I am looking for a good gym in the Stone Oak area, and from the threads I have read so far, Lifetime and Spectrum appear to be good choices.

Which gym would you recommend? I'm a single, active 27 year old guy. I would be working out at least 3x a week, in addition to swimming and yoga/or tennis. Do you have to pay extra for swimming and yoga at either of these places? Also, can somebody please let me know what I should expect to pay per month for a single adult membership? Thanks a lot!

Both are good choices and honestly, very similar. I would choose the gym most convenient to you... and I bet they are priced very similarly as well. (no clue on price for a single adult, sorry!!)

Lifetime is about $85 a month with taxes, for new members. No extra charge for swimming or basketball court. Lots of fitness classes are free--unsure about yoga though. I don't think they have a tennis court, but racquetball is free. I love Lifetime, but it is a miserable pit from hell on Monday nights (less so on Tues-Thurs, but still bad) because of how busy it can get.

I try to go in the mornings or mid-afternoon as often as possible. Nights after 8-9pm aren't too bad during the week either.

I am a Lifetime member and love it. Yes it does get crowded in the evenings but I go at 5 am in the mornings because I participate in the TEAM Fitness classes which do cost additional $$. I am not sure what the fee is now to join since my husband and I have been members since 2006. There are some yoga classes that are part of the free fitness classes but if you pay additional $$ you can get reformer pilates or some other yoga classes. I haven't particpated in these classes.

spectrum memberships are in different tiers, the spectrum at evans/281 is approx $60 per month for a 1 year contract, being a member of this tier (2nd tier) is at the same tier as the alamo heights gym and will entitle you to all spectrum gyms (except the concord and rogers ranch gyms,those are tier 1, very similar to lifetime in amenities and most likely price as well) and eventually all golds gyms in the SA.

yes spectrum did get bought out by golds gym but golds gym members will not have access to spectrum gyms unless they upgrade, from what I have been told.

from what you ask i would look for something with tennis courts, not sure if lifetime has this nor if the tier 1 spectrum gyms have tennis courts, they may have racquetball courts but not tennis courts, they may be tough to find

if your single i would recommend either, it really depends on your location/driving distance and what class/activities you plan to participate in

I want to thank all of you for your opinions/ advice. Lifetime looks best suited to my needs, and that is the option I will most likely be pursuing. Thanks again, hope all of you are having a good weekend!
