News and a Question about a Gym

Friday, July 20, 2012

So I got a job. It's a bit further of a drive than my old job, and I am terrified of screwing it up, and new jobs are terrifying in general, but I start July 30th in the lab business again. It's exciting. I am a girl that actually likes working. I even missed complaining about a job. I felt so left out.

I would listen to my boyfriend rant about his such and such a customer was just awful, or this one coworker never shows up on time etc and I caught myself saying "At least you have a job to complain about."

But this gig is a nice gig, and it's nice to feel wanted.

As I was driving home from my interview last friday I saw that right around the corner is an LAFitness. A huge one. But their website isn't very user friendly and I've never used a real gym before, so is LAFitness a good gym? Has anyone used it? I would prefer to buy a membership where I wouldn't have to pay every month... It would be nice to burn some calories while I wait for rush hour to conclude....

So are gyms in general worth the money? I would just like to hear about people's experiences good or bad.

Also, I am off to the Thrift Store to see if I can find a dress that doesnt make me feel awful about myself for Nitz's Nana's funeral. She passed away quietly in the ICU two days ago, and I would like to look nice for her service, because she was so wonderful and kind to me. I am glad she is free of this worldly suffering.

    I haven't checked it out yet, but thanks so much for the info, guys! If I decide to take the plunge, I will definitely ask about fees and what they mean!

    I go to a cheapo basic gym and I like it. Be careful of enrollement fees, especially with low monthy charges. Also, they may have an annual charge, (like mine) that you will probably for get about then get pissed when it shows up till you re-read the contract.

Also, I admit, I haven't set foot in the place in 3 weeks. Another reason I stay with el cheapo. I will be going back soon though. I'm spending the rest of this month recooperating from my GI issues and plan to be back at it in Aug.

I have a LA boxing nearby, but I don't think it's the same as LA fitness.

  I don't do gyms, but make sure you read the fine print on the contract. There are horror stories about some places. Go in there and see if they have a few day trial so you can see if you like the place.
