I'm going to step on some toes here but that's okay; I want to start off by saying that this is not meant for the many exceptions that I know and see. There's a ton of hard working people at these locations that are insanely fit and I'm proud to say I know many of them. However, I often get the comment "what, you charge over a hundred dollars per month? My 24-Hour fitness membership was only $39." Figured I'll tell you why we and any other legit martial arts/CrossFit/Yoga Studio/Dance/Specialized anything charges a lot more.
Because when you sign up at LA Fitness or 24-Hour Fitness or whatever, you get ACCESS to a gym. That's it. It's up to you to USE it (except if you take classes of course).
Because if you have the worst form in the world, you will continue to have the worst form in the world, because you won't have a person there to tell you how to do things. Except if you're a hot girl. Then you will have 5 bros showing you proper technique without having to even request it - every time.
Because if you feel like giving 20% in the access gyms, you can give just 20%. Make it 15% - let's keep it real. No one is going to be there to call you out on your laziness.
Because if you go into this place and don't speak to someone, chances are you'll never speak to anyone. With us, you will make friends for life.
Because you can be on your cellphone and post selfies, whilst hashtagging "GymFlow" and "Gainz". If you step on our mat with a phone in your hand, we will kick you off it. We focus when we train.
Because I see people walking out of these places WITHOUT HAVING BROKEN A SWEAT! And don't give me the BS about "I don't sweat when I workout". Do you know why? Because you haven't worked out, that's why. Ever. You've been going to this place for 3 years and you haven't worked out - not a single time!
Because it is actually possible for you to have been going to this place regularly for 6 months and you haven't seen a positive transformation of your body.
Because you can go to these places for a year and feel like you haven't grown as a person.
So if you are not one of these self-motivated, hard-working, focused, self-driven, social individuals that have taken the time to study their craft and have gotten themselves or are getting themselves into shape, your access card to the fitness tools at this given location, is as useful as having a Tinder to just find friends.
That's why we don't charge $39.
