Free online workouts to use while we are Safer-at-Home, and gym memberships may save you money once it is safe to return!
Cleaning out my
closet office yesterday, I came across a little card advertising $25 per month gym memberships. I wasn’t particularly interested, but I thought I should do a smidge of research to see whether I wanted to write about it in the future. I discovered that in addition to the discounted gym membership program, Active & Fit also offers free online workouts, just perfect for our current home exercise situation.
Free Online Workouts
Signing up for access to the free online classes was easy. Over 200 available free online workouts are grouped into “Mind and Body,” “Strength and Tone,” and “Cardio and Dance.” There are classes of all lengths, from 20 minutes to over an hour. There is a huge variety of instructors.
We’re happy with the gym to which we currently belong, but I did some searching just to see what they have to offer. Our preferred gym is not included, but there were quite a few gyms within 10 miles. If you have a specific gym, this may not help.
I have not signed up, so I can’t report on how well it works. The directions say that you pay $75 upfront for an enrollment fee, the rest of the current month, and the next month’s membership, then $25 per month. There is no contract, and you can use it at any of the locations in the program. That might be a benefit if you travel a lot, or just visit your parents somewhere away from your regular gym, or need a gym for a month or two.
However, you need to do a little comparison shopping. Some of the gyms listed are less than $25 per month regularly. And the price is per person, so a family membership might be cheaper.
Not every military installation has an accessible or comfortable gym, and not every person wants to work out on base. A low-cost, off-base gym membership might be just the thing, and who doesn’t love free online workout classes? Check out Active & Fit Direct and see if it might be a good choice for you.
