    Are gym memberships negotiable?

    Are they flexible with their prices, if you played your cards right?

    Thanks for following :thumbsup:

    I guess theres no harm in asking is there plus a lot of gyms have seen a drop in membership due to people tightening their purse strings. I think the best time of year to join to get a good deal is after the new year

    True, but how come January is the best time? is it cos people are skint and don't renew their memberships?

    I'd say yes for Fitness First. When I was a member 3 of us used to train together and we all paid different monthly rates for same package I was £21, one was £24 and other was £32, only found out when my sister went to join and they told her it would be £45 a month and that was with a NHS corporate discount. 1 of my friends managed to get his dropped to £21 but then every 3-6 months you'd get a letter saying that the price was being increased, so we left.
    Moneywise it was the worst gym I've eever been to, cancelling membership was difficult to say the least, wouldn't recommend them

    thanks for that Peaj,
    I'm actually thinking of Total Fitness, it seems good to me, so I may give it a shot

    We actually have a special offer on at the moment, we'll waive the £200 sign up fee, and throw in this water bottle and tote bag, but be quick the offer expires in 13 minutes

    Not so sure about that, January always sees a huge influx of members at the Gym I go to, maybe New Year resolutions.. they all start keen but are all gone by March. I wouldn't attempt getting a discount in January
