Like the food we eat and the air we breathe, the benefits of body fitness are innumerable. Some of these benefits which you may already know include; natural reduction in heart disease risk level, increased strength and flexibility, enhanced self-confidence, reduced susceptibility to diseases, increased happiness level, etc. But working out and keeping fit isn’t just about signing up in a gym house or lifting weights on a daily basis, it’s actually far more than just that. Being able to do our work out routines around supportive and like-minded people, having access to top-notch facilities and fitness equipment, availability of professional coaching, serene restrooms and bathrooms, security, 24/7 access, etc. are more vital factors. Luckily, there are fitness centers that can give all of these and more at very affordable membership fee. One of such centers is Anytime Fitness.
Anytime Fitness is an international health fitness center that offers professional fitness services aimed at helping people thrive through an active and fit lifestyle. This fitness center has over 2,500 clubs around the world with over 1,900 of those clubs located in the United States and the others located in other countries of the world like Australia, Canada, the UK, Japan, the UK, Spain, etc. With Anytime Fitness you are sure to get not just easy to use state of the art fitness equipment and facilities but also a happier place where you can comfortably perform your fitness routines at any time of the day or night you want. Anytime Fitness also gives intending members a 7-day trial period within which they have total access to the center’s fitness equipment and facilities and can later decide whether to sign up for a membership type or not.
Why choose Anytime Fitness?
Well if not for any other reason, Anytime Fitness lives up to its very name. Their fitness clubs all around the world are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year. Also, apart from complete access to home clubs, Anytime Fitness gives its members full access to all the other over 2,000 clubs around the world after 30 days of membership. Meaning once you’ve become a member, you have complete access to your home club any day, anytime; even any night. And after 30 days of using your home club, you have every right to tour the world just to work out if you so desire. Apart from these, there are other things about this fitness center that have made it very popular and highly recommended. One among the many is the way the center approaches and implements new features. Others include its hospitability, serene environment, assuring security, etc.
What do I have to do before I can get access to other centers?
You really do not have to do anything. Once you’ve paid for your membership and have used your home gym for a minimum of 30 days, you have complete access to all the others. Think about how much fun that can be. It is recommended though that you verify at your home gym that your membership “anywhere access” has been activated before going to any of the other gyms.
What is the membership fee at Anytime Fitness cost?
Depending on the location of your home club, the facilities available and other special services, the price for membership may vary from one Anytime Fitness club to the other very slightly.
On an average scale, members who desire to register for the monthly membership plan will have to pay an initial startup fee of $49.99 and then $38.99 for every other month. Annual members on the other hand will usually have to pay an initial fee of $49.99 and then an annual fee of $407.99 ($33.99/month). Whatever the choice of membership type, members also have to pay $35.99 for a key fob. Couples can also sign up together and get huge discounts compared to when signing up individually.
Anytime Fitness also gives discounts to monthly members depending on how long you want to be bound before you are allowed to cancel your membership. You can pay as low as $29.99 per month if you sign up for a membership that is bound by 2 years (24 months). This means that you do not have the right to cancel your membership with Anytime Fitness until after the agreed period of time has elapsed. Similarly, agreeing to be bound for a period of say 1 year (12 months), can leave your fee at around $33-$35 per month.
Why should I pay $38.99 per month when I can get gym services for as low as $10?
Well, choosing the right gym isn’t about the money you have to pay. There are a lot of other things to consider before drawing a conclusion on whether or not the fee is worth it. A few of such things you really should think about include;
- Do you have 24-hour access to the gym? Obviously, most of these gym centers that charge $10 per month do not operate 24/7 like Anytime Fitness does.
- Are the equipment up-to-date enough to help you achieve your goals? Except in few cases, a lot of the gym centers that charge $10 per month provide you with old, scrappy, out-of-date equipment.
- How close is the gym to you? A $10 fitness center can hardly make available numerous fitness clubs such that wherever you are, you can always simple walk or ride into one.
- Does the gym have other gym facilities like tanning beds, comfortable restrooms and bathrooms, etc.? You don’t have to study rocket science to know that gyms that charge cheap rates cannot provide these advanced facilities.
