My gym is $41/month, with unlimited group fitness classes included. You don’t have to register for classes, it’s a first come first serve basis. There was an initiation fee at the gym of like $230 (ridiculous), but over 3 years, I suppose it’s evened out. I also shell out $12.50 per small group boot camp training classes (twice a week). 

My unlimited yoga studio membership is $125/mo. I go enough times that it comes to roughly $8.5 per class. I think he charges $15 per drop in class.

Hi There! Fellow Alberta bride here! I live east of the Edmonton area and go to the new recreation centre in Ardrossan. It is AMAZING! They have drop in classes and I get unlimited entry to the gym there and millenium place in sherwood park for like $40-$50 a month!! I love it! Maybe there is a rec centre close to you that offers drop in classes? <br /><br />Also, I am doing this thing called 30 minute Hit! It is an all women high intensity kickboxing workout that is only 30 minutes! I LOVE it! Great workout and it costs me roughly $50 a month but I can go unlimited amount of times as well! You should check and see if there is one in your area and go for a trial! I’d be surprised if you didn’t like it!

AB Bride:  Lots of places around here charge around $10/class for drop-in. The most expensive I have heard of is a yoga studio that charges $15/class, even our leisure centers are $8-$9 each. For specialty classes like Zumba, Pole-Dancing, Piloxing the cost is $12-$15/class.

AB Bride:  Id be happy to pay more for a class I love, I dont care much about price in relation to type of equpiment (aka: ACTUAL cost to put on the class). If I love it and the class size & time is good for me, I’ll pay a bit more than if it was just an open gym membership. it would keep me going to the class and thats worth more to me lol

  • Wedding: June 2015 - camp in new hampshire

i would love to live wherever you guys are. i live in NYC, and most pilates/yoga classes are $25-35- more for the “trendy” fitness studios like barry’s boot camp, SLT, etc. you can get class cards for cheaper. most good gym memberships (gyms with classes, etc, not planet fitness) are anywhere from $80-$200 a month. 

i do crossfit 4x a week, and have an unlimited membership at a gym in brooklyn, and it’s $225 a month. there’s anywhere from 5-25 people in a class depending on the time of day, but all the trainers know everyone so you end up getting a lot of attention, but it’s definitely NOT cheap.

AB Bride:  

Is it weird that I can tell you live in Edmonton based on how you describe the rec center passes? I have the mid-range pass which gets me into all facilities and drop-in classes except for Terwillegar. I think it’s unfair that you have to have the most expensive pass just to use that one rec center, regardless of how fancy it is, it’s still a city facility, and all the other big fancy facilities are included in the mid-range pass, but I live in the North end so it’s not an issue for me. I went with the rec center pass instead of a gym membership because it was a comparable price at $52/month, but I can get into multiple facilities, take many different classes, and most importantly I really like to swim. I use the pool at my rec center almost daily. I occasionaly go to hot yoga classes at a studio near me, I don’t have a pass because I only go sporadically, it’s $10-15 per class, depending on the length and type of class. Otherwise I just stick with going to the occasional drop-in at rec centers, I like AquaFit, Zumba, and Spin classes, and I occasionally try out other classes just to see what they’re all about. I mostly just stick with swimming and lifting weights on my own, I’m pretty good at staying motivated, and I like routine, lol.

FI and I go to Golds’ Gym and we are paying $36 for both of us every month. There’s unlimited classes that you do not have to sign up for but just show up early to get a spot. 

I reccomend looking up Groupons for specific classes like hot yoga or pilates. I just got a deal for 30 classes for $145 (hot yoga).

I’m in Sydney and it’s about $25/week for the standard gyms. I’m doing a 2 week trial now at an F45 gym and it’s $25/drop in or $60/week unlimited. That’s a lot for me esp since I’m Canadian and still baulk at Aussie prices for things.

However I’m almost considering joining or just commiting to a month at least as I have attended 2 classes already and I’m convinced if I just showed up at a class 3x/week I would have my perfect body. These classes are AMAZING. I left feeling awesome AND covered in sweat.

I might do a month right before my wedding.

Just don’t waste money on something you won’t do. I’ve been floundering around at my past/current gym not seeing results. (They cancelled all the classes except for yoga because I was the only one going)

Pole dancing, yoga, pilates, jogging, all good, but circuit style/HIIT workouts are the way to go for any girl wanting to lose weight and get some muscle definition at the same time. Forget the steady state cardio. Start with circuit training or some class that incorporates both weights and cardio 3x/week and all that other stuff should be bonus workout.
