The Benefit of Low-Cost Health Clubs

It’s obvious that low-cost health clubs save you money compared to their pricier counterparts, but not everyone knows that these health clubs are also a better financial choice than exercising outside of a gym all together. When you look at long-term savings, it becomes clear that a low-cost health club is the best way to stay in shape without spending a fortune.

One way to save is by going to a low-cost health club instead of buying the equipment for a home gym. Think of the cost of cardio equipment alone. New treadmills can cost anywhere from $1,000 to $4,000. You’ll definitely want to shell out the money for a prime treadmill, too. Fred Waters, who worked in the treadmill industry and now reviews treadmills, advises starting somewhere in the $1,000 range to assure that your treadmill will be able to withstand regular use. That’s $1,000 at the very cheapest, and that equates to roughly five years of membership at Work Out World.

And in that five years, you’ll be using more than just the treadmill. A full-body workout includes strength and resistance equipment too. When you decide to add in dumbbells, weight machines, free weights, a bench, and so on, you’re racking up quite a bill. Especially if you don’t know how committed you’ll stay to your workout plan, this is a huge investment for the average person. Work Out World, however, offers a monthly membership of $10 with no commitment, which is a lot easier on your wallet than investing in a bunch of machines and hoping you’ll stick with them for years to come.

Group classes are another area in which you can save a ton by joining a health club. Switching up your exercise routine to try new and different activities can help you to reach new muscle groups and make sure your whole body is being constantly challenged. And what better way to do that than to try a class? But fitness classes are notoriously expensive on their own. A yoga class, for example, will typically run you $10 to $20 per class. At Work Out World, yoga classes are just part of your monthly package. Even if you only went to yoga 4 times a month, taking a Group X class would save you $30 minimum compared to taking outside classes.

If you’re thinking about getting in shape and want to make the best possible long-term financial decision, absolutely consider a low-cost health club. Work Out World provides everything you need for fitness—equipment, training, and more—and for only $10 a month as opposed to thousands of dollars.

What to Eat After a Workout


Boost the Fat-Burning Potential of Your Workout with These Tips

Making it to your health club is sometimes the most difficult part of the fitness routine, but it is important to remember that high-intensity workouts are crucial when trying to burn fat. Alternating between high- and low-intensity levels taps into more fat stores so you burn more total calories. This also causes your metabolism to function at a higher level, so you’ll continue to burn fat for hours after your workout.

Cardio alone may seem like enough, but it is important to incorporate strength training into your fitness routine. Like interval training, lifting weights also taps into more fat stores, which means you burn more calories. Strength training also allows you to focus on specific muscles, leading to a more sculpted and toned physique.
