After a few trial visits, Nicole and I decided to join the East Valley YMCA. It’s reasonably nearby, inexpensive, and the staff are very nice and helpful. Best of all for the geek in me is that their machines have this neat computerized system called FitLinxx. You get an identification # which you type in when you start using a machine and it keeps track of what you do and how you’re progressing on your pre-established workout plan. It looks like you can also access your data from the Web so it could be fun to write some code to suck the data down from the Web.
