    Hey Guys

    Signing up to X-Sport tomorrow. Any tips on membership? I'm told it's like shopping for a Car. Wheelin' & Dealin'.

    LA Fitness bought Bally's... but not the memberships that originated in Ohio, like mine. So, kinda screwed. I could stay with LA Fitness, but they want a $100 intro fee with no plans of remodeling/changing the Bally's I go to and no other LA Fitness close by. So, after 20 yrs at Ballys... maybe time for an upgrade?

    Is X-Sport worth paying more than $30 a month that I have been paying at Bally's shit-hole?

    Yeah. I'm bitter. ;-)

    Downer's Grove Xsport is my "home gym". Without a doubt wheel and deal...there's too much competition for them NOT to - although they might not be as willing right now with all the New Year's resolution memberships.

    I've never paid list price for tanning or training. Equipment is adequate ... I'd give em a 7 out of 10 on maintenance. For me it's all about the convenience.

    Don't know about Xsport in Chicago, but Xsport in Alexandria, VA is banging--clean, open 24x7, tons of plasma TV's, new equipment, hot men, etc.
