    The first one would be OK if you deleted 'to' after 'join'. The others are incorrect.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer

    I would say only the first is correct. You can't use in at all. It doesn't sound right to say in a health club.

    Indeed. I would use something like "available" instead; which is why I said it was grammatical but not natural.
