What's Your Favorite Gym Perk?

What's Your Favorite Gym Perk?

My last gym was a bare-bones type, so I never got used to expecting any extra perks from being a member. While talking to a friend, however, I was surprised to learn that her gym had member appreciation pizza nights and other social functions.

Putting aside the idea of eating pizza at a gym, extra perks help form a community at the gym and keep you coming back. Other gyms and sports clubs have different kinds of complimentary extras that make you glad to be a member. What's your favorite gym extra?

@TiVo, your gym sounds exactly like mine. I just brought a friend with me last week and she might be joining! Hurrah for workout buddies.

I love it when they give guest passes or have something where you can win fitness prizes. I HATE it when they bring a ton of pizza. Especially since I'm gluten-free and even if I wanted the pizza, I couldn't eat it. Nothing like trying to concentrate on your workout while smelling awesome pizza.

While I hate that my gym has pizza at it's member appreciation parties (who thought of that???), I do love the bring a friend for free days. There have only been a few, and they seem to be occurring less frequently. I love 'em though!
