American Family Fitness is one of those gym chains that are best suited for families. A single person membership is $59 per month, but if you’re a group of 3 signing up under one account, you only pay $109 per month. For a 10-member plan it gets even better – you’ll only pay $209 per month. I’ll discuss the American Family Fitness membership cost and inclusions in detail shortly.

American Family Fitness Background

Can I freeze my membership at American Family Fitness?

Yes American Family Fitness lets you freeze your membership under 2 options medical and elective.

Under the medical option, if you or the main member can’t use most gym services for 30 days or more due to a medical reason and are under the care of a doctor or nurse, you can request a pause with no extra fees.

Elective freezes allow the main member to pause their membership up to 6 times a year, for periods of 1 to 6 months each time, with a $15 fee per month. If your membership is still active, medical freezes will extend both the membership and any personal training agreements.

However, if your membership has ended, only one additional month will be added. During the freeze period, your entire membership is paused, meaning you won’t have access to any services.

If you want to resume using the gym before the pause period ends, you can contact or visit any club location to reactivate your membership, possibly with a prorated fee. Click here to freeze your membership.

Staff is super friendly!! Always attentive and welcome me aloud and say goodbye regardless if I have headphones in or not!! Locker rooms are always clean and on multiple occasions I have gone in and someone is in the process of cleaning. You get what you pay for. It’s never too crowded, plenty of equipment, and they just added new equipment this week!

However, if you’re not a gym rat or don’t need fancy equipment, I would opt for a cheaper membership somewhere else! Also, this location is NOT 24/7 hours and they close earlier on the weekends!!!

If you’re a couple with children trying to enjoy an adults only workout together or a single parent with limited time to exercise because of parenting responsibilities, now you have no excuse! American Family Fitness (or AmFam) has a KidZone on site to help you enjoy the workout while your children are well taken care of by a dedicated and caring staff. Their facility adheres to stringent daycare policies, including a very good intake and release process. My grandchildren are on my membership, and they love playing with their KidZone friends which allows me to have a worry-free workout. Their 2-hour time period per visit gives me the opportunity to take in a scheduled group workout and lift some weights afterwards. As an added bonus, this facility holds several theme events throughout the year to make coming there fun for the kids. There are also several camps during the summer months, body boot camps, basketball camps, and year-round swimming lessons. American Family Fitness has it all for your children. Now what’s your excuse for not working out???
