Should I join a gym for a longer time if it´s cheaper?

Long-Term Membership

Finding a gym is a decision where a problem with commitment is actually good. In general, it's probably best not to buy a membership at a gym for more than a year or two. The gym may change or a better one may open closer to you. Be suspicious of "lifetime memberships" unless you think it's a really good deal. Keep your gym selection options open.

Sometimes you can get an "all Club" membership. This allows you to be able to go to any location of the clubs. And you get really good deals when you sign up with a long term commitment.

membership in a gym... Ever try using one after work in January, February, March, or April? Take a number and wait. The clubs sell more memberships than they have capacity to service during those 'new years resolution months'.
