    Belonging to more then One Gym??

    I have Powerhouse Bev Francis which is 20 minutes from my house. I go to La Fitness now since itís 2 minutes from me but I was thinking of joining Bevís also.

    The dumbbells at La Fitness only go up to 100lbs and itís starting to limit me with certain movements.

    How many of you guys belong to more then one gym?

    I belong to two different gyms. My main gym is in the town I work in and is a block from my office. The secondary gym is in the town I live in and I keep a membership there for holidays, weekends, days I had to skip because of work, etc. I work about 15 miles from home so it benefits me to maintain two memberships.

    I belong to two gyms. One (Lake Park swim and fitness) is expensive, members are older, and the weight room is smaller. It has a hot tub, steam-room, full size pool, bar (shakes etc....) and supper friendly like a family. But when I need a spot I look around and there are two 70 year old guys in the weight room just BSing.

    The other is a chain gym (Crunch Fitness). It is huge and has anything you would want. But at $9.95 a month the membership is young and it gets very busy at times. Lots of eye candy and everyone is there working out, also easy to get a spot when I need one.

    It depends on the gym. Lake Park Swim and fitness for a single membership is 684 a year (57 a month) where planet fitness anytime fitness and most chains are 10-20 a month depending on options when you join.

    There is obviously a large range depending on the quality. 10 is about the cheapest, 150/month for the higher quality places. For a decent quality gym, they are around $30/month where I live.

    If I want my son to work out with me I have to go to a different gym than my regular one. They dont allow anyone under 14 on the floor.
    The othe gym just says stay with him and if he gets hurt its your problem.

    I belong to 3. My main gym ($30/mo) is where i normally go. It's a small family owned place full of guys i want to work out around, but never really talk to. Planet fitness ($20/mo) because i travel for work and they're everywhere, and my gym closes for every holiday. And the YMCA ($70mo) for family reasons. It's nice with good weights, but i rarely ever go unless I'm taking the kids to swim class, or camp, or something... Mostly because it's so F'ing crowded and everyone wants to talk.

    Best,
    C-





    Stop over-thinking, simplicity facilitate many things.

    Mine is 58 a month with tanning.
    I am done tanning though.

    Out here gym memberships are higher because there isnt as many people. We have plenty of good equioment but no decline bench which is pissing me off bad.

    I stacked up 2 thick rubberized plates on each side of so little gay calisthenics bench they have once.
    My feet wouldnt touch the floor.
    They got four empty treadmills at all times maybe get rid of a couple and get some real equipment!?

    I go to 24 Hour Fitness for $150/year. I locked in my renewal rate in the 90s so it's a lot less expensive than a new membership. I like that I can use any of their facilities. There are 3 of them within 5 miles of my home but I usually go to the one where I originally signed up.

    Mine is pretty cheap for Italian standards, paid 200 eur for 12 months sub, most trendy and lesser equipped gyms ask 2-3 times that.

    Only think lacking worth of note is DBs higher than 40kg or 90lbs.

    My gym closed with no notice. It was real old school gym and I loved it. membership was $100/year. I joined another gym that is close by and open 24/7 with a key card. I love that I can go at 4AM to do cardio if I feel like it however they only go up to 100 lb dumbbells and not that much diversity of equipment. I'm considering joining another gym farther away to go a couple times a week when I need the bigger dumbbells and more diversity in equipment.
