I'm not sure if this has been posted yet. This is a wonderful deal for those thinking about changing gyms or if your yearly membership is almost up.
Since I don't have 50 or greater posts I am unable to post a link to the site so you're going to have to go to Google and search for "24hour fitness Costco"
I used to go to LA Fitness at $279 per year renewal, but once I saw this deal through costco I switched to 24hours. Theres no signup fee, no monthly payments nothing. Just straight $299 for two whole years. You purchase the gift certificate online and it arrives in about a week. Then you take it to your local 24 hours place and they sign you up on the spot. It's easy.
The only thing is you need a Costco membership. No big deal though the costco club card can be had for like $60 or so I believe.
This membership allows you to go to any 24hour fitness in the United States up to the Sport Level. Sport level is pretty much on the same quality level as LA fitness.
The levels are as follows:
Active/Express: These ones are just barebone. They have a weight room and a cardio area plus space to do stretches/aerobics. The one I go to has two squat racks, 1 power rack, four bench press machines, two dip bars and two areas to do pullups(non assisted). They also have other type of machine weights like smith machines and tricep stuff. Plenty of dumbells and benches. Sauna is also available here.
Sport: Same thing, but they have a pool and basketball court(i believe). Also has more rows of cardio machine and generally is a bit nicer than active.
Super Sport: I don't know never been here since my membership doesn't allow it. But I hear they have rock climbing, tanning rooms and all kinds of other gay ****.
Ultra Sport: Same as super sport but even gayer.
The downside to these fitness clubs is that chalk is not allowed and there aren't any olympic lifting platforms.
The upside about these fitness clubs is the squat rack/power racks are almost always empty except for people doing traps work and curls there sometimes. It is also opened 24 hours too and the place is generally pretty well kept.
Oh and by the way, I don't work for 24 hours I just lift weights there.
