Someone has finally, FINALLY created a national gym membership for travelers!
We’ve already joined and tested it out, and we give all the details about the program in our video; link above. GO WATCH!
“I Don’t Want To Watch, Just Tell Me What It Is!”
In a nutshell, Localfit is a new type of gym membership program where you get access to not just ONE gym chain, but multiple chains and gyms… almost 6,000 gyms nationwide, all for $15 a month. There’s a wide variety of gym options including specialty studios like yoga and boxing.
We’ve never endorsed a gym membership before. There just hasn’t been one out there that stood out as the best fit for travelers, and we don’t like the idea of being locked in to one chain… way too limiting. So this is a big deal for us to stand here before you officially endorsing Localfit. THAT’S how much we believe in this program. Since we’ve agreed to become Localfit ambassadors, anyone who signs up through us gets themselves an extra free month and gets us a credit (so thanks for your support!).
There ARE some restrictions though, and we go over all those in the video, so please do watch. The biggest one is that you can only go to the SAME gym in a month up to 5 times. That doesn’t mean you can only go to the gym 5 times! You can still go to gyms every single day of the month… just not the same gym, only 5 days. And as for any hidden fees, the only extra thing we had to pay for was a few bucks for the Localfit credit card that comes in the mail. That’s IT. Plus it’s a “cancel anytime” thing, which my commitment-phobe nature especially likes.
FUN STORY: When I was first investigating Localfit, I immediately honed in on the gym my daughter attends in Salt Lake City… a very swanky Lifetime Fitness with an expensive monthly membership. I’ve forked over the $25 day pass many times to attend with her in the past; she loves when I go with her and swap the “mom” hat for my “personal trainer” one. I was SO excited to find her gym covered by Localfit! So, last week when we were back in Salt Lake visiting the fam, I got to use my Localfit credit card and attend with her. What normally costs me $25 per day was free with my $15 per month Localfit membership. (Can’t help but wonder, how are they making money?!?!)
SO anyways…. There you have it; the whole lowdown on Localfit. It’ll be a great way to keep fit-focused when you’re traveling. And since our work here on FitRV is all about promoting a healthy RV lifestyle, I cannot think of a better way to spend $15 bucks a month than on your health. GO JOIN!
