You’ve heard the ads on television, at the movies and on the radio. Before signing on the dotted line, be aware of some different considerations. Don’t be afraid to negotiate for the best deal. After all, it’s your money, time and body at stake. The “membership associates” are salespeople and they’re eager to earn another sale for the month. They’re willing to work with you.
Look for seasonal offers, especially before swimsuit season and just after the holidays. Coupons can help bring your membership cost down. Know what you need and want before you set foot in the gym--the salespeople are going to try and sell the most expensive plan, whether it suits your needs or not.
Ask your employer if they have any discount gym memberships for employees. A gym may also offer discounts for members who visit during slow times. Read our Bright Hub guides for more information.
