ÉCONOFITNESS: YOUR LOW-COST FITNESS ALLY!
It's no secret that Éconofitness is the cheapest self-serve fitness club chain on the market. Other than big savings, do you really know what else you’ll be getting by signing up?
📌For as little as $4.99 (plus taxes) every two weeks, you’ll have:
✅ ACCESS TO YOUR LOCAL GYM
That means access to more than 50 cardio machines and 50 assisted weightlifting machines; free weights up to 75 pounds—and not just one pair of each weight, but 2-3 pairs; a bench or rack circuit with Olympic bars, kettlebells, BOSU balls, plyometric boxes, and much more. There’s also an area with mats for floor, abdominal and stretching exercises, with posters on the wall featuring workout advice.
✅ UNLIMITED VIRTUAL GROUP FITNESS CLASSES AND VELOCYCLE
The big screens are turned on from the minute the gym opens until we close at night, giving members access to on demand fitness classes
and velocycle. That means you can take classes given by the best group coaches in Québec, at any time of the day. You can easily build a workout program around the virtual group classes!
✅ 30-MINUTE EXPRESS CIRCUIT
If you’re in a hurry or you’ve never set foot in a gym, we have the perfect solution for you. The 30-minute Express Circuit
consists of an 8-minute warm-up, 12 minutes of strength training on selected machines, and 10 minutes of cardio. You even have access to an interactive kiosk
that explains the circuit and how each machine works, allowing you to master the equipment and get in shape, but most of all, to build up the confidence you need to explore the rest of the gym.
✅ ORIENTATION SESSION
It takes some people a lot of guts to join the gym. If you’re feeling lost and wondering how to get the most out of your workout, then sign up for one of our orientation sessions the minute you join! This session will help you navigate the gym with the confidence of knowing exactly where things are and how to use the various services. Don’t be shy to ask questions—that’s exactly what the staff member is there for!
✅ 3 DIFFERENT TRAINING PROGRAMS DEPENDING ON YOUR GOAL
In the Workout
section on our website, you’ll have access to three training programs designed by Coach Jen. Whether your workout goal is to get in shape
, lose weight
, or build muscle
, you’re sure to find something that works for you.
✅ WEIGHT-LOSS GUIDE
This invaluable guide, available FREE of charge to all members and non-members, provides all the support you need throughout your weight-loss program. It contains four complete training programs with how-to pictures and videos, a training planning calendar, a section on nutrition (by Hubert Cormier, nutritionist), and a variety of physical tests to be performed before and after your program so that you can easily evaluate your results. This is THE guide to get if you want to start a weight-loss or fitness program!
With the Economize Program
, your membership pays for itself thanks to the many discounts you’ll get as an Éconofitness member. Your membership card will entitle you to discounts on food, supplements, clothing, hotel rooms, travel, spas, activities, eyeglasses, furniture, and even cars. We wouldn’t be surprised if some people signed up just for the great discounts!
📌 For just a few dollars more every two weeks, you’ll have access to many other services:
✅ UNLIMITED ACCESS TO ALL GYMS
Éconofitness gyms are located throughout the province (see the list of gyms HERE
). So, you no longer have an excuse for not going to the gym, even when you’re on the road.
✅ UNLIMITED ACCESS TO LIVE GROUP FITNESS CLASSES
At Éconofitness, you will find the best coaches in Quebec, and not just on big screens. The 13 Éconofitness EXTRA gyms offer group fitness classes
with a live coach. In addition to virtual fitness classes, Éconofitness offers world-renowned classes, such as LesMills BODYPUMP, ZUMBA, and POWER CARDIO, as well as popular classes exclusive to Éconofitness, such as GoFitness ZEN YOGA, GoFitness COMBAT and GoFitness DANCE PARTY, led by extraordinary on-site coaches. Fitness classes with a live coach are included in the EXTRA membership.
✅ UNLIMITED ACCESS 24/7 AND DURING HOLIDAYS
That’s right! The majority of Éconofitness gyms are open 24/7 for the benefit and enjoyment of all night owls! Access to the gym during hours that are not supervised by employees (at night and on public holidays) is limited to members with a Platinum or Extra membership. Members with an ÉCONO membership can upgrade to a Platinum or Extra membership
to get access to the gym at night and on public holidays.
✅ UNLIMITED ACCESS TO THE SHOWERS
Everyone can take a shower at the gym. But with the Econo package, it’ll cost you $1 for every three minutes, whereas with the Platinum membership, you’ll have time to lather up, wash your hair, shave, close your eyes and relax for a few minutes. Well, the other members might start knocking on the shower door after an hour, but otherwise, feel free to take your time!
✅ UNLIMITED ACCESS TO MASSAGE CHAIRS
Our gyms are equipped with massage chairs
for head-to-toe relaxation, so feel free to use them after a workout or to drop by just for that! Since not many people can afford a professional massage every week, we tend to spoil ourselves only a few times a year. But the massage chairs are included in the price of your membership, so you can take full advantage every day of the year if that’s what you fancy.
✅ UNLIMITED ACCESS TO HYDROMASSAGE BEDS
If you think a massage should be done lying down, we’ve also got something for you: a bed with water jets
that move up and down your body to relieve tension and relax muscles. If you want the full Zen experience, nothing is stopping you from starting with a hot shower, then spending 20 minutes in the massage chair, and ending with 10 minutes on the hydromassage bed. Who needs the spa when you’ve got everything you need to relax and unwind at your gym at no extra cost?
✅ UNLIMITED USE OF TANNING EQUIPMENT (18 YEARS AND OVER)
✅ SHARE YOUR MEMBERSHIP CARD
If your partner, roommate, mom or co-worker wants to hit the gym, simply lend them your membership card when you’re not using it, and they’ll have access to all the same services as you, except for the Platinum zone, which is for members only. Between you and me, that means you and your sweetie can decide to pay for only one membership that lets you both work out. True, you won’t be able to work out together, but doesn’t absence make the heart grow fonder?
For less than the price of a restaurant meal once every two weeks (and we are not talking about anything special), you’ll have access to gyms located across the province, multiple group classes, massage chairs, hydromassage beds, tanning booths, and a whole range of partners to help you save even more. In fact, you’ll save so much on our one-stop services that your membership will most likely pay for itself—and then some! What are you waiting for? Join today!
