Lifetime Fitness Sucks

I have been a member of Lifetime Fitness for about 6 months. I used to be a member three years ago but quit for a couple of quality reasons:
  1. They didn't know how to cap their enrollment and the place became a zoo
  2. Too many damn tweens running around using the equipment
  3. Too many jerks using their cell phones while on the stair master
  4. Funky odor in the locker rooms
There are two additional reasons that still persist that I am very unhappy about but overlook them because now that I have a kid, I appreciate their child care facilities. The first is the terrible selections on the television. Does anyone really watch the "CW" or "The Golf Channel? There are only 8 televisions, please lets focus on broadcast, sports and news. This will appeal to everyone except for the little battered wife who wants to watch Lifetime channel.

With the limited choices, do you need to show the videos to the lame ass music you are playing. That is my second major beef with Lifetime - the incredibly poor music they play while working out. This is 2007! Do you really think I will get pumped up lifting why listening to "Please Mr. Postman"? Some other crappy songs they play are "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" by Cyndi Lauper, "The Heart of Rock and Roll" by Huey Lewis, and "Straight Up" by Paula Abdul. When recent music is played it is either teeny bopper crap like Aly and AJ or some cupcake light FM song by John Mayer. This is place to exercise and get energized, not romper room or a starbucks.

Lifetime, you are lucky that other fitness centers are filled with grannies and that I hate Bally's even more. Your one saving grace are the water slides. Just make sure no tweens get in my way.
