Seeking Gym with Good Child Care for Babies
I am looking to see if anyone knows of a good place to work out where they provide reliable child care for babies...I have a 4 1/2 year old and 10 month old twins, and a strong desire to get back into shape, but lack of child care has prevented me from working out. The gym near our house has a child care facility, where I would bring my oldest in the past, but I don't feel they would be capable of caring for all 3 children...any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated...

Where are you , S.? I am a member of LA Fitness, which has locations in many states. I have always been pleased with their child care, and their membership (including free classes!) is only about $30/month. I leave my 5 year old and 3 year old there while I work out, and my friend leaves her 6 year old, 4 year old, and 9 month old. I have even seen tiny infants in there. There's always enough workers, and they always have coloring pages, games, computer games, a movie, and a play area (like the big ones at fast-food places).
If you get a chance, you can tour one for free and usually get a 2-week membership for free to try it out and see if you are satisfied with it.

24 Hour Fitness has free childcare for members as long as their babies are 6 months or older. They provide up to 2 hours at a time per child. That is why I joined. At the Cypress/290 location, their Kids Klub hours are 8-12 and 4:30-8 M-F. They have weekend hours as well but I cannot remember them at this time.

I wouls have to say the ymca it is a great place for you and your hole family. They really do take great care of your kids the classes there are great they are all free to go to. We pay 74.00 a month for our family to go there. They have separte rooms for each age group they are not all together like some places. I would look into going there I love it there.
