    So much people there today. It was an "open house" this weekend. Non-members can go in and check it out. Get a workout in. Go to the spa, swim, yadda yadda.

    I wish I was a member, but I can't afford $59.99/month :(

    Everything's so shiny and new. I want to sweat all over those new machines :wtc:

    It's funny to me though because 98% of all those people there will never come back :mamoru:

    Oh and I got my bf% checked there. Roughly 9.8%. Down from 11.7 at the beginning of October. And I weigh more now :big grin:

    i love the lifetime that is here. But it's incredibly expensive, closer to 100 a month than 50. I dont remember the exact number, I just remember nearly fainting when they told me.

    I go to the Lifetime in Warrenville IL. It's a fucking zoo as of late. Really bad crowds this year after New Years. The losers haven't given up as quickly this year :wtc:

    I still go all the time though because it's the best facility in the area.

    It's $50 a month for the Lifetime Fitness in Columbus, OH. What's amusing is that they offer you free valet parking when you come. About as funny as that 24HR Fitness in California with the escalators in front of it.

    World Gym is $35 a month ( 1 year contract), no valet parking. :)

    I love the two Lifetime Fitness gyms here in Northern VA. I live right in the middle from both of them. The Centreville one is way to crowded though with to many people. You have to wait in line for a locker, shower, free weights and any gym machine....sucks. And there are different machines at both locations so that's another reason why I switch up.
    Anyone else have the rock climbing wall at their Lifetime?

    Membership isn't to bad. Its $55 here now, up from $50. The thing that kills people is the startup membership cost.

    Yes, ours has an impressive rock climbing area. A good portion of the building is all rock wall.

    I pay $59 a month btw. I'm thinking about changing to this "World Gym" place which is right by my house and is only $1 a day if I sign up for a year. :eek3:
