I've never heard of Equinox, what makes it so expensive?
I have two gym memberships (don't judge). The first is actually a gym in my office building, it's small, but has a lot to offer. I pay $15 every two weeks via payroll deduction.
I also belong to my local Y. I pay $57/mth for a family membership, so myself, my son and my SO can all work out there under that membership. I'm also able to take my little kids to pool and get discounts on different programs that are available.
So, I pay around $90 per month for both memberships, but I feel like I get a lot for my money.
