Default Minimum age for joining a gym?

What's the average age you have to be to be able to join a gym? I've been looking, the one nearest me is 14, and I'm 13. But I want to join a gym now, not in 4 months. Another is 16.

1) What's the average age for joining a gym (if there is one)?
2) Does anyone know of any gyms near Bradford that you can join at 13?

Danke schoen

Wow I didn't know that. I've always wanted to join a gym but I never knew what age. Does it vary with gyms?

Default Re: Minimum age for joining a gym?

It depends on where you go.

When my sister was 11 and you had to be 13 in order to "join", she still "joined".
Reason being that if you saw what she looked like - you'd think she was 13.
Hell most thought she was 16 by the time she turned 13!

Anyway, if your birthday is that close by then you can probably get away with joining early.

Typically you have to pay in order to actually join - so our parents pay for our memberships.

If your birthday is in 4 months, I really don't think anyone will make that big of a deal out of it really.
But some are more anal about it than others.

Default Re: Minimum age for joining a gym?

i think the nearest gym to me is 16, but you might be able to get in younger with supervision.
im not sure where bradford is, so maybe just google for gyms there and see what the age is.

Default Re: Minimum age for joining a gym?

I'm not planning on going there everyday and doing 5 thousand laps, and 20 minutes of sit ups, hours upon hours of it, I just want to go to a gym, and perhaps get a little healthier XD

But...I'm getting mixed messages here :laughssss: so maybe I'll just go up to the gym near me and say, 'look, I'm 14 in 3 months, can I join?' and see what happens then.


Thanks to everyone who answered however

Default Re: Minimum age for joining a gym?

Go to your local gyms and ask them. This is the best way to find out what their policy is. Some gyms may not open all their features to you, but will open certain areas to the gym to younger people, that's the policy one I looked into had.

I really don't think they'll mind, they'll probably be thrilled at the opportunity to show a young person around and offer you some kind of discount.
