For metro Atlanta luxury apartments with fitness centers are standard amenities. Which is some good news for renters who call these luxury apartments home. For the ATL living in an apartment building with a fitness center may seem like an amenity reserved for luxury apartment renters, but in Atlanta, it’s actually slightly more affordable than purchasing a gym membership, according to a new HotPads® analysis.
Atlanta Luxury Apartments
The typical Atlanta apartment building with a fitness center adds about $74 to a renter’s monthly payment. With the average gym membership in the city costing $78 a month, Atlanta renters can expect to save $4 a month renting in a building with a gym included.
Saving money and getting more exercise are two of the most common New Year’s resolutions. For the new year many people are joining gyms or dusting off the treadmills in their apartment’s fitness center to make good on these promises. Without a meaningful difference in cost between apartment fitness centers and gym memberships, Atlanta renters are better able to examine their options based solely on their personal preferences.
Renter demand for on-site fitness centers is high. A recent study by the National Multifamily Housing Council found that 82 percent of renters nationwide are interested in renting in buildings with an on-site fitness center. In comparison, only 19 percent of apartments in Atlanta advertise a gym in the listing.
