Chances are, you are one of the zillions of people who have committed to a fitter and healthier body this new yeara goal you made as you saw your paunch increase to an immense size over the holidays.

To help you achieve your fitness goals, we've collated the membership details of some of the largest gyms in the country, as well as popular wellness apps that can give you access to fitness hubs in Metro Manila.

As seen in the infographic on this page, the cost of a monthly membership in these big gyms ranges from Php2,700 to as much as Php3,000 per month for unlimited visits to any of their branches nationwide. Anytime Fitness has the largest gym network in the country, with over 100 branches, including locations in Cebu and Davao. Most of Gold’s Gym and Fitness First branches are found in Metro Manila.

A membership also gives you access to all of the facilities of the gym and, in some, private sessions with a trainer. However, you may also be subject to additional costs such as “joining” or “activation” fees. This will only be made at the initial sign-up though, so you don’t have to worry about additional payments in the next months.

Gyms also provide cheaper monthly rates if you commit to a longer membership duration. For example, Gold’s Gym’s three-month membership only costs Php8,400, which gives you a 26-percent discount on the original monthly rate.

But if you are the kind who likes variety in your workouts, a membership in GuavaPass or KFit may be more apt. For a minimum amount, you can book a workout session through these apps even if you're not a member of their partner clinics or studios.

Ranging from Php1,299 to Php1,399, membership in these apps can give you access to different kinds of workouts and fitness classes, like Yoga or CrossFit sessions, in various clinics in Metro Manila.

Before signing up in any of these apps though, it may be best to check the services’ partners so you'll have a better grasp on which can give you better access to the activities that you like the most.
