This gym offers newbies a free seven-day trial via their website. However, if you’re willing to log in with your social media information, you can upgrade to a 14-day trial membership. Much better than the Facebook spam you still get from that time you clicked the like button on the Step Up 2 page after three glasses of wine.
After giving up just a few fields worth of information, LA Fitness will email you a three-day pass to any of their clubs. Known for spacious clubs, many of which have pools, LA Fitness is kind of the Super Target of fitness clubs. But just be prepared for the extremely hard sell on personal training services during those three free days.
If LA Fitness is the Super Target of gyms, Equinox is the “I own my own Gulfstream jet and don’t know what Super Target even means” of gyms. If you know a member here, suck up to them for a free guest day pass. Otherwise, with a little internet sleuthing, you can score a free three-day pass with only having to possibly give up your firstborn.
The appeal of this gym can be found in the name. Whether you’re a graveyard shift worker, night owl or just don’t like fighting with people over machines at 6pm, this is the choice for the flexible fitness fans (say that three times fast). Three-day trial passes are available just by signing up with your email on their website.
Fun fact: Gold’s Gym started as an iron pumping hotspot on Venice Beach frequented by the Arnold Schwarzenegger himself. The logo for the chain may have given that away a little. Either way, if you would like to do your own Pumping Iron impression, check out their website for a free seven-day trial membership.
We cannot personally vouch as to whether or not it is indeed fun to stay at the YMCA but we can verify that the YMCA facilities in the Dallas area rival those of any slickly advertised gym chain. The downtown T. Boone Pickens and brand-new White Rock facilities are particular faves. A seven-day trial membership is yours for the asking via their website.
OK, listen. Let’s make a deal here. We will tell you where to go and how to go about getting a free CrossFit trial class as long as you make us one promise. Under no circumstances will you become one of those obnoxious people who talks incessantly about CrossFit and CrossFit only. Pinky swear? If so, head to their website to check out the location nearest you and when their next free trial class will be.
Leave it to a gym on the outskirts of Deep Ellum to name itself Psycho Gym. But the only thing that should be afraid are your love handles. One of Psycho Gym’s many specialties is kettlebells, and they’d be more than glad to show you how to work ‘em. Just head to their website to check out how to get a free trial class.
If tough love is what you crave, boot camp is most certainly your style. This Coppell-based boot camp, with training session also available in Dallas, is the kick in the pants that you might need to get those goals met. Visit their website to sign up for one free fitness consultation and training session to see if it is for you.
