    I'm going home for Christmas break for a month so I need to find a gym that I can get a 1 month membership for. Gold's Gym is the closest one to my house, but they won't tell me the price over the phone, I have to go to the actual gym to find out. Since I'm still at school over 3 hours away, I can't go. Anyone have any idea what they charge for just one month? If it matters, its the Silver Spring, MD location.

    I know at my place, its 15 bucks a visit or 10 a visit if you're there with a member. I think a 3 month thing over summer was 200 bucks, but I have no idea if they even do a single month thing.

    If it helps any my membership is $30/month and allows access to any Gold's Gym in the US.

    I'm in a similar situation. The closest to me is 24 fitness. Anyone know if they'll let me sign up for a month w/o contract or a large registration fee?

    The Gold's by me requires a signing fee, then monthly fees. Just find someone you know who has a membership and pay $10 a visit.

    The Gold's I go to in downtown Baltimore charges a $169 signup fee and I think was $35/month. The student special I got was a 14 month flat fee which basically equated to no signup fee and $29/month.

    24 hr is pretty bad. One I tried to go to asked for a residency card before you can get a guest pass.

    I used to work at a 24 hour fitness selling memberships. as far as 24 is concerned every weekend they have weekend specials and then monday mornings or afternoons they have some online specials, might be worth it to check it out. they wont give you prices over the phone because they want you in the club to get you to sign up, at 24 you can negotiate prices a little. keep saying its to much.

    look in the phone book for smaller gyms...less equipment, but more likely to be able to do something for just 1 month...i think i paid $50 for 1 month at this small hole in the wall gym when i was home on break

    golds here closed, but before it did it was 35/mo with a minimum 3 month contract. no signup fee. not bad really considering the fagmo yuppie gym I go to now (it's the only one near me, but my jui jitsu place is opening a gym for members next month :wiggle: ) charges like 85 a month.... it's recockulous.

    Just got back from Gold's and they said 1 month is $69. THats kinda expensive but the gym was sooo nice. I guess it's worth it.
