    The current place I go to is literally 3 minutes away but it's shit and I'm looking for another gym. I found this amazing deal through Costco. It's with 24 Hour Fitness and the price is an astonishing $299 for two years. Only thing is that it's about 6 miles away. I'm used to going to gyms that are within 5 minutes of driving lol.

    From what I hear, 24 Hour Fitness is a really nice place and the deal is amazing. Usually it's something like $855 per year for just one club.
    Any comments on 24?

    I was going to sign up at LA Fitness but fuck driving across town every day. My gym is kinda crowded but its better than driving to the complete opposite end of town.

    At home, it's in the spare room.
    At work, it's about 7 minutes away.

    BTW, my 24 Hour Fitness membership is $50/year. I had to pre-pay 3 years up front at around $500 and join with my brother, but it worked out better than Costco in the end. $50/year for life now.

    No you pre pay for the first 3 years and then the re-ups on subsequent years are $50.

    mine is a 15 minute walk away, but it's not open 24 hours every day of the week (wtf) so the next closest 24/7 facility is about 5 miles away.

    It was $500 up front for the first three years then $50/year to renew after that. I've paid $50/year for the last 4 or 5 years.
