Saving money and shopping smarter in Augusta

Health Club Discounts

Several local health clubs have discounts to help you to fulfill your New Year’s resolutions to meet your fitness goals in 2010.

At the Family Y, new members will get half off the joiner’s fee through January. This equals savings of $75 to $100, depending on whether you get an individual or a family plan.

The Family Y doesn’t require contracts, according to an employee. The fitness center also has discounts for seniors (62 or older). For access to all Family Y branches, seniors can pay $32 for an individual and $48 for a couple.

The Augusta area has seven Family Y’s: Augusta on Wheeler, Tobacco and Milledgeville roads; Thomson; Evans; North Augusta; and Aiken.

Health Central Wellness & Fitness Center on Broad Street is waiving its enrollment fee through January when people sign a one-year contract. The enrollment fee is usually $69 or $99, depending on corporate or individual membership.

Gold’s Gym in North Augusta and Aiken is offering membership for $19.99 a month. No contracts are required. The offer lasts through January.

Anytime Fitness is giving customers 25 percent off its memberships. The gym is reducing its enrollment fee by half through this month. In total, a member could save more than $100 on a 12-month membership.

The health club has three-month to 15-month memberships. Prices start at $30. The membership provides access to Anytime Fitness’ 1,300 gyms nationwide and a Web site that enables customers to track their fitness and nutritional needs.

If you read this, you need to do a retraction as you are helping Gold's Gym in North Augusta with false advertising. 

 That $19 a month is only if you pay $250 upfront.
