What Can You Do For Me?

This isn’t the local flea market, but yes, it’s okay to bargain when it comes to a new gym membership. You probably won’t get a reduced monthly fee, but since there are different types of gym memberships, you can always try haggling for a better deal. However, it’s key that you do it before you join. Try one of the following:

  • Ask to have the initiation fee waived
  • Ask for weekly passes or an extra month
  • Compare it to another gym with lower prices
  • Ask for free passes for friends and family
