I have been into the 12 oz curl lately! :D
I called Lifetime yesterday and got some info. Their all inclusive (onyx plan, I think) is $119/month plus $5 for babysitting. Bonus is I could take my kid into the outdoor pool with me. The salesguy said it looks like the Four Season. Reviews basically confirmed everything he said...everyone was blown away by how nice it is. The local Y is 89/month and is probably not as nice, but closer to me. Lifetime is about 15-20 minute drive for me. They will give me a day pass to try it out. It has a salon, spa, yoga, a cafe..and what looks like a nice kids area. I just think it's a bit costly so I'm going to think about it before I go...
Ask if they'll be having specials. They're sales guys. You can always drive a bargain for them. And I know they can give more than a day pass. I could have had a week's pass for free.
They change specials from time to time. The seasons are so different here than in St Louis. In Sarasota it's really slow as most of the snowbirds are gone. I've noticed at the Healthplex they have all kinds of deals going on, including the summer free if you refer another guest. Maybe if you have any friends who are interested, you could work out a good deal.
I'm learning that everything is negotiable. :D
They also had swimming classes for the kids and swim teams.
The food was mostly healthy stuff. SR hated it: I loved it. :D
Yes they do...but that's not for me....I'll be taking yoga, pilates, maybe some sort of aerobic class, like zumba, but mostly swimming...followed by the hot tub of course.:cool:
They also offer massage, facials, mani's pedi's...sauna, steam room....I'll be hitting that up too. :D
Also, they will watch little hawk for 2 hour stretches...
Too bad you're not in this area...we could do the buddy system...this is too expensive for my friends.:(
I really miss that place. Sarasota is too small of a market for them to build here. Sigh. I just really dislike the place where I have the membership. It really makes me realize that I'm living in God's waiting room here in Sarasota.
