Picking a gym?

I have a choice of 2 in my area 1 is open 24/7 is $19.99 a month has free child care for 1 hr. but has a $50 enrollment fee plus a $15 annual fee...the other is not open 24/7 has child care for an hr. free for the first kid and $2 a kid after it would be $4 a day for me has no other fees and is also $19.99 a month...soooo which 1 do i my BF's ex can watch my kids while I go workout if she is free...she doesn;t work so unless she has plans I won;t need the childcare service.

  • You do not mention what equipment or classes they have I would pick the one that has things I would enjoy

  • Are you planning to go for only a few months, a few years or forever. I'd pick whichever is cheapest in the long run.

  • The gym that's the closest, and the one with the best childcare benefits have always been the deciding factors for me!

  • Go with whatever you like. Personally I hate going to the gym. I do Insanity, and I'm starting ChaLean Extreme, for less than a gym membership I can have the toughest workout in my own home. I mean, heck, I sell beachbody as a coach....but do what you like. If you want to save money perhaps buy the Zumba workout system online (it's not beachbody)...I have a 16 month old and a 7 year old and I've done Insanity right with them in the same room, day or night...I have less excuses when I don't have to leave the house.

  • I've tried workingout at lasts for a good week and then i skip a day and then another day and then before i know it it's been a month and I'm gaining weight again...Going to the gym I will have to go my BF is paying for it and would kill me if I wasted his money and once I'm there I will have to exercise so I can't just skip it.
