Take advantage of the new year with a fitness deal

Thinking about joining a gym but worried about the price? As the new year comes around, your future is in your hands. Fitness establishments all over Chicago will be celebrating New Year's resolution time with special deals.

Here's what to look for in a new membership:

- How long the contract lasts--and whether you have some wiggle room there.

- How close the gym is to your home or work. That will make you more likely to stick with it.

- Whether they'll let you try out the facility before you sign up. This should always be something that you do. It gives you a real idea of how much you'll use it.

- Whether rates go up or remain the same throughout your contract.

Some deals that we love for the New Year:

Fit Lincoln Park - 25% off if you buy before 2011.

Chicago School of Hot Yoga - All kinds of discounts! Visit their website to learn more, and try their free class January 3 at 6:30 to get you jumpstarted.

The Bar Method - 30% off the first month if you sign up for auto renew.
