Save Pennies And Lose Pounds!
If you missed the annual lemming-like dive into gym membership at the beginning of the year but are still flirting with the idea of converting your beer belly into a six-pack – hold on!
The best is yet to come
‘If you can hang on till the beginning of spring you will get a much better deal’ said Will Broome, who set up his own website to help people find a gym in their area.
November and December are the best months to join a gym. January is, perversely, often the worst, and spring can be great for bargain-hunters once all the new year resolutioners have faded away. ‘They’ll be desperate to make a deal’ says Will.
Top tips for slimming down gym membership fees
- Act dumb, poor, and uninterested – and watch those joining fees shrink!
- Make sure you know exactly what you’re paying for for if you want to use the crèche. Get opening times, booking arrangements and fees spelt out in writing, otherwise you could be signing up for an ridiculous 3pm-5pm slot you have to book a month in advance.
- Go for cheap and deserted rather than trendy and crowded if you’re a beginner. That way you’ll get a personal trainer to yourself rather than queuing up behind the cast of Sex and the City.
