Currently, gyms have yet to determine their holiday schedules. This is frustrating for those of use that like to go to the gym to relax from the pressure of the holidays. A fight with your least favorite relative can easily be eased by running a mile or two and relaxing in the sauna.
Your Best Bet At Finding A Gym With Holiday Hours
The best strategy is to call the gyms that you see locally or on a Google Map search. Most likely, they will have an answering machine message on indicating their hours. Thankfully, there are many gyms that are definitely going to be open for the holidays.
Holiday Gym Day Passes in San Francisco
Careful examination of over 20 gyms in the San Francisco area show that everyone is on board with the Gym Day Pass for the Holidays. This means that it will be easy to show up, provide identification, and obtain a day pass for $5-$15. Many hotels in San Francisco also offer this option to non-hotel guests.
Call Before You Leave
Of course, even the most prepared gym can have a mishap related to employees being unavailable. Even if you had confirmation that the gym would have holiday hours for Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Year’s Day, don’t be surprised if you arrive and the gym is closed. Staffing issues are typically a problem throughout the holiday season due to unavoidable transportation and air travel delays.
