Just a tip on signing up.  If you can, wait until the end of the month, then call in and ask for the best deal.  Normally they are trying to hit numbers so they can offer a better special. I just signed up at LA Fitness off Alicia and got $29/mo with nothing down.  I did some research and that seemed like the best monthly price so I called and said look I'll sign up over the phone right now for $29/ no down, and he said alright. Good luck!

The "best" deal at LA Fitness is $720 prepaid for 36 months ($20/mo). I believe it's then $250/yr after that.

Actually, I'm paying (prepaid) $155 for 1 year or $310 for 2 year at LA fitness.  I got that offer back in 2008 when their business was really slow.  The manager walk around in the gym and ask anyone willing to prepaid 1 year membership for $155 with 1 extra free month or 2 year for $310 with 2 extra free month of membership.  Off course I took the offer and keep the same rate every year after that. :)

Just saw this LA Fitness Special.  One year for $279 and renewal $179/year thereafter.  So it average out $23.25/month for the first year and $14.92/month thereafter.

Is it a public or private offer? Where would I find it?

It's to the public.  They have a sign posted on the wall for this deal.  BTW, this is at Garden Grove LA fitness, other location should be able to honor the same deal.

I wish! Some of their clubs are closed late in the evenings or on weekend evenings:

The one at the Spectrum closes at 10pm on weekends and opens at 5am:

I had too many experiences like this at 24 hour fitness where they aren't open 24 hours (IIRC Brea was/is the worst).
I'd never trek out to the one at the Spectrum, especially when there's the one at Tustin Marketplace and that one is open 24/7...good enough for me.  :D

Yeah, I guess I'm referring to instances when you're outside the bubble and need the gym (sortof the main reason to go with a larger chain) particularly with travel, when you're likely to go at odd hours. I've been let down before, with the "24 Hour Fitness!" neon lights being the only thing on - basically laughing at my face while deducting from my bank account. Not bitter.
They have their negatives but 24 hour is the least worst in my eyes.

I'm going to get a gym membership, but I truly do not know which gym better benefits. Tomorrow I'm going to go ask for information. For now, I would like some opinions

Which gym is closer to you, home and/or work? If a gym is a trek to get to, it's that much less likely you'll work out. Are you likely to work out at odd hours? If so, 24 hour fitness may work better for you. Also consider what non-local cities you may regularly visit, such as for family, and whether or not they have a 24 hr Fitness or an LA Fitness.

Also, get a free 1 or 2 week pass for wherever you're likely to work out to see if you like the equipment/crowds/etc.

I currently belong to 2 gyms: LA Fitness and UFC. UFC is far superior, but few really good locations (all the small ones don't match up to the motherships in Corona and Rosemead). I was with 24 Hour Fitness for about 10 years, and was generally satisfied, depending on location. I had 24 Hour Fitness at a $100/year renewal rate, but finally dropped it after I found that in 2 years I'd gone there once and no longer had any locations close to me.

I joined 24-hour fitness when I started school at UCI. Monthly dues were $3/month and I hardly ever went but it was such a sweet deal I couldn't let it expire so kept paying renewals... 3-4 years ago they bumped the pricing by 5%. Now I pay $3.15/month :-) 
Wag more. Bark less.

They have Lifetime Fitness here in OC?  Are they as big as the one other states?
