My neighborhood has at least 20 uncommon fitness centers, gyms, or CrossFit centers.
Their prices are close each month for their membership fees.
I thought long & hard before making the decision to join a fitness center. What I mean is, the thought of definitely working out in front of strangers wasn’t thrilling. Still, the fact that there are many amenities in the same place is exactly why I moved forward. I found a gym that has many good amenities included in their membership fees. The gym offers a variety of individual workout machines prefer free weights, cycling machines, rowing machines, & ellipticals. This particular gym also offers group fitness classes at no additional charge. If you desire to have one on one time with a personal trainer, then you have to sign up for a class time but there is no extra charge. I have never taken one of the group fitness classes, however I am thinking about it. My favorite part about this fitness center is the sauna & massage rooms. They are free to use at any time, day or night. Nothing feels better than a massage or an hour in the steam room. I also prefer the fact that I get a free pass to the YMCA pool for lap swimming. I prefer to swim as a physical interest, however the pools often close in winter. With the free pool passes to the YMCA, I can use the indoor pool because it’s open in the winter so I can continue swimming laps & practicing my breaststroke.
