HOW MUCH MONEY DOES A GYM MEMBERSHIP REALLY COST?

HOW MUCH MONEY DOES A GYM MEMBERSHIP REALLY COST?

- 16 July

The average gym membership in the US costs almost $700 a year, according to a study by the Statistic Brain Research Institute.  

Based on estimations that roughly 15-20% of the total US population now has gym memberships, that means that there are more than 49 million Americans out there paying for a membership.  If that statistic holds true that means the gym industry is raking in well over $34 billion a year – yes, you read right – that’s billions not millions.  Now you ready for the really sad truth?  According to rough statistics, only 30% of the memberships are actually being used, yet people continue to pay for them. That would mean that more than $24 billion a year is going to waste.  That doesn’t even include the revenue generated from other gym-related services such as personal training.

 Now just think, you could save yourself over $600 this year by getting a set of resistance bands and a complete detailed workout plan, including videos, photos, descriptions and videos, all for under than $80.  Not to mention you have the freedom to your workouts with you wherever you want to go.  Check out our complete programs here
