How Much Does an In-Shape Gym Membership Cost?

Written by: Staff

Dr. Mort Rothbard, a retired doctor at the time, transformed what used to be a racquetball club in Stockton, California, into a full-service health club.  At the time, Dr. Rothbard believed if people were in better shape, they could avoid many of the issues he witnessed at his practice.

From that day, the first, still thriving to this day, has been joined by more than 70+ other locations in California.

The reported In-Shape Gym membership costs

The costs of joining the In-Shape Gym all depends on the location you want to join and the promotion currently being held at the time.  Seeing the gym offers a variety of club levels — gold, platinum, diamond and double diamond — each gym, from what we researched, will have varying fees.  For the most part, however, the gold standard gyms will cost about $29 to $49 a month for single access and about to $25 to $55 a month for unlimited club access, meaning you can attend any gym with this membership option.  You can get official prices by inputting your zip code here and clicking on the location you want to join.

For example, at the time of this publishing, if you signed up for an autopay one-club membership and paid the $349 enrollment fee, your monthly dues would be $19.99 a month, a $20 savings.  This, however, was a promotion, so it’s unsure how long this rate would last if you were to sign up for a membership.

Lessons, clinics and leagues – The gym offers multiple lessons, clinics and leagues for swimming, tennis, racquetball and basketball, all for an additional charge.

Childcare – Third-party sources claim it can cost close to $10+ a month to add a child to your account for childcare.

Towel Service – Towels will not come as part of a membership package and will cost $1 each.
