Here are my options Such as they are:
1) School Gym.
Con: College Gym rats, in the middle of remodel that was supposed to be complete before I started fall semester but it still going on. Crowded at all times. (Unverified but so I've been told)
2) Gold's Gym
Pro: $99 for 99 days, and can transition to month-to-month with no sign-up fee after the 99 days are up.
Con: General Gym Rats. Not inconvenient but not near. 1 week to decide on the $99 offer, otherwise it's 12 month contract @$40/month or Month-to-month with $71 sign-up.
3) Snap Fitness
Pro: Open $24 hours, less expensive then Golds, and near both my house and office.
Con: Not open yet. I drove past and they are setting up the equipment still... no signage up.
Pro: Good equipment, open 24 hours, REALLY near to my house, even the basic model does everything I want.
Con: Either capital investment or on credit at the equivalent of 2 years of Gold's membership rates, and honestly I don't have the best history with using it once I have it, must fight the coat-rack principle.
5) Weight Bench + basic set.
Pro: Open 24 hours also REALLY near to my house.
Con: Capital cost is 1/2 of what the bowflex is, but takes up more room. Not all the exercises I want to do I will be able to do.
So anyone have any thoughts/suggestions/offers?
