Not sure, my company subsidizes the cost. I pay $30 a month for the Union Station FFC.

Yes, I have lockers, showers, pool, etc.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

lifetime has lockers and showers and their facilities are nice. I used to work out there but I tired of the crowds. I pay $55 a month at HealthTrack near my home and they also have nice facilities from a locker room standpoint. This was my biggest gripe when I worked out at Powerhouse, now Xsport.

So, how much does it cost you a month? $5,000 on equipment spread over a 5 year period - $83/mo plus utilities and space... hmmm

I have a Powertec Basic Trainer and a Powertec Multi Workbench. Don't have to leave home, machines are always available and clean.

No hotties walking around though...

I also have multiple showers. No lockers, but several walk-in closets.

I pay $14 a month to have 24/7 access to the gym in my building. Actually I think I cancelled it months ago but I still have the key. Anyway it's lame and I never go, but if I wanted to it has some basic machines and free weights. No locker or showers but I have that about 1 minute away at my home.

We have a badass outdoor pool, $350 for the season.

Tennis courts are great, $75 key deposit, I have no one to play with.

Never thought about it that way.

A heck of a lot more than $5000 in equipment.
Plus the square footage.

BUT... it is at HOME.

$59.95 a month for Lifetime for myself and my daughter. Includes day care, fitness classes, towels, locker rooms with full amenities, indoor pool with water slide, outdoor pool with water slide, hot tubs, sauna, climbing wall, basketball courts and I'm sure more that I'm missing. A lot of amenities I don't use but for the amount of equipment they have and the fact I've never once had to wait to get on a piece of cardio equipment, it's so worth it.

40 bones a month at XSport. All the same crap as every other gym. Lockers are a bit tight for my heterosexual liking though.

You would just offer that up?

Anyway, I get charged for the gym regardless of if I use it or not. Has showers and lockers but if you want your own its $20/semester. If it wasn't so far from home I'd go more often. Facilities aren't bad though.

I got 6 months left on my 2 years prepaid with Ballys and I can't wait for it to be over. This one on Cumberland sucks monkey balls. It's over crowded, dirty, smelly just plain disgusting. Hate it and next time I wont mind spending extra few bucks for a decent gym. And hardly got any hot girls. Which don't help with that little bit of extra motivation when you'r feeling lazy.
