Noticed you mentioned the local recreation centers. I haven't met one other Sparker who will even consider the rec centers here (Denver), but most of them are kept nicer than the big name places (I have read quite a few complaints about them) and they offer fitness classes (mostly drop-in), weight rooms, gyms where you can play basketball, etc. Plus they have arts and crafts, some have cooking lessons. There are a lot of classes for youth (the one closest to me is geared toward youth). And most several have pools. Cost for membership is less than the big name places and includes the drop-in fitness classes. I started going to the rec centers 8 years ago after the YMCA wanted $25/month plus initiation fee on their disabled scholarship program and have found the people there much nicer than those I ran into at the larger fitness centers I was at before.
