Such a Deal......

Almost two years ago when we moved to Houston I joined 24 Hour Fitness to try to maintain my youthful figure. Hah!

I got a pretty good deal where I had to pay the first and last month up front, and a $75 initiation fee. It cost $29 each month after that and I could visit Monday Wednesday Friday and Sunday.

It suited me well until I heard that the new Costco, which is only a mile from our townhouse, would have an LA Fitness gym on the roof. Costco opened in October and I gave notice at 24 Hour in September. I expected the LA Fitness would be open soon after Costco opened but it wasn't.
Well, December came and still no LA Fitness. While I was on a cruise for 15 days I used the gym onboard but Costco's roof gym still wasn't ready in January. Seems they are having trouble with the pool and spa area on the roof.
In January, getting flabbier by the week, I was interested in an offer I saw at Costco. $299 for 2 years at my old 24 Hour gym with zero other fees AND I can visit seven days a week if I want to. Not only that, but the guy told me they are moving in October to a new Premium Sports Spa gym and I will be Grandfathered (love that term ) in because I already belong to the old gym.

Can't whack it can you?
