Getting in shape is always a popular New Year's resolution and one way to do that is by joining a gym, but you may be asked to sign a contract. Different facilities have various specialties and prices, all which can be overwhelming. Additionally, many gyms may require you sign a contract. Angie's List founder Angie Hicks says, "If getting fit is the top of your New Year resolution list, be sure you understand what you are signing yourself up for before you sign up for a gym, especially if you haven't been an avid fitness person before. You want to make sure your contract has flexibility in case you change your mind."

Read the document carefully and don't sign it immediately. Take the contract home and take the time to make sure you understand the fine print, including what happens if you break it.

A gym spokesperson, Linda Martin says, "We really want to get members engaged right away so some of the mistakes we see is they don't take advantage of all of the complimentary things that we offer with the membership."

If you aren't sure what might work for you ask for some trial passes or try to go with a friend. Remember before you start any fitness program check with your doctor first. Another tip: ask how an injury or move to a new area might affect your contract. Some gyms allow members to suspend or cancel a membership in the case of an injury or permanent disability, while others may not.
