Are you going to get a Gym membership there Bob?

I heard that it is supposed to open on January 15th - doesn't look like it to me.

Is this a gym only for Rich people like Equinox?

"Rich people" ?? Really ?? Equinox costs $147/mo. That may be higher than other gyms, but that amount is hardly exclusively affordable to "rich people"

I hope you die soon or become poor.

Oh dear, 2:29, did you forget to take your meds again today?

$147 a month is insanely expensive by any measure.

I'll take $20 per month, please. $150 is not by any means affordable.

$147 is nuts. I can't afford that!

Anyone paying that much money for a gym is richer than most. Or is a fool with their money.

I think it depends on how important it is to you. I go to Equinox 4 or 5 days a week for 2 hours at a time, and I love it. I've been a member at WSC and S&H and Equinox is easily worth it to me over those gyms.

What does Equinox provide for 7-8 times the cost of a budget gym?

I join the rest in saying that $147 a month is insane. I pay $29 per month for Fitness First (I've been a member since it opened) and I can't possibly see what could make another gym worth FIVE TIMES as much as that.

Just another example of the fine art of separating fools from their money.

Which Gym around Bethesda has the most hot chicks?

For me, the location is key it's half a block from my home and even closer to my office. They have excellent/new equipment which they keep very well maintained and functional and upgraded, very clean facility, excellent layout, huge windows around the entire floor (not a cave), and probably equally as important as the location: it never gets so busy that I have to wait for more than 10 minutes for a squat rack (which is a function of price), even if I go during peak hours. I could go on but that covers the bulk of it....

Just to drive home the point about location: Equinox is 2 minutes away from me. I go there at least 15 days a month. If I went to a gym that's 12 minutes away from me (which is very generous), I'd spend 20 minutes a day getting there and back, or 5 hours a month. I bill my work out hourly. So in order to recoup the extra $130 that the gym costs me, I break even if my bill rate, factoring in taxes, is about $43/hr as a 1099. And that's just location. Forget about how much it costs me if I have to wait 35 minutes for a squat rack at Washington Sports.

So really location is what you are paying a premium for. If it was another brand at $20 you'd do that instead?

Anonymous said...

I get that sure, but to use your billing rate is a gross misunderstanding of opportunity cost.

@10:45 -- Yes, the location is key for me. It was a WSC before it became an Equinox and I was a member then as well. But as I mentioned, I also benefit from the fact that the cost keeps the place from getting too crowded. In turn, the savings in time is a net win for me. If I didn't live so close by, or if I wasn't there so often, or if I my training allowed me to swap out equipment (squat rack, benches, etc) with more flexibility, or if the gym was crowded despite its cost, then the cost/benefit would break down. As it is, and as it has been for the past few years, it makes much more sense for me to pay the extra $120 in exchange for the time it saves me. Time is money. And I am not rich.

Well if that's where you want to live and it's the only gym available right there and it costs $150 and you can afford it all - kudos to you. But it's still overpriced by any means.
