Gym Membership

Postby synkronize » Mon, 22 Oct 2007 3:48 pm

Hi, anyone here are current members of gyms such as Fitness First, California Fitness and/or Planet Fitness?

I'm thinking of signing up and I've enquired with Fitness First over the weekend and I've been quoted the following:-

Joining Fee: waived
Admin Fee: $88
Passport Membership: $133
12 months contract.

I was told that California Fitness would have a much lower monthly fee but there are other fees involved, so it more or less adds up to the same. The reason why I picked out FF is because it's opposite my home and has more branches compared to others (plus swimming pool as well).

I used to be a member of CF back in Malaysia but cancelled the membership when I came to Singapore. I was paying MYR145/month back then.

Any good recommendations/advice?

$133 per month? :shock: While FF is nicer than Cali (if you like the pool), you're still getting gouged. I'm paying around $40/month for my Cali membership (2.5 years, prepaid) and it's not the best deal around.
