The Right Gym Membership May Help Consumers Save
There are many ways consumers can fit in fitness expenses without breaking the bank, according to U.S. News and World Report. One way is to search for the right gym membership that offers both classes and a general workout area. Meredith Poppler, vice president of communications and engagement for IHRSA, said, "If a consumer truly wants to save money on fitness classes, their wallets would be better served finding a multipurpose gym or health club that offers a range of fitness classes included with a monthly membership. Since the studio format has become so popular, more and more 'traditional' clubs have been adding studio-type programs and dedicated studio spaces into their offerings." Other cost-saving tips include looking for deals on services like Groupon or buy favorite classes in bulk.
