I recently joined Fitness World in Kitsilano to add some cardio into my usual yoga routine. It’s great because they also offer group classes like yoga, aerobics, spin, pilates, etc. Watch out, however, because some ‘specialty classes’ are an additional fee on top of your monthly membership dues.
I had to sign on for 2 years and my membership works out to about $40/month. I live next door, so I have NO excuses not go to the gym!
Now called “Steve Nash Fitness World” because of their recent merger with the NBA star’s company, I can work out at any location around the city. They offer different membership packages, and if you pay a bit extra you can also go the Steve Nash Sports Clubs in either downtown Vancouver, Surrey, or Richmond.
Watch out for high pressure sales consultants who will try and persuade you to sign up right there on the spot. Ask for a trial pass to check out the club before you make the plunge on a membership. Remember, you’ll usually be locked in for 2 years, and will have to buy-out the membership if you want to cancel!
