Bally total fitness costs

If any of you guys go to bally total fitness clubs, what is it costing you? They have to call you to tell you the cost of a membership and I dont want to have to wait. I am just looking for a simple work out one and want to know what it will cost me monthly

Re: Bally total fitness costs

Get a mountain bike! Total aerobic and full body workout. And, it's fun, if you like the occasional broken bone. Don't ask me how I know, multiple times...

Re: Bally total fitness costs

Why are you going to pay for a "simple workout?" Running/jogging, pushups, squat thrusts, jump rope, crunches, situps, and dips. All free and can be done anywhere.

Re: Bally total fitness costs

Come on Bacchus, I've done a bunch of mountain biking, but it's not much of an upper body (other than back/abs) workout...unless you're doing gnarly stuff, which they don't have out there in Ill.

Yeah stegen, I'm with these guys. Start exercising with the basics, and if you are able to stay with it more than a month, then maybe consider the gym. This is for the following reasons:

Watch out for "membership" fees as they can be steep. Also watch out for mandatory contracts, many gyms require you to be a member for 6 mos to a year.

I belong to a small/cheap ($29/mo) local gym and love it. But I'm fairly serious about my workouts and tend to go in 4-5 times a week, sometimes with a mt bike ride thrown in on the weekend. I choose hotels based on their gym.

Re: Bally total fitness costs

I tend to look at it another way...You are more likley to go into the gym if the proper equipment is there than do it at your house with primitive means. Unless you are really dedicated or really, really know what you are doing with free weights and isometrics I would not hesitate to join a gym, plus it is a great way to meet some people

Oh yeah, my gym cost me 225 a year(plus it is at the local college so you get a bunch of other stuff like the rock wall, running track and swimming pool)

Re: Bally total fitness costs

Get a road bike like this one. Low impact and great cardio. Do 30 mile rides every day and you will be in shape in no time. Plus you don't get anyone hassling you about re-newing or paying your membership fees.

Am I going too slow for you?

Re: Bally total fitness costs

Bally's used to have an annual "Roll the clock back" membership program where you could get the same low rates as a longtime member if you brought in a copy of their contract. Not sure if they still offer it anymore...I dropped my membership years ago.

Re: Bally total fitness costs

I pay about $50 a month at Washington Sports Club . The only reason I pay that much is that I can actually see the gym out my back window. That alone motivates me to go on a regular basis. Proximity weighed heavily on my decision. Another motivator is a steady W/O partner.

I came here to chew bubble gum and to kick some ass...and I'm all out of bubble gum.

I've been a member since 1989 and pay about $10 a month. I was you, I would find someone who has a transferable membership, that is the cheapest way. Once you pay off the membership (first 3 years usually) the price goes way down, but only some of them are transferable. IMHO

Re: Bally total fitness costs

You can buy a transferable membership. Then you pay what they were paying $10 or $12, whatever they were paying a month. It usually costs about $1200 for a 3 year membership which works out to about $30 a month for 36 months. Then you pay your contract price $10, $12, $15 whatever was in the contract to continue your membership. If you find an old membership that is transferable you skip the $1200 and go strait to paying the ruduced monthly payment. The older the membership the lower the amount. This way you get an a low monthly payment they are not offering anymore.

Right! Rock wall, track, and swimming pool? More like college chicks on the rock wall, college chicks on the track, and college chicks in the swimming pool.
