How Much Is Your Monthly Gym Membership?

There are so many different types of gyms out there, from the no-frills gym with basic equipment and a ladies locker-room with no special touches, to the fancy gym with all the newest machines and sophisticated classes (not to mention the spa-like locker room).

Because gyms run the gamut in what they can offer, membership prices cover a huge range — you might pay $25 while your girlfriend pays $250. Not everyone has a gym membership and it's more than possible to get into great shape without paying a cent, but for those of you who do pay a monthly fee, how much does it cost?

i belong to 2 gyms actually. 1) $128 per month (and that's including the discount that i get through work 2) $69.99 per month basically i go to 2 gyms since the one that i really like is not located in NJ, so each weekend when i go to my mom's house, i wouldn't be able to work out and i'm a 7 day a weeker the other gym that i go to, the location in NJ is really nice, but the ones here in NYC are kind of gross so i prefer not to go to them. i don't like to work out in a place that gives me the willies.

I changed my mind about my comment saying that paying for a gym is like making a car payment, because at least I own more and more of my car every month hehe. So I do think it's a lil crazy to pay $200 for a gym . . .but to each her own :D

i work at equinox. so it's free. i used to pay like 18 per month when i was at the Y. i go that rate because i was 17 when i signed up and that was their youth rate.i've been really spoiled in my expectations because of equinox, but if i ever leave, i'll just join the cheapest gym in my area.

Free at my university! Used to be a member of 24-hour fitness (I think it was $39.99/mo for access to all clubs but super-sports) but the one at my school is so much better :)

I pay $19.99 a month at World Gym. I signed up during a special they were having, I think it is a little higher for people who didn't sign up then. But everything is included. There is a lot of equipment (treadmills, elipticals, bikes, weights etc), and there are many different classes that are offered everyday included in your membership like spinning, zumba, yoga etc. And there is a juice bar and a sauna. I loooove my gym.

omg i can't believe ppl pay $200 to go to a gym . . . i mean i guess if i made like $500K a yr I would do that . . although I guess in NYC or Chicago maybe you don't have to have a car and i do here in TX so I can see how expenses balance out in different cities perhaps . . .

I have my own "home gym", but I also belong to the gym at work so I have access to the weights and they teach free classes. I have the membership fee taken right out of my paycheck...$9.50 a check. It's a pretty good deal considering all the amenities it has.

We pay $70 for a family plan (my husband and I plus 2 sons) at our local gym. It has towel service, tons of classes, sauna, etc.. And, my husband also has a LA Fitness corp. membership because he travels for business weekly. We use our new local LA fitness to get a change of scenery. His membership is $24.

I pay $30 a month because I've belonged to the same one for years and they let me keep my price even as their prices went up to $75 a month. I'd be willing to pay more for a better gym (like Equinox) if there was one close to where I live.

The Gold's Gym near my house used to be $50/mo. I've been very on-and-off with them lately, but they dropped their rate down to $20/mo recently due to dwindling numbers. So I signed up again! I'm so grateful I don't have to pay hundreds of dollars a month for a gym membership... I wouldn't do it.
