IPFA International Physical Fitness Association Inc

Gyms are GR8 places to get a shower and clean up while traveling, i.e. Vanaboding/Vandwelling. A workout, swim and a eucalyptus scented steam or sauna ... couldn´t be sweeter. You can actually be healthier living in your car, sailboat, tent, etc.
The gym here cost 20 USD per month on a two year contract. That is 480, or maybe 310 if paid in one payment. If I used 15 times per month, it may be worth it, but still calculating.
I have been practising in too many gyms in my 25 years of life. But there are few gyms that does not contain some important equipments. But the fees will be same as the other good gyms. This is not a good practice. http://www.fashionforplay.com
