So I have a Y membership but I have not been using it as I should. It is $40/month and I really do not have that at this time. Plus if I wanted to add my bf, and our roommate it would go up to $80/month. The thing the Y had going for it was the pool, but even that I have not been using. I know they just got new machines, but the work out room is just so small with how many people use the gym. It is going to be hard to cancel since I do like the people that work there but it is something I need to do.
The reason I can do this is because there is a new gym opening up down the street from me. It use to be that the Y was the only gym on this side of town and only about 2 miles from my house. Now a Planet Fitness is opening next week and it is also only about 2 miles at most from home. We went in today and signed up. All 3 of us can get the basic membership for $10/month each. So a total of $30/month for use to have the use of the gym. Now they do have a $20/month membership and it has some perks (massage chairs/beds, tanning, etc) It is not something we need at this time. Even if we upgrade it would still be less than all 3 of us going to the Y. The place is big and has lots of equipment. They use lifefitness brand items and each machine has a TV attached with cable. They have free WIFI. They are also open 24/7. It will be nice to be able to workout with my family.
Does anyone else use Planet Fitness?
