went to nautilus for a week ... now at Best for 2 weeks ... after that I'll try Snap. I want to make sure I'm comfortable where ever I choose so I'll like going back. It can be really frustrating trying to decide ... I won't bother with Planet ... the location of the other 3 is much better ... I can almost walk to any of them ... but know I'll drive!

Planet fitness is an awesome gym. I loved it but dropped my membership because the location is so inconvenient. I'm not allowed to drive due to uncontrolled diabetes , so it was tough getting there. But I do highly recommend it! Very nice environment.

Yeah, I'd go there, except it's completely on the other side of town from me (about 25 minutes). Not an inspiring distance to travel just to have access to some equipment. I'm challenging myself to see how fit I can get (and how creative I can be) by just exercising at home with a few dumbbells and videos this winter.

I'm a member of Planet Fitness. The facilities are nice, and it's only $10 a month, which is awesome. My problem is the location is not very convenient for me, which gives me a very easy out.

Friends of mine belong to Planet Fitness on upper Peach. They seem to like the facilities, as well as the reasonable monthly fee (I think it's only $10/month, which is WAY less than the Y).

Has anyone shopped around for a fitness center ... trying to decide the benifits of those in hte area ... and pick one to use. I've belonged to the Y and Nautalus in the past and liked them both ... anyone have good experiences other places?

I'm also looking for a used stationary bike ...

We used to have a great group that walked on Presque Isle ... that was 4 years ago though so I don't know who is still around. at one point I was a team leader in this group that was great for quite a while but I got away from it and SP. Tried to get back a couple years ago ... I'm hoping now that I've retired I will have more time to keep SP working for me.

I would love to meet to walk ...

I like your idea of walking around the peninsula.

I never did jump back on here on Monday to set up a get-together, sorry. The best day for me to get together is Thursdays, as my hubby is off work and can keep my kids at home. Anyone who would like to get together for some exercise, please message me.

I always seem to forget about this site. And then out of nowhere I remember it. Does anyone know where to look to find some groups to walk with or anything like that? I have a goal and I'm done messing around its time i get my act in gear and reach my goals.

Welcome back, Lou!

You were one of the first people to greet me when I joined the Erie Sparkers. Glad you're back and on track.

Hi everyone, I am still here. Ok, so no one knows who I am LOL I joined a LONG time ago (it seems) and did nothing. Joined again last year, did great, dropped a nice chunk of weight and got a bit more healthy, then life happened, moved, joined two families together and well, fell off the wagon so to say. Back again now, and plan on making the third time a charm!!! Hope to be more active in the groups. :-)

Happy Tuesday!!

OK, I'll wait until Monday (after the weekly digest goes out) to see if anyone else is interested, and then we'll set something up.

I'm up for a get together. I was so excited when I joined Sparkpeople to find a local team. Nothing like getting additional support from people in your community. I was disappointed to see that the team isn't active. Let's shake it up and get things going!

Would anyone be interested in getting together to get some light exercise as we get to know each other?

In the past I've considered posting a get together just to go walking at the peninsula or something, but I hesitate to put something like that in a public online forum. Maybe we could use sparkmail to figure it out when and where. If anyone has any interest, let me know.

This is the only one of my teams I can always count on to show "no new posts" when the weekly digest hits my inbox.

It's sad, really, because it would be nice to connect with people online who are familiar with what's available around here for fitness, the climate, etc.

I am very active on Spark People in general, and have had a lot of success in getting healthier over the past year. Maybe we can give this team a kick in the pants!

There are at least a few members on this team who are active, but as a team, we're pretty quiet.
