Looking for a good gym



Alright, so I'm looking for a good gym in the Mississauga area that doesn't require you to sign up for a year at a time and isn't ridiculously expensive. I was previously a member at Premier Fitness but have gotten sick of that place and especially the people that work there. I'm just looking for somewhere where they will let me come in, work out and then leave without trying to coax me into buying more or giving them any more money on top of my membership. The place doesn't have to be massive and have a million machines, just the basics with some cardio stuff and preferably some tv's around to watch while doing any kind of cardio.

Let's hear where you guys go and what you think. Also, if your willing to how much you've paid for how long.

if you want drop in try going to the YMCA, or YWCA, not sure if there are any in mississauga. They also have cheap monthlys

Your other bet is to look on craigslist for someone's membership, and take it over. Most gyms dont' want month to month memberships, they make money on contracts.

I used to be a member at LA Fitness but I had to change gyms because I work in Brantford now. I don't know anything about the Mississauga location, just that they have one. The Brantford one is nowhere near as nice as LA Fitness was but it has everything I need for $0.49/day. They ask for a void cheque to automatically withdraw the money. I came in with my credit card at first and I couldn't sign up. Every two weeks they pull out $7.xx. If you don't want to commit for a year it cost an extra $30 up front. I don't know if anything has changed since July but I doubt it.

Used to go to LA when it was called IFF, but switched over to Vision on Queensway. Been there for 3 years now. It's not the most glamorous looking gym, and doesnt have a pool, and other things if you're looking for other activites, but its 24hrs, reasonably priced and its got all the machines, free-weights, and cardio machines that one needs.

I never heard of Vision before. How much do you pay per month if you don't mind me asking? PM it to me if you'd rather do that.

Any other suggestions are welcome

UTM gym. The best by far, a bit expensive if you're a non-student but for the facilities you can make use of it's the best.

Ya, the gym isn't that popular. It used to be the old Power house. They charge $350/year which comes out to about $30/month. Can't go wrong.

I have a one week free pass. If you're interested in checking it out, ill give that to you. Just pm me.
