  • It may boil down to which place would you be more inclined to stay with. Does one appeal more visually, or crowds? It looks as though the Y has more opportunity for other kinds of exercise so you won't get bored- the pool especially.

  • Choose the one that makes the most sense to be a seamless part of your life, that is near other errands, etc. Because you want to eliminate excuses for not going, trust me!!

  • I'm going to take a tour of both of them some time this week. I can't really commit until after my next paycheck.
