Trying to find a gym

I am trying to find a gym. I have looked at Workout Anytime, American Fitness and BodyPlex. I love the lay-out of BodyPlex, but not the price.
My husband is interested in possibly joining, which is great...he likes Workout Anytime. BodyPlex has a great spinning class that I am interested in. A house divided :)
Free passes to each gym should help us decide.

Very pleased...

looking back on last year I am very pleased at what was accomplished. As a new runner, I had a misconception that running was for "other" people. I often ask myself, self-who are the other people? Self-esteem was something I struggled with growing up, so it often takes me longer to do a task. Last year, I became a runner and a triathlete and I look forward to new goals this year.
On a totally different subject-I am thinking about joining a gym. I would have access to a treadmill and a bike at the same time. Any comments

Miles report

It has been a few days since my last post, although I have been running.
I did 8 miles on Saturday and I did speed work today.
I am planning on running the Polar Bear at Johnson's Ferry Baptist Church on Jan. 26th
In the meantime, swimming takes a backseat (brrr...) and I haven't been out on my bike in a while.
