Which would you recommend please? I'm looking for a cost-effective membership, off-peak which I can fit around work, in Cambridge rather than outlying towns or villages, in an unpretentious environment, away from the uber-perfect yummy mummy types. Both fitness and gym membership would be great but realistically I'm more likely to use fitness classes initially and work my sorrybigass way up to the gym again.
I know I can ring around but I'm weary (and wary) of being invited to "look round" only to be subjected to a sales spiel.
I used to go to the gym but have just done a course at CamYoga and was impressed with the simplicity of it. The teaching was excellent and I did better with that fitness wise than any number of gym sessions.
Try Zumba. It's a great workout but it's all dance routines as well so you don't have to worry about keeping up. I just end up dancing when it's all too much and out of breath! You don't have to sign up to a package. Just turn up and pay.
