, classes, and a pool.

    I pay 67$/ month plus a 100$ yearly fee (and I want to say it was 200$ to sign up) for my membership, the gym is smallish but has good class selection. I pretty much go for the classes. It is a chain so I could add additional locations (most of which are bigger and have more amenities, like pool) for an additional fee but I wouldn't go enough to make it worth it. I could find cheaper gyms, or nicer gyms for a little bit more but this one is within walking distance of my apartment so that's why I stick with it :)
