Gym shopping

I am currently deciding between a few Gyms around the apt.
So far I've visited :

3 x Sports & Health clubs in the area(cheap but yuck, yuck, yuck!)
Mint Fitness ($$$$)
Vida ($$$, inconvenient)
WSC ($$)

Yet to visit:
The Y (semi inconvenient)
Fitness First (semi more inconvenient)

So far I've noticed most gyms forces you to sign up for a yearly contract and charge you a huge up-front cost ($90~200, depends on gym), but lets you cancel with minimal fee if you move (~$30). I personally think the huge upstart cost is outrageous.

Is there a gym at work or in your apartment building (if in one)?

You can always wait to get an ad in the mail or in the Washington City Paper where they waive the initial fee. I see ads like that all the time.

There's a super tiny one in my apt building. It's only got one combo weight machine and a few treadmills. It gets very claustrophobic when anyone else is in there.

WSC in dupont is literally in the building across the street from my apt, so that works ;)
