Besides that, random movements aren't part of a planned progression or a program.
Try us out if you get a chance. All are welcome.

I took a tour of True Fitness yesterday and the place is pretty awesome, but the price...
Does anyone here have a membership so I can tell them I know a member who is paying a lower price than the one they quoted me ($2,288/month + $3,700 in BS fees)?

so I ended up goin to the Government gym which is 50nt/hour and no contract
50NT sounds good to me.
Where's this govt gym I keep hearing about?
I don't understand why these gyms want contracts and commitments. It's not like they give you a free phone upfront like the cellco's do.
Even if I signed a contract, can they come after me when I leave the country?

I remember checking out the True Fitness gym near Guting. The place was very nice, but the price included things I won't use and machines I don't need. The NTU gym has plenty of free weights and cardio machines. The only complaint is that there is only one squat rack :/
Of course taking FF's classes would be preferable and advantageous for most people but there may be scheduling conflicts...

As a professional trainer (I do this full time), I have appointments from 7am until 9:30pm sometimes and all times in between. Classes have set times but personal sessions are decided between me and the client.
Plus, I open new classes at whatever times people want if they can get a few friends to come along. We opened a new class at 10:30am M-W-F last week because several people got together and wanted one at that time.
Just clarifying for anyone interested.

When you're working out by yourself in a public, practically free place then you're often surrounded by people who are only willing to do the least possible to get fit. It's not exactly a community dedicated to excellence and they can't/won't push you to the next level.
Second, comparing prices is only relevant if the product is exactly equal. For example, my "classes" are really semi-private/small group personal training. They are NOTHING like the fitness classes run in large gyms. I've seen those classes dozens of times and there's no progression, zero movement correction, no goal setting, etc. My sessions have all that. Getting semi-private personal training sessions at the price I charge is a steal. Yet people often compare the price thinking it's just like a normal aerobics class. It's apples vs. oranges.
FWIW I'd choose anything over the local sports centers and university gyms. If fitness is important to you, then make it a priority!
