Cheap Gym Memberships Under £25 To Get You Going In 2016

Cheap Gym Memberships Under £25 To Get You Going In 2017

The Debrief: Even in London, it is possible to work out for less than £25 a month

Looking to join the gym this January, but struggling to see how you're going to afford upwards of £50, £60 and even £100 when you add in those pesky membership fees? Fear not – the budget gym business is booming and, even if you live in London, there are plenty of cheap membership options near you.


Open 24 hours, with your own online area for booking classes and tracking your progress, PureGym is kind of great if you don't actually like talking to people. You even access the gym with a pin code for the door, so there's no reception, you can just head straight in. Memberships start at £14.99 per month, though some of the central London gyms are a little more pricey (like £34.99), but there are still plenty of PureGyms in the capital that come in at under £20. There's no contract, loads of free classes and a 20% student discount if you're a UNiDAYS member. Want to try before you buy? New customers can get a free three-day pass if they register with PureGym by January 31st. Head here to find your nearest one.


The same company as those friendly orange planes you use to transport yourself to places like Malaga and Benidorm also does gyms. There's no contract here and it's really inexpensive; £25 a month in central London, but as little as £4.99 elsewhere (!!!). If you join during their January flash sale you'll avoid a joining fee, which is usually £25, so that's an added bonus. There's no need for an induction if you already know your way around the machines and while there aren't loads of locations, if you're in the South East, you're probably sorted. Find your nearest easyGym here.

The Gym

This 24-hour gym has no monthly contract, prices range from £10.99 a month outside London to £28.99 a month in central London (though it's generally less the further from Zone 1 you go) and they offer all sorts of free classes. Again, joining fee depends on location, with some branches dropping it altogether for January while busier gyms may still charge £25. There are 34 locations in London, with another seven opening soon, and 55 outside (with eight more on the way). Find your nearest here.


There aren't hundreds of branches of Fitness4Less, but they're one of your best bets for bargain memberships in London, with prices in the capital ranging from £17.99-£19.99 per month. There's no contract and plenty of classes like spin, yoga and circuits if that's your vibe. Find your local gym here.


With plenty of gyms around the UK and more opening soon, Xercise4Less memberships start at just £9.99 a month, with peak and off-peak options designed to save you money depending on your needs. The joining fee is £20 and there are 12-month or rolling contract options depending on how committed you want to get. Find your nearest gym here.
