13 Gyms With Family Memberships: Costs, Restrictions Detailed

Many gyms offer family discounts or joint memberships for two people. Typically, the discounts are a percentage or dollar amount off of the additional memberships or initiation fees. Some gyms require joint and family members to reside at the same address, while others don’t. Clubs will either offer access only to the club where you signed up or multiple locations. For details of the family memberships available at each gym (plus the list of gyms that don’t offer family memberships), see below.

When considering a gym membership for your family, the cost will likely be a major factor. The best-priced options are Workout Anytime and the YMCA; Workout Anytime costs about $50 for a family of three, and the YMCA offers family memberships for about $70 per month.

The location, facilities, and amenities are also important to consider. Life Time offers many amenities (including child care and activities for children too young to use the gym), but at a higher membership cost; our related research explains whether Life Time is worth the cost.
