Month-to-Month Gym Memberships: 29 Options Detailed (Fees, etc)

Many gyms offer a month-to-month payment option. Month-to-month memberships do not require you to sign a contract with the gym or maintain your membership for a set period of several months to one year. While you’ll still need to give notice to cancel your membership, you can cancel it or switch to a different gym at any time without paying fees for breaking a contract.

Note that if the gym you choose has an annual fee, you will pay it along with your initiation fee when you sign up. You won’t have a contract if you pay month-to-month, but you will owe your annual fee yearly for as long as you stay at the gym.

Below, we list the gyms that offer month-to-month membership options. To gather this information, we contacted each company’s customer service department.

We’ve Done the Comparing For You — Here’s What We Recommend

When choosing between month-to-month gyms, you’ll want to consider how much you’re willing to pay per month, what you’ll pay in sign-up and annual fees, and what amenities and access restrictions your membership will include.

If you only want to visit one local club and prefer solo workouts to classes, Planet Fitness offers the lowest monthly, initiation, and annual fees of any of the gyms we contacted. For a better idea of whether Planet Fitness is right for you, our previous research features the details on the Planet Fitness workout machines.

If you prefer to work out in a class-based environment, Orangetheory Fitness offers flexible packages (based on the number of classes per month) and has no initiation fee or annual fee. You can also use your Orangetheory Fitness membership at any location.

If you’re willing to pay more per month for amenities, Life Time offers all-club access for $80 per month. This includes access to workout machines, free weights, classes, saunas, steam rooms, and swimming pools. Find out more about Life Time’s amenities in our article on whether Life Time is worth the cost.
