Secrets of Success

Free Week Trial Passes, Free Day Passes, Free Workouts, Etc.



ALWAYS SAY YES to offers for "A free week" or "A free trial period" or "A free day pass" at a fitness center, gym or club!! Those offers are a fantastic chance to shake up your workout, freshen up your exercise routine and try different pieces of cardio or weight equipment you might not have known about. Even if you have to endure a sales pitch and have no intention to join that gym, it's a small price to pay for some otherwise FREE "zing" in your fitness routine!

More Information:

Last year, when my gym membership ran out and I couldn't afford to renew it, I gathered up "Try us free for a week!" offers from at least 10 local fitness centers, and literally was able to work out at all different places around town for 2 months, for nothing! It was so fun -- and totally legal!

  • Maybe I'll take the free week they're offering me at Curves!!! - by JANIEWWJD
  • If you're not easily suggestible and have no preferences as to style of yoga, it can work for yoga too (deep discounts for new students, second class free, all you can take in 15 days for $15 type thing) you have to pretend you are looking for something else because some yogis are deeply spiritual and can draw you in with their patter and staredowns, etc. The best advice I could give you for preferably a gym, etc., is: KEEP A VERY LOW PROFILE. DO NOT TAKE A CLASS. DON'T SPEND MUCH TIME IN THE JACUZZI. Sales pitch or not, they have much less to grab onto if you are a fleeting, moving target. No joke, and I'm not being paranoid.

  • Oh so true. I plan to take up a few of these on my vacation to mix it up a bit plus take some classes at my local Y. - by LADYJ6942
