As a member of this gym it is important that you understand what your membership pays for. Different gyms have different rates, and I sometimes hear people inquiring about our membership rates and comparing them to rates from other gyms. As with any purchase, you get what you pay for. So what are you paying for? 3-6 one-hour fitness classes per week? The answer to that question is no. In fact, classes at the gym are free. So what does the membership actually pay for? It pays for the business.

Your memberships pay for the gym to operate and give the best customer experience to our members as possible. This includes but is not limited to: rent, building insurance, insurance for the business, facility maintenance, garbage fees, water charges, electricity, heating, equipment and equipment maintenance, equipment purchases, coaches’ salaries, member services, and CrossFit affiliation fees. All of these things are necessary to keep the gym running and providing the very best service to you as members. Remember, every CrossFit gym is owned and operated differently, so the maintenance of these businesses and facilities vary from gym to gym. The programming at each gym is different, the coaching is different and the upkeep of the building is different. The important thing to keep in mind is that you get what you pay for.
The next time someone asks you how much you pay for your classes at the gym, tell them that the classes are free, but there is a fee to be a member of the gym. Tell them about your experience. Tell them how clean the facility is and how great the coaching and programing is. That is what the membership pays for. If you see the value of being a member of the gym and the community, share that passion and experience with others who may be curious. You are not just paying for fitness classes or workouts. You are paying for the experience and you are investing in your health. Your membership is what keeps the gym going and we hope that you see the same value that we see in you as a member.
