Ways to save on gym memberships/yoga studios:

*Look out for promotions and discounts.

*Check if the gyms offer off-peak and/or location-based discounts. This can yield a fair bit of savings for you.

*Hidden fees. Be wary of extra fees like registration fees, late fees, cancellation charges and so forth. These may not be listed on the gym’s website and can add up to a lot.
