    I need to do something, I am so sedentary. In my town there is both a Curves and a Ladies of America. Anybody have experience, either good or bad, with either one?

    [​IMG] My mom was kicked out of Curves - she did too many sit-ups/didn't do the exact number they 'suggest' their clients do. [​IMG]

    Is there a YMCA? High level of expertise and no long-term contracts! [​IMG]

    Where do you live? These gyms are only in select areas of the Northeast and are quite expensive (the one down the street from me is $60 a month), but if you have the money they are sooo worth it.

    Excellent setup, clean facilities, and if you're in the corporate world it's a decent place to network since executives go there often. A friend of mine had a trial membership to one location in Boston, and they had a basketball court inside the gym... where the floor was just one giant trampoline!!!

    Thanks spunkychicken. I checked and there is one just three miles away. It seems expensive, but I was considering Curves, at $29 a month, but the zumba classes were $5 additional. So if I did two zumba classes a week, it would be the same as joining NYSC. Hmmm. Must do more research.
