((One thing you never want to be is a health club drop-out, mainly because health club drop outs still pay dues. So here's what to do before signing on the dotted line. Check out the equipment. Is there a wide variety and is it well maintained? You may want to talk to some current club members to find out how often the machines are unusable because they are broken. It is also a good idea to check out the club at the time of the day when you'll be using it. You sure would hate to have your work out consist of fighting crowds. Next, is the club convenient? A good rule of thumb is to make sure the club is no more than 15 minutes away from home or work. You know you wont go, if getting there is a hassle. And don't forget to check out the club's hours. If they close before you can get there, you're out of luck. Then comes the contract. Don't be pressured. You should be allowed to take a copy home so you can check it out further. And be sure it has some escape clauses in case you would move out of the area or be unable to work out because of illness or injury. ON CAM Don't forget about those hidden costs like towel and locker fees, babysitting costs and costs for the classes. It can all add up pretty quickly. I'm Dr. Dave Hnida for CBS News.))
