That's crazy, but I live in a pretty rural area, so I can understand that Philly prices would be much more than mine.
I pay about $30/month.
I've never heard of Equinox, what makes it so expensive?
I have two gym memberships (don't judge). The first is actually a gym in my office building, it's small, but has a lot to offer. I pay $15 every two weeks via payroll deduction.
I also belong to my local Y. I pay $57/mth for a family membership, so myself, my son and my SO can all work out there under that membership. I'm also able to take my little kids to pool and get discounts on different programs that are available.
So, I pay around $90 per month for both memberships, but I feel like I get a lot for my money.
Equinox has a lot of classes that are supposed to be top notch. I think that adds to the high rate, but I don't do the classes that often. It is a gorgeous gym and does offer the towel service, etc.
That's freaking insane.
I pay $50/month for me and DH. That includes a pool. We could pay $60 and have childcare, but I'm too cheap.
Our previous gym membership was $50. (Nice gym, offered CrossFit for more $, classes, towel service, etc.).
Our current gym is $10/mo. (Planet Fitness, so no frills...but 1mi from our house and I wasn't using the classes at the other one.)
$45/month, before 'discount' (we get a % off every year for lbs lost!). Gym has no towels, but it does have a pool and indoor water park, plus a climbing wall, track (indoor) and multiple gym areas. It's a bit pricey, but we use it enough. Classes are extra but not much.
My gym at work is $30/month, but has towels and a sauna, no pool however. Classes are included.

I'm at Equinox Century City in LA and pay $240. So $155 sounds pretty reasonable.

Gym #2: About-to-be-opened small new fitness center at work. Free to all employees. Basic cardio equipment and weights. No classes* and no frills. (*Once every 6-8 weeks they offer 2-3 Zumba classes in our main conference room after work. These are free.)

The price seemed normal to me for Equinox.
We keep getting invites for the new Marina del Rey location. Their rates are $145/ month + $125 initiation fee, or $225/month + $300 initiation fee for multi-club.
I pay $120/ month for CrossFit with my teacher discount.
*With our taxpayer money at our awesome local town Rec Center
I pay $32/month for my local Y.
I used to pay $180/mo for an outdoor boot camp class...5x a week and you get a tshirt at the end of each month. It was great for a while, but they increased their prices last year and did away with the tshirts so I quit. My wallet thanked me.
