Why Small Gyms Do It Better


We have all seen the commercials and advertisements for the oh so popular under $20 gym memberships. Gym chains offering these “deals” are popping up all over the place. However, is the cheap price tag worth all of the inconveniences that come with a big chain? Poor customer service, crowded peak hours, machine wait times, and sneaky membership fees are just naming a few. So then what can you do if this doesn’t seem like the place for you? Gym small!

Private community oriented gyms are the way to go if you’re totally over the chain life. There are numerous benefits to joining a smaller club, and I assure you that you get more bang for your buck when you actually enjoy going to the gym! Here are a few of the positives!

A friendly staff

In smaller health clubs, the staff is trained specifically with the interest of the customer in mind. We want to make sure that your gym experience is nothing but the best, and that starts as soon as you walk in the door. Have you ever walked into that popular big-name gym, only to find that there’s nobody at the desk to assist you? You won’t find that here! We are here to help with any questions you might have, and greet you with a smile. Small gym = extra love for each and every member.

A homey space

Personally, I hate feeling like I’m working out in a giant warehouse. In a private health club, you can kill your workout in an environment that feels more like home. Here at Benefitness, our club has many different rooms to suit your needs. That means whether you are in the mood for a communal group exercise class, or want a more private place for your workout, we have options for both!

Less waiting, more kicking butt

Nothing is worse than having to stand around waiting for a cardio machine, especially when you just want to get in a quick sweat session. Even during “peak hours,” that’s not an issue here! Although we are a small club, we have more than enough machines to accommodate everyone, so you don’t end up wandering around wasting your time. There also isn’t a limit to the amount of time you can spend up in our cardio loft, so you can take as much time as you need to without getting kicked off a machine.

Smaller class size, more class options

Less members means smaller class sizes! You won’t feel crowded in our group exercise classes, and can still get the attention and form corrections from the teachers. Our instructors make everyone feel welcome, and encourage our members to work to their fullest potential. Our schedule includes over 60 classes per week; ask a staff member for a recommendation if you’re not sure which is right for you. If you’re still looking for more personal attention in class, we now offer small group training classes as well. Check at the front desk so we can hook you up with your first one for free!


Nothing makes you feel more welcome than a community style gym. We want you to feel like you’re working out with friends, and actually enjoy the time you spend here. No judgment, no stress, no BS. Shouldn’t it always be that way? We believe that our members are truly the best. Everyone is welcoming and excited to share the space with you and break a sweat together…and that includes ladies from all walks of life. Our club ranges from teens to seniors and everyone in between. In our diverse and open community, you will always feel welcome!

More membership options

No matter your gym going needs, smaller gyms like Benefitness have a lot more membership options than our competitors. We offer monthly plans, pre-paid memberships, as well as short-term options if you’re only with us for a little while! Did you know you can also get a discount on your plan if you’re a student or senior citizen? We even have corporate discounts available. (Check with us to see if your business applies.) When you sign on with us, you get to choose the best option that works for you, and our staff will be sure you get you the best deal.

TIP: If you come in for a tour of our club, we take half off of your enrollment fee!

Come check us out! We currently have our Summer Special running! 12 weeks for $199, or if you’re a student, $189 for 3 months + 1 month free! Call and schedule a tour, or walk on in and our staff will show you around. We can also hook you up with a free class pass so you can give the gym a try! These awesome deals are just one more reason to ditch the corporate chains and gym small!
