Gym membership fees
I’m contemplating re-joining a large gym. The only way I can keep up my exercise motivation is to attend classes, so the treadmills in my apartment building don’t cut it; and while I’ve enjoyed exploring some of the new boutique fitness studios popping up (spin/barre, spin/yoga, etc.), I do somewhat miss the variety of classes at a large gym. So I’m curious, what do folks pay for their monthly gym memberships?
I’m especially interested in some intel on VIDA, as they’re near my home/work and seem to have a robust class schedule (although I know the Yelp reviews are mixed)–but other ideas are welcome. I know prices can vary by membership option and timing of specials, but in my experience most gyms want you to visit before they disclose prices–and I’d rather get a ballpark idea of whether a gym is even within my affordability range BEFORE I go through the entire sales pitch. (I was a member of WSC, and before that their counterpart NYSC, for many years, so I already know their pricing. I may end up back there, but over the past year I found their class offerings to be so-so and many of the instructors lackluster, so I’m investigating other options.)
