Well, I'm looking to sign up for a gym cause of the lack of area around where I am to go running w/o either being hit by a car, truck, or running into something (ok, maybe i'm a bit over on how hard it is to run around here.. but ya.. plus, I like to run... and yet, I hated running the mile back in high school lol) Anyways. Near my house, theres a 24 Hour fitness and a Bally gym within 5 minutes.. but I'm not sure which is considered better. I'm mostly interested in using the treadmills, some lightweight lifting, etc. Times aren't entirely a concern for me... I know 24 Hour fitness, well, some gyms (i know the gym near my house is) 24 hours opened, so making it pretty convinent to go run or whatever, whenever i want. Not so sure about the bally's gym times, but I'm mostly free around 9-10pm so I guess if its opened around then for about an hour, I'm good. Any opinions?
