I would suggest YMCA.. it's perfect from what my friend told me.
it's $10.oo or so everytime you go there but it's worth it.
they got mats, weights, treadmills, etc..

By the way, would you like a training partner? Cause I've been looking for one to no avail.
I found a guy that wants to do parkour, but he doesn't seem dedicated at all.

im having the same problem today it was 1 degrea.......
I go to a nice open gym once a week
just call local gymnastic places and ask if the have an open gym.
What if you fail?
I won't.

Oh don't worry, glad that you're back though.
Well if you live over by boondocks, that kinda sucks.
But I have a training buddy with a car, and we might be able to pick you up over at Boondocks or whatnot..
I'd have to talk to him again. See if he's down for some Parkour.
Right now my weekend has kinda been messed up. my bike is at the hookah bar, and my coat too.
And it's a very cold walk down there.
Gonna have to beg my mom for a ride.

Well man I would suggest getting some friends with cars, or finding a place near you like in a parking garage or something... I lived down over there last year, and I don't really remember anything.
