Bay Club San Francisco: A Six Month Review

I can't believe it's been six whole months since my membership at Bay Club San Francisco began. Time literally flew by. But I wanted to test it out for a long period of time before giving you guys my thoughts. If you haven't heard about Bay Club, it is a health club that has locations ALL over California.
