Sports Direct Fitness (formerly LA Fitness, Sale, Manchester) @ £10.33 a month (on 5 year upfront contract - £620)

Found 29th Aug 2014
Sports Direct recently bought the LA Fitness gyms and are running a 5 year upfront membership (Gym & Swim) for £620, which works out as £10.33 a month.

##### Only Sale, Manchester has the 5 year deal left. ####

Current locations

Glasgow - Argyle Street
Cheshire - Sale
Manchester
South London - Croydon / Epsom
East Sussex - Hove
Essex - Colchester
Surrey - Guildford
Wiltshire - Salisbury
Nottinghamshire - Newark
Birmingham - Kings Heath / Northfield
Warwickshire - Rugby

Ok, so clearly this is not for everyone. But if you live near one (like I do) then it's still an epic price for a very good gym. My local LA fitness best price was £33

Note this price doesnt include the classes, it's £1220 if you want them.

Hope it helps someone.

5 Years???

LOL

That's a bargain price.

Still not a bad deal. My local, council run, gyms are £430 a year paid in advance.

Not with sports direct it ain't what come back do you have if they close it down

sounds good, but what's the opportunity to buy out, or withdraw?
LA fitness are okish, but at least a known quantity and also only monthly ctts. whats to stop sports direct reducing the current services, cutting cleaning, turning down the temp in the pools/showers etc (basically, offering a sh*t, but technically acceptable in ctt terms, service) ?

gyms love it when you pay upfront, seems like a excellent saving to the person wanting to go the gym, until you find yourself saying i'll go tomorrow, i'll go next weekend, next week before you know it a years gone by

IMO have to be comitted to sign up to this deal

stick a balaclava on and casually take a x trainer as a deposit for the duration of your 5 year contract

Joke btw before a mod bans me

You'd have to be some stupid mofo to sign up to a gym for 5 years.
Or a fat moron Hyping

Do you get the option of a big mug for 99p on sign up??

Sadly nothing, not even a giant towel.

lol 5 years. dont do it!

Pretty good deal

Phew !

Theres no Edinburgh one so I can save the £10.33 a month it would have cost me and continue to spend it on crisps instead.;)

Cant see the 5 year plan on the site but its advertised at £300+ a year so I guess its a reasonable risk provided it stays open that long.Mind the local one doesn't even appear on their website for some reason only Manchester is listed......maybe they are separating the business.

Looks like the 5 year offer isnt available in all areas, maybe it's limited per venue. My local is Sale, which still has the 5 year deal.

Were is the Direct link for the deal I cant find it anywhere Op

Need more London locations.

There's a join us button in the top-middle of the website.

Five years gym membership ? Most people i know got bored in three months and don't bother going.
Sports direct will most probably go belly up before your membership runs out anyway.

Looks like the 5 year deal has gone in most venues.

My local is Sale, which still has the 5 year deal on. I'll update the post.


Not even most of Newcastle United want to be tied to cashley for 5 years and they are being paid by him, why would average joe want to pay him X)

Unfortunately mine runs @ £32/month which is extortionate for the facility's as I only want the gym not the exercise classes even LA Gym is only £33/month.
I have to look see what .dwfitnessclubs.com has to offer

I've changed the deal so it only covers Sale, Manchester.

Hopefully someone in the area will see it.

You should try living down this neck of the woods. They totally screw you for gym membership!

Hmm a 30 mile trek for a gym no I think Ill look elsewhere

yeah, currently paying £36

This is an incredible deal if you live locally! I have just joined, and the gym is exactly the same as when it was L A Fitness - I used to pay £36 then. Even many of the staff are the same.

Sports Direct are doing really well as a company, with good profits and growth, and have put a lot of money into the club (according to the manager). Also, I paid on a credit card, at no extra fee, giving me good protection if they do go bust. Contract wise, they have to refund outstanding membership if they make significant reductions to services - so they couldn't close the pool/Sauna/Steam room etc.

The local dwfitness are offering 14 months for the price of 12 @ 19.50/month so essentially £16.70/month if paid up front or alternatly £19.50/month with no contract if paid as you go.
