Family gym memberships

I’m thinking of a family gym
Membership and am curious how many people really use theirs and how.

I have a 1 yr old and a 4 yr old.

Any feedback would be appreciated!

    yeah.... at one point in time I had a home gym plus memberships at three other gyms.

    (it made sense at the time.... don't judge me.)

    anyway, two of the gym memberships were made with the kids in mind.

    Would I do it again? No, probably not.
    Instead, I would have just focused on the home gym until the kids were a bit older then joined another gym on my own.

    I still have the home gym and now the kids also use it.

    (and I have a membership at the neighborhood gym too..... but just one membership now.)

    Best of Luck!

    Our gym options around here are pretty slim pickings and I believe all of them have that the child must be 10 to use some of the equipment, 16 for most of it. Just something to look into. There is one that offers childcare for 90 minutes each day and also has kids classes (any age) but they can't use any of the equipment. I don't recall ever seeing anything for kids classes at the gym for the others around me.
