do you know any good gyms to get a membership at that has a place to drop your kids off at? A couple gyms near me are anytime fitness, YMCA, the Princeton club, and a couple others. I don't remember what else.

Are they worth the money? And around how much does it cost?

I go to LA Fitness... I pay $29.99 per month. I don't do the childcare as I go when the kids are in school, but I do know it is $10 per child per month...the kicker is they only have it for certain hours per day.

 I belong to Gold's Gym.  We pay $40 a month for the membership and child care.  That is for both me and my husband.  I also pay $100 a month for personal training.

We go to the Y. There's only 2 gyms near me, and the Y is the only one with childcare. 

I don't know how much it costs since my husband's employer pays for half of the membership and the other half gets deducted from his paycheck. It's worth it for us because not only do we get the benefit of the exercise equipment, but they also have programs for kids (soccer, gymnastics, t-ball, etc...), and we get a discount on those things because we are members.

If you have a nice Y, it's worth the money. Our Y has two indoor pools (one lap, one with a slide and spray thingys), they have kids Zumba and Yoga in addition to a long list of adult classes, a "jump zone" with inflatables, mother's morning out, parents night out (they cost $10/kid).... all sorts of stuff. Much more than just a gym. They wanted like $70/month for a family membership but DH negotiated them down to $40 for all of us!!

Do they let you tour the gym to see what it's like?

 Do you have a Womens Workout World? I highly suggest them.

I've never heard of then but I'll look it up to see if there is one.

Mine will let you try it free for the first time. You do have to give them some basic info, for safety reasons. I don't think mine will watch kids for free trials though.
