    my free 8 week run at Bally is almost over and I'd like to join a gym but I understand that it is *much* cheaper to do so as a friend of someone that already has a membership. (or at least at Bally, they told me that I could join for $45 a month and get a friend to join for $10 a month)

    I'd really like to keep on with my current progress and would like to go to a gym to do it- less distraction, more motivation, a break from the house/fam etc...

    anyone wanna help me out? :x:

    its not that bad, hasd a power rack, a cable crossover, and a place to bench and DL, so, it works for me. But I would get sick of it if i had to be there constantly.:hsd: Is bally's 45.00 a month? how much is lifetime or whatever? what about 24HR?

    bally is only 45 a month if I join before my free 8 weeks is up. :(
    lifetime? HA! they're 110 a month or some crazy shit. I would LOVE to get a membership at lifetime.
    edit: i'd really like 24hour since there is one close to my house. not sure what their prices are though :hs:

    My YMCA isn't bad at all.. I go after 7PM, so it's not full.. after 8PM it's basically me and 2-3 other people. We have 4 Olmpic bars, 2 flat benches for benching, 1 incline for benching, 2 incline benches by themselves, 3 flat benches by themselves, a power rack, a smith machine, a cable area with everything needed to perform all the exercises I need to do.. we have a chest supported row "machine" as well, and ~6-8 various BB's. It's pretty good considering I pay $26/month and get to use the gym (no one uses the rack at all when I'm there) the basketball court, the pool, sauna, steam room, jacuzzi, etc. Good deal and a good place to work out...
