Which Gym Chains ARE NOT open 24/7?

Some other well-known gym chains that ARE NOT open 24/7 include Virgin Active, Crunch Fitness, Fitness First, Body Fit Training and F45 Training.

COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH 24/7 ACCESS

When joining a 24 hour gym, you will typically need to pay for an access pass/key which allows you to enter the facility during non-staffed hours.

The cost for this pass varies from free to $99 and in most cases it is non-refundable once membership ceases. In many cases, the general sign up fees associated with joining your particular gym will cover the cost of the access pass, but not always. 

Gyms also have very hefty financial penalties for letting non-members into the facility with your access card during non-staffed hours. The bottom line – just don’t risk it.

BENEFITS OF 24 HOUR GYMS

Snap Fitness is a North American gym chain founded in 2003 and has since grown to over 2000 clubs across the world and over 200 in Australia alone.

Snap are all about offering an affordable gym membership that allows you to work out at any time without having to pay for all the bells and whistles that other clubs charge a premium for.

Each Snap Fitness Club has the basic facilities and equipment you need to make a great start on your fitness journey.

LIMITATIONS OF 24 HOUR GYMS

Although 24/7 gyms certainly have their perks, there are a few downfalls to consider.

Most 24/7 gyms are quite limited in space and equipment. This means that during peak times of the day, it gets extremely busy and crowded. Unfortunately, most 24/7 gyms do not offer group fitness classes, such as yoga, pilates, HIIT, etc.

All Zap Fitness locations are open 24/7 and their sign up fee is $69, which includes your 24 hour access pass.

Some limitations that Zap Fitness have are:

✗ Zap Fitness facilities are very tightly packed and have limited equipment.

✗ The cheap price tag will also mean it gets pretty busy during the peak periods of the day, however, there is more than enough value here to kick-start your fitness journey.

Maximum Price: $24.95 per week

Other Costs: $59 for access pass

Most Club Lime locations are open 24/7 – make sure you check your local club to see whether they have the access you require. You’ll also need to pay $59 when signing up for your all hours access pass.

Some limitations Club Lime have are:

✗ If you’re hoping to visit multiple Club Lime locations, your membership fees will be substantially more than for single club access.

Some limitations Jetts Fitness have are:

✗ The equipment is limited and the clubs are very small in space, meaning it gets very busy and congested during peak times of the day.

Limitations of Plus Fitness include:

✗ The sign up fee is between $78 – $128, which is a little pricey, especially if you’re only signing up for a short period of time.

✗ Plus Fitness are very limited in their group fitness offerings. Occasionally, a club my offer very basic classes, but they aren’t a patch on other gym chains’ offerings.

Anytime was the first gym chain to lead the charge with offering the ability to train 24/7 which lead to their extreme success. 

Some limitations Anytime have include:

✗ Most Anytime gyms we have visited have been pretty small in size and have a large number of members, which means it can get fairly crowded during peak times. 

✗ Anytime are very limited in their group fitness offerings. Occasionally, a club my offer very basic classes, but they aren’t a patch on other gym chains’ offerings.

✗ In most cases, you’ll need to pay the $99.00 sign up fee + $69.95 for your access pass, which is a big upfront cost and may put some new members off.

✗ During your first month of membership, you’ll only have access to your home club. This may be frustrating for those who want to go on a last minute trip and sign up for their gyms while they travel.

Anytime Fitness

good life health clubs

Minimum Price: $17.99 per week

Maximum Price: $27.99

Other Costs: $99.00 sign up fee

Some limitations Goodlife have are:

✗ We have seen a few issues with members struggling to cancel their memberships and have had bad experiences with customer service. Oftentimes, this is because they haven’t read their contract correctly. Make sure you have a thorough understanding of what your contract entails before signing.

✗ Unless you’re committing to a long term contract, Goodlife prices can really start to add up for pay as you go options, with some sources quoting $22.95 per week for membership.

✗ Goodlife are ‘hyper-vigilent’ with signing up members, so keep in mind that if you give them your contact details, you will be followed up and contacted quite thoroughly in an attempt to get you to join.
