Slimmers World Philippines – Read this before you join!
This is post is very much like my Gold’s Gym post. It’s a collection of information about the Slimmers World that I found online. I thought it might be useful to those who are thinking of joining but are undecided because of a lack of information.
Before I start though, be sure to check out our local group buying sites. You never know if there’s a deal for the gym that you want to enroll in:
Anyway, let’s get this post started already. I’ll be going through things point by point.
Things you need to know about Slimmers World Philippines
Let’s start with the important stuff, price.
Slimmers World rates are a lot cheaper than either Gold’s Gym or Fitness First. What makes them cheaper is their constant promo giveaways and their lifetime membership. A couple of points to keep in mind about how their agents and promos work before I go to the range of prices for their membership:
- There’s almost always a promo. They might tell you that it’s going to end in a couple of days or in a week to get you to sign up immediately but that’s their normal spiel.
- If they tell you there’s no promo or if you feel that the price is too high, find another agent and ask for a better deal.
- I’ve read that in some instances the agents will allow you do pay down payments just so you sign up. So if you can’t pay in full, try to negotiate. They’re trying to fill a quota so they will stretch things a bit to get you to join.
- I’ve read also that you might want to try enrolling near the end of the month since that’s when their quota count is about to end I think so they’re a bit more flexible then (naghahabol).
Now on to the actual price ranges. You’ll get different ones for every branch or agent you talk to because they have a good bit of freedom when it comes to the payment setup that they can give you.
But just so we have a baseline, from my research, the regular Rates for Slimmers World Philippines seem to be:
3500 pesos = 1+1 months (some people have been able to get this for 2.5-3K)
7500 pesos = 3+3 months (some people have been able to get this for 4-5K)
12000 pesos = 6+6 months (some people have been able to get this for 7-9K)
These are just rough estimates though. You might be charged much less or much more than these depending on the promo they have or the lack of one (or at least the lack of a good one).
Medyo malaki talaga yung pinagkaiba ng prices pag may ok na promo, almost seems unfair to the ones who paid regular price lol.
So remember to haggle really really hard for a good deal.
It’s also a good idea to just buy the lifetime membership of Slimmers World if you have the money. No matter what type of promo they give you, a lifetime membership will almost always be a better long term option if you’ve got the cash for it. Being fit requires a lifestyle change after all so it’s a pretty good idea to get this if you can.
From my research lifetime membership rates range from 35000-45000 pesos.
It’s a huge amount to pay onetime but it’s basically like you’re paying the full amount for 3 or 4 years worth of gym use and after that, everything’s free already .
So it’s a really good deal if you know you’ll be working out in SW for a long time.
If you’re thinking of getting a Personal Trainer you’ll have to spend a little extra. For PT a session seems to cost around 500 pesos or a little over. So for say 10 sessions you’d have to pay around 5k.
I’ve also read that not all their trainers are good or even know what they’re doing. This isn’t really a surprise and it’s the same with both Gold’s and Fitness first so I didn’t expect Slimmers World Philippines to be an exception. I’m sure there are also some good ones but they might be hard to find.
You might be better off doing your own research about fitness and on how to achieve your goals if you’re really serious.
And finally in some branches I read it can get really crowded. Peak hours is when people get off work/school, around 5-7 PM. I even read that it can get so crowded that you actually have to sign up to use the treadmill and your time on it is limited to like 20 or 30 minutes kasi may nakasunod say sa pila. So try to workout during off-peak times.
That’s it for this post .
Again this is a compilation of information that I got from the net, mostly from their main site and from pinoyexchange like the one I did for my Gold’s Gym post.
So the prices I post here might not be exactly what you’ll be quoted but I think they should be good enough for you to come up with an estimate at least. Also some of the information here might become outdated and if you notice any, feel free to give me a heads up.
If you’re interested in reading up on the posts at pinoyexchange or asking questions to actual members fo Slimmers World Philippines you might want to check out these threads:
The above link is the new thread created because the old thread had too many off topic arguments in them. If you’re interested in digging up info from the first thread though here it is:
Thanks for reading this post and if you’re a Slimmers World member and you have any info or tips that might be useful to people who are thinking of joining, please leave a comment below to let me know what it is so I can add it here. Also if you notice anything wrong in this article, give me a heads up so I can correct those as well.
And finally I’d love to hear how much you paid for your membership because I know that’s the most important question for most people. I’d love to be able to keep the prices up to date on this post at least.
Thanks for visiting my blog and stay fit .
pahabol hehe di papala final yung nasa taas, if you found this or any of my posts useful/informative, I really hope you like it on FB and G+ and share it with your friends.
