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.

Membership Rates via Credit Card:

6 Months 12 Months 18 Months
Joining Fee* P1,000 P1,000 P1,000
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
Joining Fee* P1,000 P1,000 P1,000
Key Fob Fee* P2,500 P2,500 P2,500
Monthly Due P2,700 x 6 P2,500 x 12 P2,300 x 18
Total Cash Out P19,700 P33,500 P44,900

 

  • *Note that the Key Fob and Joining Fees are one time payments

 

Membership Inclusions:

  • Unlimited use of gym facilities
  • Unlimited group classes except for the Krav Maga group class which entails additional payment per session
  • Free 1 PT session

 

Notes:

  • 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.

 

They have two types of gyms: Premium and Platinum. Premium is their regular or standard club while Platinum is their high-end club.

Gold’s Gym

There is something about Gold’s Gym that lures a lot of gym goers.

Celebrities!

Yes, that’s true. We see Gold’s Gym in our favorite actor’s Instagram stories and we just can’t help not to be drawn to the gym.

 

But putting celebrities aside, Gold’s Gym is a great gym to sign-up to and here are their current rates for 2018.

Slimmers World

Before Fitness First, Anytime Fitness and Gold’s Gym became popular, there was Slimmers World.

 

They have been in existence for as long as I could remember and while their branches are not usually in the prime locations, you may want to consider enrolling with them if there is a branch near you for they offer gym memberships at very affordable prices.

Call it a cult or whatever you want, but Crossfit is fast-becoming an elite circle of fitness enthusiasts.

360 Fitness Club

When you hear the tagline “Complete the Circuit”, you know for sure that the slogan comes from 360 Fitness Club.

As you enter a 360 Fitness Club, you will instantly notice that they have significantly lesser equipment compared to standard gyms. That’s because they focus on circuit training and they believe that exercises should simulate natural movements that workout all of your muscle groups.

I feel harassed at Slimmers World, every time my consultant sees me, there’s always a promotion I m being offered. They have a sales quota, even therapists have monthly sales quota. I know each and every therapists’ family problems. I guess it’s their way of making me buy. I have lifetime membership with them but I don’t go there anymore.

Dee – sad to hear. Fitness First trainers were like that many years ago. Good thing they no longer do it anymore.

TA October 9, 2019 - 9:02 pm

can you transfer memberships, or buy one secretly from other members that don’t want to go anymore? I would pay for a lifetime membership to some of the clubs. But the prices and sales tactics are hard to take now.

Reply
Chris October 10, 2019 - 10:11 am

I actually have two extra vouchers for Slimmers World (6 months membership each). I am selling the two for 8,000 Pesos only (equivalent to one year, originally priced at 12,000 Pesos)

The membership is valid for 1 branch only BUT any branch of your choice where you will sign up.

Let me know if you might be interested.

I just inquired at slimmers world and they said that its 48000 for a year and since its buy 1 take 1 it becomes 48000 for 2 years, however, they said that they have 65% off so it goes down to 16700 for 2 years. I’m also informed that they have a lifetime membership fee of 100000 but they give me a discount so the price goes down to 47000 which is still expensive. I’m just confused why your price rates and theirs are totally different?

Reply
Chris February 11, 2018 - 1:35 am

Jan – it’s possible that they have changed the pricing scheme since we asked them or probably, prices differ depending on the sales consultant.

Reply
Tony February 16, 2018 - 11:17 pm

I go to Slimmers World. The earlier poster was true. They only see you when it’s time to renew your contract or if they want you to go lifetime. Nakakaplastic. Plus, I wish the gym instructors are ready to help.

Steph / Irene – I personally recommend Anytime Fitness. It’s a bit cheaper (you can get it for as low as 2,000 Pesos monthly membership if there is a promo) and it is 24/7. Plus they have so many branches.

Donna April 23, 2018 - 1:29 pm

Hi! In Anytime Fitness, If I don’t have a credit card, do I have to pay straight for the whole year and not every month? And do you happen to know how much are the rates at their Araneta Cubao branch? Thanks in advance!

I was offered with lifetime mem with Slimmers World since they are in soft opening promo. 47k all in from 100k til end of May this year. Was there any promo like this before? Baka kasi marketing scheme lang nila.

I’m wondering baka 47k is the legit price talaga nila for lifetime and sinasabi lang na 100k pag reg. Thanks sa makapag share ng thoughts!

In Anytime Fitness, careful with your credit card. Before I took their membership, I asked what if I got pregnant they say they will hold your membership. So I grab. I paid with 2 months advance payment. In 2 weeks,January I discovered and declared to them that I am pregnant. They said, It is already on hold, starting February. When I got billed on March, I asked my home gym why there is a charge, 3 months only is allowed to hold. I told them to cancelled my membership, but they offer me to transfer and they will hold this membership until August until I can find someone to transfer. April, I stil have my bill. All their offer, has been vanished. and it gives me so much inconvenience. I am paying those months that I haven’t used.
