Default Best gyms to exercise- The YMCA or another Gym

Hello guys, I am new to the forums. I am thinking about starting a weight loss program, but I am not sure which gym I should pick. I currently live in Collierville, and I thought about working at one of the YMCA locations, but some people say that it's a bad place. I asked them why, and they would not go into discussion. Therefore, I wanted to know are there any former members of the YMCA gyms, and if so why did you leave the YMCA? Also, I wanted to know which gyms are you currently at and why they are the best gyms to go to, so I can make my decision.

Planet Fitness on Winchester. It has become very popular just opened. I believe it is under $10 a month but look into it. On membership you can bring atleast 1 person every visit for free.

ATC in Collierville, DAC in Collierville, and the best is Lifetime Fitness since it has a pool and a lot of other things there.

Who cares, the poster asked a simple question.

I don't see anything wrong with YMCA, unless they were gym snobs who like to pay for status, if so then try ATC or Lifetime. Nothing wrong with YMCA, has everything you need, but sometimes there is a huge influx of geriatrics

I think ATC would be fine as long as you aren't looking for classes. As for YMCA, make your own decision after a visit. Remember, all those geriatrics will be us one day soon.

good luck.

Who cares about being made aware of child molesters

You can't judge Lifetime based on this incident. I know many people who live in the Collierville area and are members. It's a bit pricey but has all you'll need for a good workout.
