Happy New Year!

I would make a bet that one of your New Year’s resolutions has something to do with losing weight or getting into fitness. Even Twitter says that the most trending resolution for 2018 has something to do with exercise.

That being said, we here on Pinoy Guy Guide, made a thorough research on the most popular gyms and fitness clubs in the country to help you achieve your fitness goals this year.

In this blog post, I showcase the membership details and club rates of the top gyms in the country which include Anytime Fitness, Fitness First, Gold’s Gym, Slimmers World, Crossfit Manila and 360 Fitness Club. Note however that prices may change without prior notice.

 

Anytime Fitness

I first wrote about Anytime Fitness back in 2015 and in just a couple of years, it has grown to be one of the biggest health clubs in the Philippines.

 

Their 24/7 operating hours and global reach is very attractive to gym goers so if you are contemplating to join their network of health clubs, here are their current rates.

Key Fob Fee* P2,500 P2,500 P2,500
Monthly Due P2,700 P2,500 P2,300
Total Initial Payment upon joining P6,200 P6,000 P5,800

 

  • Auto-debit of the monthly due via credit card for the subsequent months
  • *Note that the Key Fob and Joining Fees are one time payments

 

Membership Rates via Cash:

6 Months 12 Months 18 Months

  • For the first month, member can only access his home gym where he signed up. After the first month, member can access any gym worldwide.
  • Key Fob is the small device tag (similar to an ID badge) that you tap on the door of the gym for it to open. You need to bring this with you every time you go to the gym to gain entry.
  • If member decides to extend beyond the number of months he originally signed-up for, there would be no need to pay the key fob fee and joining fee again.
  • Branches which are on pre-selling promo have lower monthly dues for the first year (around P2,000 per month).

 

Fitness First

Despite having a few of their branches close in the last few years for reasons we don’t know, Fitness First remains to be one of the top gyms in the country.

With spacious gyms, world-class facilities and topnotch equipment, Fitness First is still the gym to beat and is one of the top choices among fitness enthusiasts.
