Home gym. Kinda high sign up fee, low dues (bought used equipment and keep adding stuff), never a wait, instead of time driving, parking, etc, i work out.
oh ya, dramatic results!

Sorry, I now this is the Guys Lounge. Had to comment though. Did YMCA and I liked them for awhile. They base what they charge for individuals on your income rather than a flat rate for everyone. That worked for awhile. Then they changed their hours. They were hardly ever open which didn't work for me. I went searching for better deals and better hours. Switched to SNAP. Open 24 hours. I can go anytime and to any SNAP around.

Freedom Valley YMCA. Five sites, and they're ALL awesome!
The YMCA, I like that they have a pool and arthritis class along with the equipment room and a gym.

24 Hour Fitness. It's and ok gym, but my health insurance pays for $20 a month of my membership, so that's hard to turn down. Plus it makes me go at least 8 times a month - which isn't a problem, but it's a good motivator.

I have belonged to 24hr fitness for years now. I like having a 24Hr gym because on nights when I cant sleep or I'm restless I can go to the gym instead of sitting up watching tv or eating out of boredom.

Belong to a locally owned facility called The Refinery. Of all the places in town, it has the best selection of exercise equipment and free weights. The price is a bit higher than others, but feel the extra choices makes it worth it.

Health Trax. It's a little expensive but they have plenty of equipment and it's close to my house.
I'm enjoying a discounted trial of a kickboxing gym right now, but I'm looking into trying a gym I haven't heard of before, End Result Fitness? I don't know how many of them are around, I live in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Has anyone dealt with them before? I'd love to know what I'm getting into before I buy.

Synergy, Long Island...24 hours...loads of equipment and trainers who help...lost 78 lbs since July...
Powerhouse gym.. it's awesome. plenty of cardio equipment, and free weights. a mix of muscleheads, and the ladies.. the owners are friendly, and remember me. Not Anything bad that I can think of.. they close at 6 on Sunday..a little too early..that's it
I am not part of a gym right now, but I worked at a Gold's Gym for 7 years and was the manager for the last 2 of those. Once you decide the exercising you want to do you will be able to make pretty quick decisions as to which one you want to be a part of. The realization is that the name on the building is not the most important part, it is the people inside that count. So see if you can get a free day pass at each location and if you can go around the same time you think you will do on a regular basis ( especially a monday or wednesday as those are the two busiest days so they will give you a better realization). If the atmosphere seems positive, the equiptment seems to be clean and working properly then it might be the right place. Also if you have already made the decision that this is a long term commitment then ask the sales person if they have discounts if you pay for the entire year up front or if you pay a year off in 5 months or less. Just some ideas, hope that helps!

I belong to Planet Fitness but once I can afford it I'm definitely going to get a YMCA membership.
Not currently a member of any gym, but enjoyed the YMCA up until a few months ago when the schedule got to busy too go (too many kids in spring sports). Hated it during January during new signup time and all the people joined, but was good the rest of the time.
I need to join a gym.. I have all the major gyms around me (golds, world, ballys, 24hour fitness, la fitness) and want to find a good one.. What gym do you go to? And what do you like and dislike about it?
