Great article... your info is spot on......I joined a (ladies only) gym that opened in the same building where I grocery shop three years ago....the price is good and it less than a 10 min. drive away.
They opened another ladies only 10 minutes away , at another building with a supermarket, taking the highway and another (co-ed) opened just a couple of minutes farther replacing one that saw the increased interest in these two. They offer a discount to additional family members paying through the same account. They offer incentives to encourage participation in the group classes but the fun we have is incentive enough.
There is more equipment at the co-ed and spin classes that aren't available at the ladies only. My membership gives me access to all three.
There is a gym located within a 10 minute walk but the fees are a lot higher. Co-ed and word has it most ladies don't like it......gawking men!!!
There is another within a 15 minute walk or 5 minute drive but the fees there are higher. It offers an eating plan that is expensive as well.
Less than 4 months ago another ladies gym in the city closed and I saw an immediate increase in our membeship.........They must be doing somethnig right.......
Thanks for a great article.
