How much does a Seattle Athletic Club membership cost?

The costs of joining the Seattle Atheltic Club, as with other gyms, will greatly depend on the type of membership you’re looking to sign up for.   From our research, an individual membership average is close to $125+ a month, whereas a couples membership can be closer to $175.  These are all estimates we received from members and can greatly vary depending on the discounts available via an employer, for example, and the current promotion currently going on.  The one-time initiation joining fee, just like the membership, can vary from as little as a few dollars during a special promotion to as much as $200 to $450+ from what we saw as well.  To make things easier, we broke up the estimates we found in the table below:

NOTE:  Use these numbers as an estimate ONLY as prices will change and we can’t confirm.  The club will be more than happy to offer you an exact estimate as everyone’s situation can vary with discounts and promotions.  These are the estimates for both the downtown and Northgate location.
