    If someone uses a gym for just cardio than I agree it is a waste of money. But if weight training is your thing, it is completely worth it.

    The hot chicks at the gym make it well worth my 25$ as well.

    I do most of my exercise in the house with cheapo dumbbells, stretching, and leg weights. Every other day, so I don't care whether it's hot or cold outside.

    For cardio and for from-waist-down, I get on my used $150 bike with toe-straps, and do 2 vigorous circuits around the perimeter of my neighborhood, about 3.5 miles, 15 minutes, every day, when it's not real cold or wet. That really burns the legs/lower-back/abs/glutes, and lungs, all with no impact. My legs have put on noticeable bulk in 3 months of cycling.

    In the summer the biking produces a heavy sweat, a great way to eliminate toxins and clean pores. Also biking on warm days in shorts only gives 15 minutes of sun.

    It's amazing how fast you cool down and catch your breath, once you get fit.

    Monthly $? zero

    Time and $gas wasted commuting to/from a gym: zero

    Number of ladies picked up at the gym/meat market: zero

    Katy,

    If you don't care about classes or swimming and just want a gym with weights, cardio machines, and machines, then check out Anytime Fitness. It's 24 hours (you need a key fob to open the door). They are opening up all over town now and the one I go to is never crowded. Sometimes I'm the only person there.

    I think the rates vary per gym, but I go to the one on 1604/Culebra and pay $25/mo. No contract.

    Also, they just opened a YMCA fitness center at OP Schnabel or however it's spelled.

    I wish there was one opened or opening that is closer to me. I think I'm going to check out Spectrum since there's one downtown. We'll see about the rates.

    If you're a workout vet or just thinking of starting a workout regimen, be it aerobics, weights, whatever, or even if you're thinking about trying to shed some poundage, this is a pretty good website to get some ideas on starting up or incorporating something new into what you already do:

    The $cam is that you NEED a gym membership to get/stay fit, not whether you use it or not.
    Yes, gyms were invented by the bush/ repug neocon cabal to screw over the sheep.

    Golds Gym or other???

    I've been a memeber of Golds Gym for a while but I'm thinking of changing gyms. Suggestions?

    I'm assuming you live in the San Antonio area. If you live on the north side, you might consider the Jewish Community Center (JCC) off NW Military and Wurzbach. I just had a friend check it out and she said the facilities are pretty nice. Plus, your membership provides you with other benefits. For example, I think they also have a singles' mixer/coffee once a month. I think she said the cost is $50 a month.

    If you graduated college locally, you might also check into the university's facilities. They generally offer the use of their workout equipment to their alumni for a relatively small price.

    Great. That means I'm only burning 4.17 calories per sexual encounter.

    Unless it's changed since I belonged, Spectrum requires that you give them 3 months notice to quit.

    I've also heard that getting out of a Gold's contract is a beyotch.

    There's also Home Court America.

    I got to a bar called The Gym. Usually it's about $2 a beer. I do about 10 sets and then go home with a nice buzz.

    I have a friend who's a member at Spectrum and confirmed you have to give them 3 months notice to quit. Fortunately, I'm done with my contract at Golds and can leave at anytime and get my last month free.

    Home Court America is across the highway from my office, I think I'll check it out.

    I'm pretty sure that Kori and LJ used to belong there, so they can give you more info on it.

    We have two of the best fitness centers you can imagine here at work. I spend 35 minutes on the elliptical trainer and then a half hour lifting weights. All the time I'm rocking out to my Nano and checking out the eye-candy.
