Amenities offered at YouFit Gyms

YouFit gyms offer extremely affordable memberships balanced with a fair amount of standard amenities. You won't get mid-or-high end amenities, but you'll enjoy the great pricing and good value. Here's what to expect:

  • 92% of their locations feature workout turf—we count 59 of 64 gyms.
  • 84% of YouFit locations have Olympic training stations. We count 54 of their 64 gyms as a place to lift heavy at.
  • 36% of their locations have pickleball. That's 23 of 64 locations and while it may not sound like much, these courts make YouFit one of the gym leaders in the nation for pickleball players.

All the standard gym equipment and offerings are there, too:

  • Free weights and benches 
  • Cardio machines (ellipticals, stair-masters, treadmills)
  • Strength machines of various sorts
  • Turf areas with kettlebells, sleds, stretching and bodyweight equipment

What we love about YouFit Gyms

We love the affordable pricing structures—we've seen as low as $10 a month (charged as $5 biweekly) in some areas. Their gyms are a bit no-frills, but are clear to the point as places to get a workout in.

  • One of the gym chains leading the pickleball charge! You'll be able to find courts across the country, but it's quite rare to see them at gyms. YouFit has you covered (23 of 64 locations) with the popular sport.

  • Olympic lifting at 54 of their locations, 84% of total. Functional training turf is at 59 clubs, 92% of total. These are two popular amenities that we see younger members are asking for more often. 

  • The crazy good $9.99 a month basic membership. Kudos as well for the ultra-clear pricing options—on the first page—of the YouFit website.

What we wish YouFit Gyms would improve

While YouFit checks off nearly all the boxes for most folks, there are still a few things we'd like to see. We wish they would fix a few things.

  • No hot tub, no steam room, no pools. Ouch! Aqua amenities aren't a focus for YouFit, and it's hard to compete with other gym chains that offer up water-fun-functions.

  • We wish more of their locations had a basketball hoop. In the areas that YouFit has clubs, many other gym chains don't have a court for members to play on.

  • We'd like to see more photos of individual locations on their website. You can't get a good idea of the layout, equipment, or even parking. 

How much is YouFit Gyms?

YouFit gyms—under new management—have underwent some positive changes to improve the member experience. We like how they also streamlined the monthly cost, breaking it into three easy tiers. In our analysis, we looked at 5 different clubs from YouFit, going from Phoenix all the way to Rhode Island. Here's what you can expect: 

  • $9.98/month "Basic" membership. Expect an enrollment fee of $44 to $79. Most places we saw had a promo for $0. You can use their cardio machines, free weights, various strength machines, plus the Performance Lifting Area aka Olympic platforms. This membership level will cover all your basic workouts.
  • $19.98 to $23.98/month "Premium" membership. Typically $37 to enroll but promo also brought it to $0. You'll get all the above plus access to all YouFit gyms, as well as unlimited guest privileges. 
  • $29.98/month to $36.99 "Premium+" membership. Also $37 to enroll but $0 on a promotion deal. This access level essentially just adds on small group training, plus a nutrition app. 

Annual fee is $49 for all locations we checked. Didn't see that fee fluctuate at these locations:

  • Providence, Rhode Island
  • Austell, Georgia
  • Midlothian, Virginia
  • Phoenix, Arizona
  • West Palm Beach, Florida - Only club we saw that also has cardio cinema and cycle classes

One key thing to know about YouFit: many (if not all) locations charge their fees "biweekly" aka twice a month. That may be great to lineup with your paychecks, but that means in a calendar year you'll get billed 26 times, vs 12 with most other gym chains. 

Yes the bi-weekly cost will look cheaper, but two extra bill cycles really mean a $4.99 biweekly = $10.83 monthly (we listed it as $9.98/monthly to better compare with other chains on our site). Small difference, but it's important to know.

  • $49.99 annual fee to keep your membership going. It'll be charged 30 days after your initial join date.
  • Enrollment fee ranges from $44 to $79. It might just be their current promo for December 2023, but every location we looked at drop this fee to $0.
  • Gym prices got you stressed out? Start with a free trial instead.

"Is this gym worth it?"

Use our guides to help inform and educate what a gym can offer your fitness lifestyle. Only you can truly decide if a gym is worth it!

YouFit Gyms are fun, upbeat and straightforward—looking to stay ahead of the times with popular offerings such as pickleball. Other amenities they pride themselves on include performance turf, group fitness classes and Olympic lifting platforms

Alone, these this set of services put them ahead of many other value-focused chains such as Anytime Fitness and Planet Fitness. All gym chains we feature of course have the basic collection of cardio and strength equipment too.

If you're looking for something different, say—pool, sauna, steam or basketball—you'll need to look elsewhere. We did say they were straightforward, right?

And it's exactly those 3 amenities that will determine if YouFit is worth it, to you. Outside the lack of aqua amenities, if you're a fan of the ever popular pickleball, then YouFit should be at the top of your list. Their 23 locations with the sport count for about a third of gyms with pickleball—in the nation! That might be their current claim-to-fame, but we believe they still offer a great, basic, entry-level option to their members.

Price-wise they're doing great with the $9.98 Basic to kick it off, with $23.99 Premium and $36.99 Premium+ options. The higher price points bring you pickleball, unlimited guest privileges and small group training. Don't forget about their bi-weekly billing process. That, too, could make this gym worth it.
