Ive gotten the 1 year pass for $100 before there, so i know what its like.
Im doing madcow 5x5, so almost all I need is a rack and those super rare 2.5-10 lb plates.
If you see some asian guy in sweats and a white t at night, hogging lots of small plates at the squat rack, thats probably me.

I use to go there. It's a really nice gym. Has a pool and steam room too. All the equipment is fairly new and the staff is friendly.

yeah interested to know the price as I will be moving to that area and looking for a gym. Not too keen on the Steve Nash or Goodlife on North Road.

Does it get as busy at fitness 2000 compared to those places during peak hours?

I paid around 40 a month. IMO it doesnt get as busy as the other places. I never really waited for anything during peak hours. I think u can try it for a free.

most community centres have a double pool/gym access with the passes you buy with them.

went to fitness world today and signed up for a 12 month membership. total was a little less than $700 in 3 payments. after walking out i realize, that is quite expensive. i have 10 days to cancel for a full refund, which i think i'll cancel at 8 days seeing that fitness 2000 has 6 months for $199. all i'm looking for is a gym with a pool.

I checked out elevation fitness in surrey a couple days ago. One of the nicest/practical/useful gyms I have been to in a long time. Haven't ever been to the oval though.
