UPDATE AS OF FEBRUARY 2 2019: One of our RV readers has reported that LocalFit has implemented a policy that will affect full-time RVers. In an email he states he received from LocalFit, he was told,
“Unfortunately, at this time we do not have a pricing model that is able to support usage for constant travelers with an undefined living address.
As a startup, we’re consistently working to better our model. Localfit was specifically developed as a low-cost solution for business travelers who periodically work away from home. It is not economically sustainable to support memberships for constant travelers without defined home addresses. Ultimately, if we allow these types of memberships we will have to raise prices drastically, which will take away from our intended purpose.”
We have not confirmed this with LocalFit, so to our full-timers, please contact the company directly before joining! We intend to reach out to the company and will report back when we learn more.
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.
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 frequently during 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!
