How to Save Money on Gym Memberships

It's the time of year where most people have created a new year's resolution. Usually the most common one is related to weight loss or getting to the gym more.

To help you save money while achieving your weight loss and gym/workout related goals, here's a little advice;

  • For students, their University athletic center often offers a relatively cheap gym membership for a full semester to a full year
  • Also check to see if your school's gym has free drop in classes or free admission into the gym for the first few weeks of school. See if you like the classes or if you like the school gym, if you do, inquire about memberships 

*If you have purchased a membership to your school's gym you also receive the benefits of a much cheaper price for classes which may include spinning, yoga etc.

Now if you have decided that you can't deal with cramped school gym's, check out this article from Self Magazine on how to save money at chain gym's

I always like to find deals on websites like Groupon, Wagjag etc. where you can often find great daily deals with savings on gym memberships. This tactic is mentioned in the magazine article as well. You can sign up for e-mail alerts to constantly get updated deals from daily deal websites.

*In many cases daily deals require buyers to be first time members at these gyms, make sure to read the fine print before purchasing

Also some great workout routines that you can complete without leaving your house.
