Q: I constantly see membership incentives for couples/pairs. Are there any reputable clubs where singles can get promotions this Fall that do not read "join with your spouse and save," or "two for one fitness training?"
Being single, I can relate to offers geared towards couples. This is a tough one for many clubs as they try to get more people in the door and in their eyes 2 is better than 1. There are ways around this. If your club is running a special that doesn't include you, ask for a special promotion of your own. When raised with the issue, management realizes the discrimination and will sometimes make allowances for it. Another option is to find a family member or friend who might be interested. A note in the suggestion box certainly can't hurt either! With the population of singles on the rise, let's hope we soon get recognized for specials of our own.
