Yes, my wife and I have a membership to LA Fitness. We initially had a membership to a local gym called Fitness For Less, but that gym ended up closing down. After that, we got a membership to our local community center. That was cool, it was the newest center in our county, but the hours weren't great (didn't open until 9 am during the week and closed really early on the weekends), plus the monthly fee was pretty high.

After that, my wife and I just signed up for LA Fitness. They have fantastic hours, a ton of equipment, a pool, basketball court and sauna, plus the classes are included with your membership fee.

no. I used to before I had a child, but since then I set one up in my basement. I don't like taking the time to get to the gym and back when that could be half my workout time.

Nope (although as a student, I do have access to our school's rec center). I know from past experience that I am terrible at keeping a commitment to go to the gym regularly. That might change this time around, but I'm not quite ready to take that leap yet.

I actually have 2. We are fortunately to have an on-site fitness center at my place of employment, but it isn't free. It's extremely economical, and the amenities and service are phoenominal. However, I don't live anywhere close to where I work, so weekends and evenings became a problem. So - I also have a membership at 24Hr fitness that allows me to utilize multiple locations, depending upon the class or amenities I need. I workout a minimum of twice a day, 6 days a week (just one 'off' day a week), sometimes 3 times a day - so having multiple workout locations is a necessity for what my goals are.

I don't have a gym membership anymore, as I found it too expensive. Luckily I have free weights, exercise videos and a treadmill at home, so I really don't need a gym to stay fit.

I did belong to a gym until my husband retired also. Now we have a room fixed up as our gym, so I work out at home.

No gyms to join near me, but I do have 2 swimming pool memberships, one for summer, one for the school year, and we have a local medical clinic that has gym equiptment they let us use on a donation basis - I use it 3xs a week thru the school year, less in summer since I swim daily and walk or work outside more.
