    And I have made my decision, after looking at both very carefully, it's going to be Anytime Fitness! Now for me, it's not about the workout, it's about the showers. Some PF isn't 24/7 and for me I need a place to take showers 24/7. So ATF wins!

    That looks like PF with the purple gear logo on the wall. I love it though, lets go to the gym so we can sit in a comfy chair hahah.

    Yeah thats another good point. Also AF seems to be a less popular gym so wont be as crowded.

    I know i see PF's in big shopping centers where you could probably park a semi, so straights should have any issue, but i just hope that most AFs will have a big enough parking lot to accommodate us.

    Wanting to throw this out and see what everyone thinks. I was just thinking, since I'm going to sign up at ATF, would it be crazy to go ahead and sign up at PF also? PF is only $22 a month.

    If for some reason that ATF is not close and PF is right around the corner then I could go there. Just another ace in my pocket. ATeam chime in!

    Now I must let everyone know, I don't use truckstop fuel. I go to the Shells, Exxon, BP ect. This is the reason for the showers. And I'm paying $12 to $15 a day just for showers. Just a little more info.

    It's no more than $40 a month. In all it should be $65 a month for both. Read post #46, I added for this reason.

    I'll go ahead and warn you, if your going into a Str8, ATF will be hard. The parking lots are small due to being in strip malls like you stated.

    according to that PF vs AF article on page 2, AF is $40 a month plus another $40 in "registration fees". PF is $20 for the membership we need, and the registration fees depend on the club you sign up at i guess.

    Yeah i figured as much. Hopefully it won't be too much of a hassle, possibly can find parking within a quarter mile and get a nice warm up jog there. Still not totally sure about St8 for an owner or van as O/O anyway.
