So I saw an add on Facebook for a local gym about doing insanity as a group. They stated it would cost $45.50 a month but it is 6 days a week. I was like ok I can do that. I kept reading and disappointment sets in.
You also have to pay an additional cost of $35.00 a month for the gym membership. So I commented so your saying in order to do this insanity program you have to pay $80.50 a month? In a nut shell their response was pretty much yes but you get to also use all the gym equipment during the hours of 1pm-9pm(that's the only time they are open) The price is a lot but it helps people be successful when they do it as a group. Plus the DVD program is pricey. I said but what about the people that don't need the gym (my apartment has a full gym that is 24 hours) and I have the DVDs but I live in an upstairs apartment so I can't do them. So I would really like to do this group thing. Their response "we can't help you. sorry. good luck"
Don't get me wrong I wouldn't mind paying to do this.
My husband was laughing at me and making fun of me because I was getting flustered. Here is my reasoning:
1. Why are you charging more for the insanity than your own gym? $35 for the gym and $45.50 for the class. (they say the DVDs cost a lot) Which brings me to my next issue.
2. Why pay $80.50 a month to do it when you can get the DVDs for $90-100 (sometimes cheaper) and you can do it as long as you want?
3. Why would you want to use the rest of the gym when the insanity would be 6 days a week and that kicks your @$$ as is.
4. You know you are over charging if you say well we can't help you and delete my questions. I can't even find the post anymore.
I didn't mean for my questions to sound ugly when asking about why it was so much. I guess I could of worded it better.
That brings me to why I'm disappointed. I thought it was a great idea and would totally do it but I think it is over priced. This is an extremely small town and I do not see many people paying $80 for a class but good for them if they have a good turn out. I would of been all for paying the $45.50 and doing it but being forced to pay for a gym I would use is different. This town is nothing but miners the work 12 hour shift work. I do not know how they expect to get business if they are only open during those hours. The gym doesn't look like it has a lot of equipment. Maybe it's the city girl in me where I been to a 24 fitness and planet fitness. The gyms are fully stocked, you could go at anytime, and not have to pay extra for a class.
Let me know what your thoughts are? Am I just crazy or do you think $80.50 a month is a good deal?
