You probably already know that a Costco membership can get you access to discounted bulk groceries, high-quality Kirkland snacks, and all sorts of other great buys.  But there are plenty of other amazing perks of being a Costco member that don’t involve the contents of the store at all. Among those? A seriously great deal on a gym membership. Maybe you’ve been on the fence about joining a gym because the options you’ve seen are too expensive. Enter Costco’s partnership with 24 Hour Fitness. Find out more things you aren’t buying at Costco, but should be.

This fitness center has over 400 chains throughout the United States. It has a few different club levels that offer different amenities, but no matter which one you choose, you’re guaranteed to find a plethora of activities for all interests and exercise needs. 24 Hour Fitness offers strength training classes, high-intensity interval training (HIIT), yoga sessions, on-site personal training, and much more. And, with Costco’s membership package, you’re not limited to just one 24 Hour Fitness location. You have access to any 24 Hour Fitness location at the Sport level.

As a Costco member, you’re eligible for a two-year membership package, and it’ll only set you back $399.99. For comparison, if you sign up for a 24 Hour Fitness monthly membership without the Costco discount, you’ll have paid over $800 by the end of two years. That’s right—getting the membership through Costco saves you more than $400, cutting your expenses by more than half! That’s not bad for the $60 annual Costco membership fee… especially since that fee also gives you access to an entire warehouse’s worth of wholesale goodies. And that’s not even the only surprising perk you can get from a Costco membership. Learn why you should be buying your car through Costco, too.

As long as you’re a newcomer to 24 Hour Fitness (and have a Costco membership), this awesome perk can be yours, and it’s only one click away. Learn more about it on Costco’s site, or just head to the Costco nearest to you to sign up in person. With that kind of sweet deal, you might just feel even better after a workout than you do already. Next, check out some more secrets Costco employees won’t tell you.
