A friend of mine is paying $17 a month but it's at Bally's. Not wanting to switch to them with their forever contract bullshit but I'd be willing to try Lifetime, Larry North or anything else close by (SW Fort Worth).
As long as you have a multi-club package, I dont really think that is that expensive. Especially seeing as how 24 hour fitness plans to double the amount of clubs they offer within the next 3-4 years.
If you compare the size and amount of equipment in a 24 hour to a bally's or smaller club, you can see the difference in the price amount.
Most 24 hour supersport clubs(old Q fitness clubs) are about 50,000 sq. ft. They contain swimming, sauna, jacuzzi, plenty of cardio, free weights, and tons of machines.
If you join a lower level club, the membership prices will obviously be cheaper.
Only some of the Bally's are that size and can compare in quality.
Another thing to keep in mind is the hours of operation. Depending on when you work out, this can be a very beneficial service if they stay open 24 hours a day, or close at 10pm.
As someone stated earlier, a month to month membership is going to be more expensive. If you pay in advance for multiple years, the deals will be better.
