    My new gym Vs. my old gym

    So I got a letter in the mail last month from the YMCA that they're raising their monthly fee from $42 to $45/month. It wasn't the extra $3 that bothered me, but it got me thinking, maybe there's another gym that offerred lower prices. I found a locally run place that's like half the price. Here's the pros and cons:

    YMCA: $45/month
    New Gym: $22/month

    YMCA: One squat rack
    New Gym: Three of them

    YMCA: Racquetball Court, Kids Karate Classes, Swimming pool (I didn't use any of that crap anyway)
    New Gym: Nothing but Weights and cardio

    YMCA: Steam Room, Sauna, Hot Tub
    That's the only thing I'll miss about the YMCA, but not worth an extra $20/month

    YMCA: Wrinkled old men walking around in the locker room with their balls hanging out
    New Gym: Ten times more good-looking women than the YMCA


    Yep, I'm glad I made the switch.

    All that matters is the fact you get to workout while staring at hotties in skimpy tights.

    .. oh, and you save money!

    Yeah, YMCA has been over priced for about 10 years. Used to be great when it was really true to it's charter.
    Now in pain, only working out the walking sticks.

    The YMCA by my house is $54 a month!! I thought the whole idea of the Ymca was to be a affordable place for people to come too. Thats crazy!

    Thats funny.. My gym here in Denmark didnt raise my price every month when they raised their prices.

    A cool policy, at least for me =)

    Good thing it doesnt work the other way around =P
