An individual membership to CrossFit Utah Valley is $125 per month if you do not qualify for any discounts. We offer discounts to students, kids, couples, military and first responders. This price tag can be quite shocking to most people.
"Why would I pay $125 for CrossFit when I can go to VASA for $10?"
That is a question that I am asked almost on a daily basis; and likely a question/comment many members of CrossFit gyms hear too. “Expensive”, like hard, soft, cheap, hot, cold, etc. is a relative term. Expensive compared to exactly what? Expensive compared to the traditional gym membership that allows you access to equipment, no coaching, and a few pizza parties each month? Or expensive compared to P90X in your living room? Or compared to the cost of living the final years of life with one of a myriad of obesity-related diseases? Think for a moment about some of the other bills in your life. How much is your phone bill per month? How about your cable bill? Most people don't think twice about paying $100+ each month for those things.
This isn’t going to be a rant about why CrossFit is better than what you’re doing now. Our goal is to help change your behaviors so that exercise and your health can become a top priority; it’s not to tell you that CrossFit is the only means to that end.
CrossFit Utah Valley provides group fitness classes. We give you all the tools you need to be successful. You only need to show up and work.
CrossFit gyms are not created equally. Some are expensive in regards to what they offer, and should be charging less; most of those will be forced to close in the near future. There are also gyms that offer a phenomenal value for what they provide. We believe our true worth is determined by how much more we give in value than we take in payment.
When a potential member calls and tells us that the CrossFit gym down the block charges $50 less, or has a Groupon deal; and asks if we’d match it; it’s a quick, simple answer: “No, we don’t compete with businesses based on price, but on value and services we provide. We welcome you to come stop by and experience how we’re different. “ Your first workout is always free and we do not require contracts or long term commitments.
Walk into a Lexus and Kia dealership and let me know if there’s a difference. I assure you that the Lexus dealership is not complaining about a business across the street that’s selling a similar product for 50-70% less than their own. A Lexus is considered “expensive” to a lot of people. Ask the Lexus dealer why. You’ll be able to tell the difference from the second you walk in the showroom.
When you join us at CrossFit Utah Valley, you may be thinking that you’re just joining a gym. You’ll be wrong. Why is CrossFit so expensive? We invest in our members! We invest in our staff. We invest in our facility. We invest in giving our members an experience. You’re not paying for access to some equipment, half of which you don’t know how to use. You’re paying for a change in lifestyle. You’re paying for a place that, in many cases, can become the social hub of your days. While classes may last 60 minutes, members hang around for twice that time AFTER they finish their workout. It’s a place where others will hold you accountable for your actions. Being part of a community of like-minded people is going to increase your chances of success. The “suffering” is always easier when you have people to join you!

So is CrossFit expensive? Well, the answer is... maybe. It depends on your personal priorities as well as your budget and disposable income.
