    Don't do it. I've heard so many horror stories about Bally's.

    There isn't anything else in your area? Gold's, World, something even non-chain?

    Planet Fitness is a total joke, don't even try :o if you don't believe me, go read their website :rofl: they're INSANE.

    I'd go with the World's.

    fuck bally's. i got a 3 year contract for $700, which isn't too bad. i mainly got it because the sales rep told me that every year after the 3rd year, it'd be ~$100. i just read through my contract a couple months ago, and nowhere does it say that. it just offered the same deal, which is another 3 years for $700. i need to get a hold of the branch manager for the 2nd time, as the bastard didn't even call me back after he said he would.

    their policies and sales reps are a bunch of punk biatches. don't even attempt to sign up with them. yes i guess it's partially my fault that i didn't read the entire contract while signing, but the thing was long, and the $100 after the 3rd year is a common offer from other gyms, so i didn't think that'd be an issue.

    Damn, that sucks. And worries me that even decent gyms may be hard to find in the future.
