Couch Potato reduction plan

It's time to start going to a gym because other than Contra Dancing, I'm getting little exercise. For me to do it regularly it has to be easy and near. The choices for me are the YMCA or the Boston Sports Club in Central Square which are just a few blocks away. The BSC is a much nicer facility with many more machines of every type imaginable. The Y is pretty grubby but does have a pool. I used to swim there a lot when I was having back problems. The Y will cost $30 a month (I qualify for the Senior Rate) and the BSC costs $71 for the basic plan which will work for me. That is a pretty big difference in price. This BSC doesn't have a pool although I could go to others that have them if I wanted.

I should decide soon before the inertial guidance system kicks in. Also the guy at BSC said that their $299 Initiation Fee would be $99 if I signed up by tomorrow! A bit steep, I'd say, but I suppose it helps keep people going to recoup their initial investment.

Does anyone have any experience with BSC?
