I just moved to Scottdale, a couple of miles away from Decatur. I'd like to join a club. Do you belong to one you like in the area?

We really like the YMCA. It is always clean and they have a wide variety of classes. There is one on Memorial Drive just west of 2nd Avenue and another one near the intersection of Clairemont and N. Decatur roads.

Great suggestion...this is a fabulous facility, in part due to the generous patronage of the Rutland family (old Decatur money) a few years ago. I think it's the best that Decatur has to offer.

I live in Avondale Estates & currently belong to Core Body Decatur (www.corebody.net). It's a little more expensive than some, but it's a smaller (less mega-gym) facility with great people & some classes, plus i can make it "on the way home" for me so that ensures i'll actually go. It's off W. Howard, in Decatur.

There is also a newer, cheaper, 24H facility (but it does not offer classes, etc if you're interested in that) called Snap Fitness (www.snapfitness.com) in Decatur (oakhurst) on West Hill Street. I've never checked it out, but may take a tour one day to see if its worth the cheaper price tag.

Also, there is LA fitness or Bally's (more of the mega-gym feel) off LaVista Road (northlake) exit off 285, which is just a couple of exits away from Scottdale. They may be a bit cheaper, but I found that I never went to LA fitness b/c it wasn't convenient enough for me. But, everyone has their preference for that sort of thing. If I go home, I find I'm not getting back out. Ha.

Hey, thanks for all of your suggestions, folks. Given the wacky hours I'll be working, the 24-hour facility might be the first one I check out. I'm gettin' a gut I need to work off ...

I'd check out the Snap Fitness website. They may be building one even closer to your house.
