I go to a gym called Harveys, it is locally owned, I pay $33 a month for both my husband and myself, all the equipment is in great shape, and it also includes tanning...my only complaint is that they only have one set of each dumbell, and usually when I need a certain poundage, someone else has it...other than that, I have never been to a better gym...BILLIE
Home gym, probably payed between 4 and 5 grand for all the stuff I have now. Took a while to build it up though, not all at once. Good part is that I pay no membership fees, the equip stays in good shape, and I can work out in the nude if I feel like it.
ILLEGITIMIS CON CARBORUNDUM!!
(don't let the bastards grind you down)
I love vegetarians, they're a great source of lean protien!
LOL Thats bad. Well, if it makes you feel any better, when I lived in AR the gym I went to was one of those half round metal buildings. There was no AC, and they would have the doors open with big fans blowing.. all while it was 100* out, and 100% humidity!

I know exactly what your talking about (humidity). Our gym is made out of Metal bldg, the AC, never keeps up (keep in mind this is a new facility, bldg and all) if its 70 outside its 80 or higher in the gym.
At least ya'll had fans. We have one fan in the cardio area. It sucks!
I pay 10 dollars a month for planet fitness (used to be world gym). They ran a special at work trying to get members to join. I get access to 5 gyms on the coast of CT. Conditions are pretty good equipment wise but the locker room blows, people keep ripping the doors off of the locked lockers to steal things. Oh and too many high school kids working out in groups of 5, bullshitting and hogging the benches.
I had spent less than 1K on my home gym and loved training whenever, wearing whatever, but I was getting frustrated with my lack of equipment, so I joined a new gym last week. $32/month, its open 'til midnight daily...The equipment is about 5-10 yrs old, the place is small, hardcore and filled with guyz who are larger than the entrance door! I like it!
Life is what you make of it, not what it makes you...TAKE CHARGE!
$0 as I run the corporate program thru work, but for other coworkers it's $325 cdn, and it's an awesome gym, big, lots of windows, clean, a big variety of equipment..then you go to the other side of two, pay the same $$ and you workout in a small basement with old equipment
$350 per year for the local town gym. It has in the last few years added everything that it needs, and it being two minutes away makes it the perfect gym for me.
There is a lifetime fitness that all my freinds belong to that is half an hour away and costs over a thousand dollars for the first year, and 750 each year after that. Not only that, since I go on vacation for two months in the summer, I am wasting 150 dollars as I wouldn't go there. It's unbelievable.
