Question : How much does a gym membership cost in New York and is it worth it?

Answer from Alexis Conason, Psy.D., expert in Diet & Fitness

A gym membership in Manhattan can cost anywhere between $15 per month for a basic cardio machine and weights only gym to over $250 per month with hefty initiation fees for a high-end luxury gym with amenities like steam rooms, childcare services, and top-rate classes. Is it worth it? Depends on what kind of exercise you like to do. If you love treadmills and classes, then joining a gym is likely worth the money. If you favor exercising outdoors, then you can save the money on a gym membership. Central Park offers wonderful running and biking paths for use free of charge. Just take note that it does get quite chilly in the winter.
