i'm a mbr currently at nash and have been a mbr at sportscentral before

i'd probably stick w/ sportscentral seeing as its 24 hrs, less crowded, cheaper

things to consider w/ nash is the access you will have to all the fitness world locations (i believe one of the vancouver ones is 24 hrs too)... nash has newer equipment, cleaner, well maintained.

if you like a gym that has a wide range of fitness equipment at your disposal and a pool and sauna/steamroom then nash if your ticket

but if your going to the gym just to lift heavy and get truly huge i don't see a real big difference in what nash has to offer... sportscentral has all the you'll need to get big and strong

This is what you do...if ur interested. Do the one week trial. Afterwards, they will be calling you to sign up for a monthly. Then you tell them no because you have a friend that has a corporate rate, so its not really the gym that you are shopping for. If they bite, they will offer you the corporate rate, but still would want you to pay the enrollment fee (not telling you). Then you tell em that they didn't pay the enrollement fee either.

correct, basically student/corp/law enforcement/military... w/e other category you can lump yourself into will get you the "corporate discount"

they have staff working strictly in sales so there is room to wheel and deal

do what raybot said w/ signing up for a free wk pass, and then make the sales staff earn your sign up!

i did $99 initiation and then $588 ppd for 22 mos.
also got 3 personal training sessions tacked on and a free month for the tennis part of the club (would've preferred a deeper discount on my rate but i was done negotiating)

curious as to what everyone else is paying?
any idea how to get them to offer this again?

so basically $27 a month

ok here's an update. i went to fitness world to sign up but what they were offering me is different. they want me to lock on to either a 12 month contract or a 24 month contract. is this how memberships usually are? he said the only way for me to get out of the contract is if i have a doctor's note stating i cant workout anymore or a one way plane ticket.

yeah dude that sounds pretty normal. negotiate hard, then walk out, cuz they'll have your number and for sure they'll call back and each time they call back the deal will get better.

some can correct me if i'm wrong but i believe fitness world takes your initiation fee and spreads it across 12 mos or 24 mos on top of your monthly fee... if you pay for the exhorbent initiation fee up front then you can pay month to month and discontinue at anytime

$49 a month is the corporate fee, so it should be applicable at all locations.

I was told that for a one year contract, you can pay $49 a month; $59 a month with no contract.

Which one is better, Gold's Gym vs Steve Nash?

Sounds like both have the same rates. I live in Delta but don't mind driving out to Richmond to work out.

Steve Nash has a pool/sauna/hot tub. The weights area can get a little cramped tho.

Golds has more weight machines and the layout for weights is well spread apart. I don't think it gets as busy as steve Nash either. The one in Richmond also uses
the old grizzlies bball court, and when i checked it out the guy told me they were putting up punching bags.

Personally I'm really happy at snsc, and the chix are pretty dope too

Went to the downtown gym to sign up for the corporate rate and the sales guy said that deal was over and could not give me that price. I walked out without signing and a week late the sales guy emails me and says he can give me 8 months free for a 22 month contract which works out to $30 a month which was what the corporate rate was for my work place. Personally, I wasn't too happy with their sales tactics though their DT gym is really nice. Maybe I will hold out a little longer to get a better deal.

I'm looking to try out Steve Nash. Do they have any promos going on at the moment? Gold's Gym had a 7 day free pass promo. I'm looking to try something similar to get an idea how the Steve Nash facilities are.

^ Steve Nash always has a 7 day free pass.

When I signed up, they also had a $100 certificate for New Balance. I'm still waiting for it in the mail though...

I'm at fitness world.. and I love it whenever I meet/talk to random hongers. They fucking LOVE saying "Yeah. I workout at Steve Nash"
"Oh which one?"
"The one on Gilbert"

It's a fucking fitness world. Fuck you. Adding Steve Nash to the name doesn't make it any better than it was before.
