    I would almost say that’s not relaly that high. When I was looking at joining gyms in spring of 09, the Y in Jeffersonville was around $50/month for a single membership. I looked into it again a couple months ago for Josh and I to join together since the Y has a pool and LAC doesn’t and I wanted to start swimming; it was going to be about $60-65 for the 2 of us. So you get a pretty good discount for having more than 1 membership but the single membership I thought was pricey.. but still I would think it would be more in Boston I ended up going with LAC for $30/month which from everyone I talk to is pretty cheap. Anyway, glad you found a close gym!! I have been meaning to get back into yoga, but they only have 1 class now that I can make it to and something always seems to come up. Have fun with your mom!!!
