      Wasn't a fan of LaLanne as what they promised wasn't exactly what they offered...$1100 dollars...

      Thanks for these resources. I now know where to go if I visit San Francisco. The price is a bit high though, at $50 more than my gym, but it is more expensive in San Francisco. Voting this Up and Useful.
