Gold's Gym, or other big gym chains

I am considering joining Gold's Gym. Who else is a member? How much do you pay per month, and what start up fees did you pay, or did they waive them? I'm willing to join I think for $50 (I'm guessing that's what the monthly fee is) but I think the enrollment fee is a joke.
Before I meet with the Membership Director I'd like to know what other people are paying.
If you belong to Baly's or 24 hour fitness, I'd be interested in their pay structure as well for comparison.

I go to 24 hour and pay $27 per month. But I have been a member for around 5 years.

I also go to 24 hour fitness, but i pay $40/month and can go to any 24 hr fitness across the country. I can add a family member for another $20/month so then it'd be about $30/month each which is reasonable.

OP Here, Please also add where you live, as that may make a difference in the cost. SF and NY are probably double than let's say, Iowa.

I go to Gold's in Austin, Tx. We have 13 gyms in this area which makes it very convenient for me. I go to one near my work at lunch a few times a week and one near my house afterwork and on weekends. They also offer childcare which my daughter loves. I pay $20.99/month through a corporate membership. I had to pay $78 enrollment fee. My husband joined after the new year and he got his membership for $30/month and no enrollment fee. Be prepared...they REALLY push the $50+ per hour training packages.

Good to know, if I could sign up for $30/month and no enrollment fee, I would totally sign up. Did your husband get a discount through your corporate membership? Did he have to haggle to get that deal?
