If the best thing about your gym is the price, then you are in the wrong gym.
I understand that finding a gym to fit your needs (pardon the pun) may be challenging. As a gym owner the first question that I’m asked is what are your rates. I agree price is a factor when deciding on which gym to join but not necessarily the most important one. If a gym is $10, $20 or $40 per month and it has 15,000 square feet of space at $32 per foot. The rent alone will be at least $40,000 per month that doesn’t include utilities and other overhead costs or payroll for staff. If the equipment is leased that can be an additional 3 to $4,000 per month. Let’s just work with the cost of rent. At $10 per month that gym would need a minimum of 4,000 members at $20 per month 2,000 members and at $40 per month 1,000 members. Any gym that operates at a cheap rate in order to entice people to get a membership is only interested in one thing. For you the member to make a commitment to paying them monthly. If everyone showed up to workout on the same day what you would have is chaos. The point that I am trying to make, is don’t let price be the only deciding factor on whether or not to join a gym. Ask what about the programs that they offer. Go check it out for yourself.Is it clean? Is the equipment in working condition? Ask about their peak times and when would be the best time to come in to workout. There are many gyms out there to choose from and if you take your time I’m sure that you’ll find the right fit.
