New Year’s resolution time is right around the corner! Which is why the best time to join a gym is… well, today! Join a gym in December and you will likely get the best membership deal of the year.

Why is December the best time to join a gym?

While most health clubs and fitness centers are ramping up for the January rush, they still have year-end goals and numbers they want to hit. Just like any other business that sells products and services, they want to finish each year with strong numbers and new members – which makes it a great time to negotiate the best price on a gym membership.

Not to mention you’ll be able to take advantage of all of its amenities and services BEFORE the New Year’s Resolution-ists arrive!  At Future Fitness Centers, we have to admit, with all of the hustle and bustle that comes with the holidays, December can be a pretty slow month on the fitness floor. It’s not uncommon for many of our regular members to postpone their regular workouts to make room for shopping, baking, socializing and all of the other activities that come with the winter season.

This makes December a perfect time to:

  • Get a head start on your fitness goals. Whether you want to lose weight, strengthen your core, train for a future athletic event, or simply tone up, enjoy the opportunity to spin, swim, and sweat to your heart’s content without dealing with the crowds.
  • Try something new. Want to try Zumba, but, are afraid you might feel awkward? Curious about yoga, but can barely touch your toes? Think Pilates is only for girls? Now is the perfect time to break from the norm, venture out and try a group exercise class or experiment with a new fitness routine. You just might discover that you love it – and your body will, too!
  • Work one-to-one with a fitness expert. Take advantage of the slow period by making an appointment with a personal trainer or participating in one of Future Fitness’ special programs such as Pilates reformer, TRX training, or Fusion cross-training.
  • Get a great deal. Future Fitness is currently offering one of its most competitive membership deals ever. Through the end of the year, you can join for $1 down and $10 a month.  It’s an offer that can’t be beat.

Healthy holidays – we’ll see you at the gym!
