    I joined my gym because they waved the signing fee. Plus they have a pool and a climbing wall and saunas and steamrooms and tennis courts and racqetball courts and hot tubs and a cardio cinema and tons of person flat screen TV's and an excellent weight room and a 1/4 mile indoor track.

    Also, shit tons of smoking hot jailbait. And tanning. And beer on draft.

    The one I go to is an Xsport Xpress so they have limited amenities, no pool or track. They didn't really have that many squat racks, I think only two.

    that's a good idea. was there a minimum for how long you have to be there for?? (like "prepay at least two years and get a $50 gift card"?)

    damn that place looks frickin awesome. there's nothing like that whatsoever in the san francisco area. you figure a city with relatively active people would have nice fitness centers, but there really isn't. i guess it doesn't help that property value is sky high here.

    I agree, I don't use half that shit i was just e-cock flexing.

    I've only seen one other person do anything other than smith or quarter squats there and the place is loaded with moronic kids that talk about their biceps and current crushes in groups of 3-5 in the way of the DB racks.

    I was going to join a more hardcore gym called Speedy's (more of a PL gym but I'd rather lift with guys that think I'm a vagina and know what they are doing) but they went under and got pussified by the new buyers. :wtc: It was only like 10 bucks a month too.

    I use the campus gym but I won't be able to for the summer so I'll be looking for gym deals too. usually the 3 month deals pop up plus I can try to get a college discount :o

    you get it after 36 days as a member. When you sign up, you pay the registration fee ($50 :ugh: ) and the first month ($20) and the last month. If you're there for longer than 36 days, they give you the card.

    I think a gift card or clothing would be good. However, my gym doesnt offer shit and I think the memborship is REALLY expensive...I get it for free because I work there.

    I just wished there would be a not-so-shitty gym near me.
