You've got to be the one to make the call there. If you've checked out their child care area and sanitation procedures and you are comfortable with them, go ahead. Most gyms do not require previous child care experience in their staff, but most require a background check. That being said, employees aren't always too experienced with kids. I'd check it out and see what you think. In the meantime, try to do workouts that can be done from home or at the park. FiTV has great programs you can DVR, most digital cables have on-demand workouts, and the websites for Self, Fitness and Shape magazines offer a lot of great workouts for outside of the gym! Good luck!
