Are you switching to Goodlife Fitness?

I currently attend a gym in Brandon, am happy there and really have no reason to change. However, I am curious for those that currently attend a gym in Brandon, and either have already signed up or are planning to sign up with Goodlife Fitness what the draws to Goodlife are? I am not familiar with Goodlife, so I am just wondering what they will offer that other gyms in Brandon do not offer.

I think it is more than 35/ bucks a month.  
Come fall I will go to HLC at BU. The only thing I want and need is the walking path.

I switched facilities...

I was previously paying for what I feel were outrageous fees for poor customer service, having a personal trainer making last minute cancelations or not showing up, broken equipment, poor management and a dirty facility. I am excited for equipment that is functional (not broken), offers large change rooms, lockers, bigger space and offers a variety of programs tailored to my wants/needs. It was a simple choice for me to switch facilities, especially to lock in that cheaper rate for a 24/7 gym. Joining a gym for the new atmosphere and a closer commute is also a perk.

Promo

The $35 is a promo price. It's won't stay at that priced. If you look closely at their website, there is no indication of what their "regular" price actually is.  
 
I called one in Winnipeg. Their regular price is roughly $80/month.

When I...

I recently signed up and was told my promo price was locked in for as long as I was with them.  
 
That being said, I wouldn't be surprised if after my contract expires a year or so from now if they try and renegotiate a higher rate.  
 
Also, that 80 dollar monthly fee sounds like there regional rate or national rate. You can either sign up just for your club, within ur region, or national in case you Travel and want to train at good life's elsewhere. I'd never pay 80 dollars a month to use a gym. Going rate in other big cities is 50 or so a month.

That is correct it will be same price until you cancel. After opening day the rates will be higher. I think what they are trying to do is figure out interest in the place to determine rates. I would bet around the 50-60 per month. A friend told me his membership in Winnipeg was 60 a month but that i:ncluded a pool.

Good Life

Price is $ 44 / month I believe that's the Brandon facility only. Reason for switching for me is - cheaper than the Y that's where I am right now , new facility , better parking,24/7 , no teenagers who just there for the free wifi

Price

In the town I grew up in Alberta, they're $40 a month. I would switch for price and hours. They also had some really cool contests and events in Alberta, like an "amazing race" and other such events.

I'm

Switching to GoodLife. I'm looking forward to trying some of the new equipment and being 24/7 staffed is a big plus for me. I'm currently with the YMCA and find the upstairs staff lazy and unaware of what's going on around them. I seen one woman stumble on a treadmill and none of the staff noticed. Though the woman was fine. It could have been much worse. I also don't like the small children waiting and playing on the equipment waiting for their parents. I'm all for children being active. And if they were serious about it and were using the equipment properly, I'd be all for it.  
I think GoodLife is a good thing for Brandon. I for one hope it's welcomed.

childcare

Does goodlife offer childcare? I gonto the YMCA over other facilities for the childcare, gymnasium, and pool. The cost to the YMCA is more but I feel you get more with those options. The thing I don't like is the fact I have to pay a higher fee because I am over the age of 26 (discrimination?)..... I also don't like that I have received 15+ annoying flyers from goodlife!

Seriously! I pay $38 per month at the y. But as soon as I turn 26 it goes to $55 per month!! That is way too expensive for a gym membership in my opinion. I will be switching gyms on my birthday.  
 
Also, I hear ya in the goodlife flyers. They just go right in the recycling anyway!

how is it discrimination to pay higher fee once turning 26??? Do you find discrimination for restaurants offering you 'kids eat free under 6'. Prices doesn't go your liking is called discrimination.

GoodLife opening in Brandon is NOT offering Childcare.  
I will not be changing as the gym we are at is already 24/7, and we pay close to the same rates as the promotion anyway. We are quite happy at Anytime, and they have a great staff. Also I don't want to battle shoppers for parking spaces to go to the gym at the mall (especially near Christmas, lol) And AF is close to home. Just my opinion!

kids eat free under 6

Kids under 6 barely eat anything so it makes sense to lower a price for them.... me being over the age of 26 doesn't cost the gym anything so there is absolutely no reason to increase the price except for the simple reason they want younger faces in the gym...
