I'm going to join a gym and I'm trying to decide which one.
-is an easy 15-minute drive away (20 if it's really traffic-y)
-offers 2 classes per day on the weekdays, including hula. I could only take 1 class on my trial day, but if I were going to teach a class with a mishmash of Pilates motions, barre work, and simple choreography, it would look a lot like that one.
-lets you use the studio when there are no classes there
-has a lot of swimming classes that are an additional charge, and do not let regular members use the pool when they are in session
-requires a minimum sign-up of 3 months
-is about 5 minutes farther away than close gym is (more if it's traffic-y)
-offers 3-4 classes per day on weekdays, including body ball. I took 3 classes on my trial day and absolutely adored the aquabics teacher (so much fun!), couldn't stand the abs teacher, and don't really remember the yoga teacher.
-does not let you use the studio when there are no classes, and the stretching area gets pretty crowded
-several of my friends are there, but several of my coworkers are there too
-allows a 1-month sign-up
