8 No Contract Gym Memberships - Join the Gym Without a 12 Month Contract - Leanne Lindsey

As you are aware, this is the time of the year that has many of you signing up for the gym as part of your “new year, new me” fitness resolutions and goals.

Unfortunately, despite the knowledge that very few people actually stick to their resolution pass January, many people leap straight into signing up to the gym in January and end up paying for a membership for the entire year, despite using it only a handful of times.

No contract gym memberships, mean just that, they do not tie you into a 12 month contract.

Normally you pay a small joining fee and then pay via direct debit each month.

However, as soon as you realise you’re no longer using your membership, you can cancel.

No contract gym memberships are also often cheaper than gyms that tie you into a 12 month contract as the facilities tend to be more basic and most do not offer a swimming pool.

However, most, if not all of the gym chains listed below, include fitness classes in their memberships as well as access to personal trainers.

No contract gym memberships are also useful if your sole motivation for joining the gym is to get in shape for a specific reason such as an upcoming wedding or holiday.
