Definitely go with a prepay if at all possible. The wife and I paid almost $4000 in dues before we finally did a prepay that cost us $1500 for the pair and $100/year afterwards. I wish that I would have done it initially.
thats the way to go if you got $600 to throw down at the beginning. Most people dont though...
As for Benbrook, im sure one will be there soon. Next couple I know of are Rockwall off 30 and Horizon, Eastchase and 30 area, 360 Grand Prarie.
I know the city is courting Wal Mart and Home Depot and mentioned a fitness center was also moving in soon. I figured it's either 24 or LA fitness. With the popularity of the Hulen club and the way over crowded YMCA in Benbrook it'd only make sense. The Hulen club is nice in the mornings but it gets way packed in every night now.
Okay so here's the deal, 24 Hour Fitness is running a special for friends and family of employees. How it works is you only pay $24/mth a for all-club access. It's month to month, no contract, stop whenever you want. This deal waives all the up-front fees on the membership! We only have a certain amount, so first come first serve.
