I joined my local fitness center last year for £20 a month but as they say ...you get what you pay for.

At the time I got it on a student deal and it is due for renewal ( or cancellation) The gym is very basic but the pool and changing rooms are filthy and freezing cold!

It is very close to my work and about 20 mins from home.

I have been looking at a private gym near my home LA FITNESS I dont drive so it is very convienient! The equiptment is fantastic and it has beautiful changing rooms nice pool, sauna, jacquzzi and steam room! The team seem dedicated and they even have a computerised personal training touch screen section that give you print outs of what you should work on based on your 6 week check ups that come with your membership.

When it came to prices she quoted £44 a month I got her down to £36 then told her I would think about it

What do you pay and what for?

I pay £23.50 per month at my local fitness centre. Its partly ran by council, partly by a private company. My package is the off-peak deal, I can have unlimited swimming, gym, sauna and classes between 9am-3pm weekdays and anytime on weekends. I think its reasonably priced, my DH pays £6 each time he visits just the gym so the package is value for money. I could have gone in my uni gym for half the price, but its 30 miles away so by the time I've put petrol in my car to get there its not worth the discount! xx

£10.99 a month for a gym open 24/7 with no contract. It is just a gym with changing rooms, lockers and showers. Has really good equipment and is staffed during the day. Doesn't have a pool or spa or anything but I'm not too bothered by that.

£18 pm, which includes use of all facilities and classes, it has great opening times. Run by the local council, had loads of money spent on it a couple of years ago so that it would be used as a trainning facility prior to the Olympics, although the private run gyms are swish they cost a lot more bucks too.

£2 a month, work gym ;)

All the usual stuff, but no steam rooms or saunas or pools. We have two of those power plate things, plus pool tables and dart boards, tis more of a sports & social club but for £2 a month, I really cannot complain!! Haven't tried out the showers as I never have time (I go during my lunch break) and I don't sweat very much, but they're clean and tidy, and the changing rooms are too :) the water coolers ALWAYS have cold water and there are fans built into the treadmills so they blow cold air at your face (or in my case, at the very top of my forehead :p).

I pay 52 a month at the moment but when I turn 21 it will go up 76 a month, have given my 3 months notice for cancellation as there is a gym at work I can use for free, not nearly as glamorous as my current gym, but that's a ridiculous amount of money!

In my eyes that's a joke. Mines over half that for the same things.
