Now insurance companies are teaming up with health clubs to provide special discounts. However, the rates are almost identical to Bally – a one-time $29 enrollment fee, then $29 per month. On the one hand, there are studies that show obese and out-of-shape Americans are draining lots of money in terms of health care costs. So the partnership seems like a natural fit. Another natural fit involves the fact that insurance salespeople are among the least-trusted people in the country. Simply Google the search terms “Health Club Rip-Off” and you’ll see Bally and LA Fitness employees rank high among the con artists too.
Enjoy your workout.
