That said ... the Monday, Wednesday & Friday 8:00am "Cynergey" classes are VERY, VERY crowded and nobody new should even attempt to go. The previous was a self serving comment intended to help assure that the poster can always get their preferred spot.

Don't remember the rec center fees, but for MVP:

The rate for TV residents is a one time enrollment fee of $100 (although I know they regularly run 50% off specials on the enrollment fee) for the primary member and $75 for the associate member.

The monthly fee is $59 for the primary and i think it is $43 for the associate member.

You are also allowed to "freeze" your account once per year for up to 11 months (great if you are a snowbird or planning a long vacation because you don't have to pay the enrollment fee again).

They don't require an annual contract, it is strictly month-to-month billing and once you sign up, you are locked into those rates (unless you cancel).

Centergy with Nancy is a tough class--I had trouble due to rotator cuff issues but if I could I would do it regularly. For those unfamiliar with Centergy, it is a combination of yoga and pilates.

I do the spin classes twice a day, six days a week and I am hooked. I have never not gotten a bike due to overcrowding (they have 40 LeMond spin bikes in that classroom).

MPV is a long way from my Village----if its that good I would certainly give it a try if they open one south of 466A.

It is a financially stable company (owned by the same company that owns the Orlando Magic and Amway) and has sister clubs in Orlando and Michigan.
I looked at the rec centers and was pretty impressed, but MVP blew them away. I love working out there!
It is a wonderful facility!! My husband joined this season in the part that helps people rehabilitate. The staff are terrific and he did really well. He normally hates gyms but loved this one.

I'm not very familiar with the Medfit program, but as it was explained to me it is designed for people who have had surgeries, heart attacks, strokes etc. It is a gym within a gym and they assist with workouts/rehabilitation on a more personalized basis. They even have a shuttle which patrols the parking lot and picks up Medfit clients and drives them right up to the gym.

There is an extra fee for Medfit, but i am not sure what it is.
