a small gym go to anytime fitness. it's way cheaper and still has all of the basic things you need to work out. plus, it's open 24/7, which is my favorite thing about it. also, if you tan it's the perfect choice.

I was in the same boat... and I don't like contracts and every gym in town you have to sign one for at least a year. There is a gym in Jackson that is only $25 a month (no contract) just pay for 3 months. But it didn't have a pool (I like to swim) so I joined the SEMO Rec Center.... has EVERYTHING you need plus some. It is $237 a semester or free to students. I believe there is a discount for Alumni as well.

Thank you. I think this one will be my choice. I did some checking. There's nothing it doesn't have. Total package, and it's reasonable!

If you want something different, you might try what was Southeast CrossFit in the old Nearly Perfect building at 414 E Main in Jackson. They're currently undergoing a change of owners, but things will continue basically how they were.

You work out at a scheduled time with up to maybe 10 other people all doing the same workout with weights and movements scaled appropriately. At each workout, there is at least one trainer who supervises, answers questions, and makes sure everybody is working out safely and with correct technique.

It's a good mix of training for strength, endurance, flexibility, power, speed, etc. It's very geared towards well rounded fitness rather than only building strength or only improving endurance. Another benefit of the variety is that you rarely repeat a workout. Rather than rotating the same few workouts week after week, you never know what you'll be walking in to. Really keeps it interesting and exciting.

They also have a group teaching various MMA classes out of the same building in case that's something you're interested in.

Go and ask for yourself...it seems that everyone has to rely on someone else to do things for them. You have legs...go to Anytime Fitness and ask your questions there!

anytime is the cheapest and yes u can tan/shower there. its not a huge facility bc there isnt the big customer base the others have. nice equipment and u can go at 3 am if u want with your own key card. best gym in town if u want to actually workout instead of sit in a hot tub.
I know

Exactly. At Healthpoint, I was paying around $50 per month but I was paying for services that I wasn't even using. I use all if the equipment at anytime fitness and I pay $37/month

I don't think you can beat Osage though it's 2 dollars anytime u go... No monthly fees and it's open 6am to 10pm new equipment, I like how free weights and machines and cardio is seperate so you have your own space and it's male and female friendly... Plenty of machines for both...
