Thank you so much OP! I was considering the $24/month membership "plan", but this one is so much more enticing.

Is this for Sports?? or active sports??


spica said: [Q]24-hour fitness offers the deal of $750 for the first 3 years, including 5 sessions with a trainer. The fourth and subsequent years will be $50 per year. There's no initiation or processing fee. If budget isn't an issue, this is quite a deal.

First 3 years - $20.83 per month
After 3 years - $ 4.17 per month

It's for Sport and can be used at other clubs, except the exclusive ones such as Ultra Sport.

Is this available in all areas? Or is it local one area (like California)?

Is it an online deal?
Can you post the Link?

What fitness center are you talking about? Where?


I'm in Southern California and called the Irvine Spectrum as well as the Irvine one. They have the same deal. It's not on their website, therefore i can't provide a link. Sorry. You'd have to call your local. Please report back on what you find.

Thanks.

Nice post, OP!

Why would anyone flag this red? A personal dislike for 24-Hour Fatness (pun intended) could be understandable, but this is still a "hot deal," and appropriately posted, IMHO.

If this applies FITNESS SPORT CLUBS, as stated, it's a very enticing deal! Particularly if you live near one and plan on living near one.

I've been a member since 1982 or 1983. Mine is $6/mo. (cannot recall my membership amount, but I'm thinking several hundred), which I thought was awesome, but this would have been even better (especially factoring in inflation and how much I've paid over the years).

The company's strong and not going anywhere...

So, I'll call a friend of mine at 24-Hour Fatness Corporate who's high on the food chain and see if I can get info for you folks...

I just signed up two weeks ago when they were offering $650/$49. (No training sessions.)

This is still sort of a good deal...if you're comparing it to their "regular" price of $900+ for 3 years.

Thanks for the heads up, OP.



I really don't pay attention to the rating system. All I want is to be able to share with the rest of the community and get some insight on how attractive this deal really is. If they don't like it, they don't have to read it. I realize it's a lot of money to dish out up front. But it's a great deal in the long run.

Thanks for the support and please with us what you find out from your hot-shot friend at Corporate.

Unfortunately, the deal you're referring to expired last Friday. They raised it to $700/$49. Great deal otherwise.

Just spoke with my buddy.

He said it's "unadvertised" and there is no guarantee for how long it will last, etc. He surmised that a sales rep might have posted this, but I didn't suspect so.

He also wasn't wild about it getting posted because he felt it gives people too much leverage to negotiate after the deals are terminated.

I'd say if you're in the market, jump on it--it's their slower season. New Year's resolutions are #1, obviously. During summer people workout outdoors more (but there is some merit to the bathing suit anticipation season now, too).

You may even be able to negotiate out the 5 trainer sessions and grab the $650/$49 if you push hard enough. It's a bit like car sales, if they think you'll walk, you may get what you want!

Hope that helps.

This is a good deal, but just to put this in perspective, a few years back they were offering closer to $550/3yrs + $20/annual. So there is more bargaining room yet.

[Q]It's for Sport and can be used at other clubs, except the exclusive ones such as Ultra Sport.
Can you give me the location in So Cal and perhaps the sales guys name? I'm in No Cal and trying to negotiate a deal for Super Sport because there are no Sport near me. The Super Sport is only 10 min away.

I think those days are long gone....especially after 24HF was bought out by another company a year or two ago.

I had been waiting forever for a similar deal, but finally just joined at $650/$49 after I noticed a pot belly forming where my once tight abs used to be <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif" border=0>

Thanks OP. Signed up with Wify today. Wify got $80 discount

Fees and charges breakdown as follows:

Initiation fee: $29
Club membership prepad: $341.82
Processing fee: 79.99
Nutri-kit: 50.00
Subtotal: 500.81

Fitness training: 249.00
Total: 749.81

Anyone notice the the Club Membership Agreement and Fitness Training Agreement are separate and seemingly independent contracts. Any chance of cancelling the fitness training (within 5 days) while keeping the club membership, effectively saving $250?

uh.... Would someone explain the nutri-kit? Is it a of meal planner or something?

That's sounds like a decent deal. Especially if you KNOW that you will get use of it. We pay around $300/yr and it's an average club but it has incl raquetball,classes, kid care and a pool. Make sure that if you move you can transfer to another 24hf. What's the membership classification called? The sports ultra? The 2nd floor cardio area has a rotten smell and it is hot up there.... which makes those 6 mile treadmillfests s*ck. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif" border=0>

Sorry for a "dumb" question, but do they charge tax after the total?

not to threadcrap but this is nothing new and it isn't the best you can do. do some searches on this forum and you'll find similiar and even better past deals. these "three years upfront and low annual renewal afterwards" deals been going on for years so don't believe the "limited time only" talk.

i've been a 24 hr fitness member for over 3 years now and i've talked to a lot of members about what they pay and a 24 hr fitness salesrep. the best i've heard of in california is $500 for the first three years and $20/year afterwards. if you're in portland, oregon i know of two ppl in that area who were able to get $5/year renewal fees after the first 3 years. that's unheard of in cali though.

note: unless you're a master negotiator you'll probably end up paying more than what i just listed - the salesreps (and everyone above them in the pyramid-esque comission scheme) gotta make money too . . .

edited to remove info that may give away who the salesrep i know is. don't want him getting in trouble.

w/ all do respect to your friend - these types of deals have been going on for years. you just have to know to ask for it. i got a similiar deal over 3 years ago ($609 first three years + $49/year afterwards w/ some initial training sessions) and ppl have been getting them ever since.

i'm friends w/ a salesrep at 24 hr fitness and he broke down the entire comission structure for me. these long term deals were the most lucrative for salesreps but the hardest sales to make bec. most ppl didn't want to commit for that long. however, the comission structure recently changed to put more emphasis on renewal fees and less on upfront fees and i don't know if the "long-term deals are the most profitable" statement still holds true.

I haven't opened mine yet, but I think you are right. It basically a starter kit with meal planner, other literature, and supplement samples.

I wasn't charged any tax

Jumped on the bandwagon. The rep said it was only for Cinco De Mayo. Complete BS as they were issueing this $750 deal to everyone. New member at Chino Hills.

you wanna explain the negs woonwoon?

i had some of the most informative posts in this thread:
- told ppl the lowest prices to expect to give ppl a baseline in negotiating.
- explained that this is an ongoing thing that's been happening for years so ppl don't feel the need to jump on it when they may not yet be ready or sure they can commit to three years.
- reported the recent change in emphasis of the comission structure to help ppl in negotiating.

This is the same deal I got at the Milpitas, CA location. It's essentially $500/3 years with the required purchase of 5 training sessions (which are normally $50 each).

I'm moving to an area with a Super Sport and Sport club. I'm interested in signing up for the Super Sport club. What sort of deal have people gotten? Is it area dependent?

Thank you so much OP! I was considering the $24/month membership "plan", but this one is so much more enticing.
