Really? I love Gold's. I've been a member there for years in other states, but I've always lived in places where there was only one. I didn't realize you could go to more than one with the membership. Now I know what gym I'm joining. Thanks everyone!

Welcome to our team! I agree with the things MJ said about the gyms. I'm not sure about the other two, but Gold's lets you go to many of the different Gold's Gyms around the city, and is fairly reasonably priced, a fraction of what you might get at Lifetime (which I believe is over $100/month).

Hi Alison and welcome to the team! Your first winter in Texas will be so different from up North!

As far as gym memberships go, I will list 3 that are easy access to you in order of price from lowest to highest, along with amenities. These are the 3 I am personally familiar with.

Planet Fitness: No frills, clean, fairly quiet. Most all of the standard machines and a decent weight room. Very clean restrooms and showers. The downside to them is they don't offer classes and don't have a pool, but you cannot beat the price.

Gold's Gym: A little noisier, usually a larger staff, most have a pool and sauna and a wide variety of classes. Usually have an excellent weight room.

Lifetime Fitness (there is one really close to you at 281/1604) is really the best option for those with a sports/fitness mindset. They have rock climbing walls, basketball, swimming, tennis, squash, racquetball, mixed combat arts, classes ranging from yoga to strength to cardio.

Hope this helps a little and again, welcome to San Antonio and our team. We look forward to getting to know you better!

Hi everyone! My name is Alison, and I have moved to San Antonio recently from New England. I'm 27 and live with my boyfriend and our cats. I'm also a vegetarian, but my boyfriend is not.

I've been on SparkPeople for years and quit but now I'm back. I starting out in 2007 at 230 pounds and got down to 160 by 2010. I felt amazing. However, after two years of grad school and my first desk job, I have shot back up to 200. Before grad school, I had a very physical job and went to the gym regularly. I am having a really hard time now with motivation.

Gym recommendations would be appreciated! I live off of 280 between 410 and 1604.
