Getting in shape is not cheap, unless of course, you know the In's and Out's of searching out the best prices for the services you need. Some gym memberships in Las Vegas range from $10 to over $100 a month and come with few to many perks. Before you select any membership or diet program always consult you doctor and do a soul searching evaluation of what you will be able to incorporate into your life and hopefully will stick and become a real part of your new, healthier lifestyle.
The Gym : Everyone has heard of Las Vegas Athletic Club , Gold's Gym, and Curves . What you may not know is that there are many smaller gyms with cheaper membership dues and no contracts . If you are deffinitely planning to join a gym why not shop around for a month or two and take advantage of free passes . All the major gyms offer passes to try the gym good for anywhere between a one time visit and 30 days. Check out all the gyms in your area and listen to the speals , then you'll be better ready to negotiate ( yes you CAN negotiate) when it comes time to decide on the Gym that's right for you. Print a 7 day pass to Anytime Fitness Here , to get your "gym crawl" started.
Diet programs : Weight Watchers , Jenny Craig, Isagenix, Medical Weightloss Centers ..there are a million different weightloss plans to choose from. Some good questions to ask are :
1. Can I try this program for free ? Most times the answer is no. Ask if there is a money back guarantee. For most the answer is no as well but programs like , Beachbody and Isagenix offer a 30 day money back guarantee, so if the program doesn't work for you , you lose nothing.
2. What kind of services are offered. Some places offer group programs , like Weight Watchers. Other places offer supervised medical weightloss like XpressCare , or complete meal programs like Jenny Craig or Bistro MD. Evaluate what you need before jumping in to any plan.
3. How much will it cost me per pound, to lose weight. Go off the company's statistics and find the $/lb ratio. You may fall slightly above or below the ratio because, well everyone is different. However, this is a good indicator of how much money it will cost you to reach your goal weight , far better than cost per month.
