I joined the Tri-City Court Club today. It has two pools, including one that is always available for laps. (Not just a lane or two - the entire pool!) The membership is $66 a month, which is a little stiff, but not as bad as I'd feared, and it's within my budget. Jim & I quit drinking about a month ago. We were spending $100 a month on alcohol (mostly him, though). So there's room in our budget now.
The club has several studios for group classes, a cardio equipment room, a weight room with a machines and a separate area for free weights. I'm hopeful that making this commitment will increase my likelihood of actually doing strength training.
This gym is 8 miles from my house and 8 miles from work. I'm considering riding there in the wee early hours of the morning to swim before work and then riding to work. I'd have to leave the house around 5 (yes, they're open that early), but I may try that a few times. Talk about hardcore!
