    I have been running 4-5 times per week for the last 10 months. I also work one on one with a trainer once a week, focusing on strength training and stretching. I have been working out in a gym for the last month and have become addicted to weights.

    I am getting sick of running in the cold and want to join a gym for the weights and treadmills. Where do you guys recommend? I live close to the Tower and have been a member there before - they have good summer deals. Nubodys is too expensive. Do hotels offer gym memberships? The Westin's gym is fully equipped and the pool is a bonus. Fitness FX?

    Thanks :)

    What he's really saying is not that it's too expensive, he just doesn't want to go to Nubody's because some douche named Greg Goodie goes there. I can't blame him.

    YMCA is sweet, just stay out of the Sauna.

    I really liked it there. Not sure on the prices though.

    FYI 25 bi-weekly is actually 54.17/month :kekeke:

    52/2*25= 650 / 12 = 54.17




    And my deal through work is 17.50 bi-weekly or 37.92/month

    I think I pay like $60/month at Nubody's, but my employer reimburses me the total amount at the end of the year as long as I have at least 90 visits.
