This Is How To Get Free Exercise Classes And Gym Memberships

In about a month or so, everyone is going to be freaking out about getting a gym membership–hence why it’s better to join one now. It’s so hard to tell whether you’re getting a good deal, though, no matter the time of year. The salespeople are slick–they tell you it’s a “special offer,” but who really knows. There is a good sneaky trick for getting free exercise classes and months of gym membership that most people don’t know about, though. What is it??

It’s to go to gyms when they open a new location! Especially in the city and other dense areas–there is so much competition for “hot” exercise classes like spin and barre, that when a new location opens up they are likely offering special promotions to get people to go there. It’s usually a marketing effort to get the name out there and get people to leave their current gyms. I’ve gotten free spin classes when a certain popular spin chain (ahem) opened a new location near my office. If you see a location open near you, email the manager or walk right in and ask if they are offering free classes or months of membership. It’s worth a try, and usually works out!
