Anyone know of a gym in town that is not constantly overcrowded? My Aerofit (Trufit) membership that I have had for years is almost up and looking for other options. Since the buyout, people have been coming out of cracks of the walls...

Just find one of the relics that still try to charge $30 To $40 a month. Although they will likely change to lower rates or close soon.

Can't help you, but hopefully there will a gym at the Jones Crossing development (as rumored).

The Resolutioners are being particularly persistent this year for some reason...

If you need free weights, try Brazos Valley Barbell.

If you have no need for cardio machines, I second Brazos Valley Barbell. Talk to David. No frills just lots of weights and room to work.

Your garage is probably not crowded.

I'll second this. I worked with him for 2 years and he is a great guy and very knowledgeable.

I love Snap Fitness. I typically go very early morning, but have tried other times and never find it over crowded.if it is busy people seem to rotate on and off equipment quickly. It has been a little busier with the new year's resolution people. Not the cheapest but clean and secure. Folks are friendly enough but seem most interested in their workout. Clientele leans to over thirty.

The Bryan Golds rarely seems crowded, even around 5-6. The College Station one is a different story.

When is the new Tru Fit at Southwest and Texas supposed to open? That should alleviate some of the stress.

Not sure when opening; I don't know if I will stick around to see. I may see if I can go month to month until I find something new.

Thanks for the recs everybody.

I talked to an employee of the Villa Maria location and they said the original open date was supposed to be in March, but it is looking more like May now.

I have been going to Biosystem Fitness for almost 2 years. It costs a little more but the groups are small and the owner will personalize the workouts to your needs. Biosystem Fitness Check out the website. The initial consultation is free. It is in the TJ Max shopping center next to Toys R Us.

I invested in a garage gym for this very reason. Also, I don't have snowflakes telling me to lower the weights lightly. LOL Home gym is the only way to go! Plus you can avoid all the germs and stuff, too, because you know they don't clean the equipment.

Just stacking on Trufit for the OP, it is very overcrowded during peak times. I try to hit the weights Saturday morning and Wednesday afternoon and it isn't bad but when i go do cardio on bad weather days during peak hours nearly all of the cardio machines are full, about 80-90%.
