7. So do a variety of other entrepreneurial businesses.
It's what they can get away with charging. You know it's called free market capitalism and all that jazz. You too can shop around for a gym that doesn't charge as much, or you can maybe get a group of people at your job together and ask your gym for a group rate, or just go to your gym and tell them if they don't lower your monthly charge $10 you will quit. I personally think there should be public gyms for everyone to attend like they did in much of ancient Greece and in practically every city in the Roman empire. The state provided the facilities for baths that also had gymnasia to work out in. Anyone could go and use the facilities even slaves. The wealthy, of course, had their own private facilities on their estates.
