why there are no major health clubs in South Louisiana?

I live in Texas.. There are as many gyms as there are churches right here, and there are a lot. I go visit South Louisiana and I don’t see a lot of gyms no real major gym that I could be a member at home and when I travel there.

I don’t know wtf that guy is talking about because you didn’t ask how to lose weight.

Any who, I live in St. Mary Parish, we have Curves, Anytime Fitness, Atchafalya Health Club, and like three or four more smaller ones. We do have several privately owned gyms, but our only major franchise is Curves. I think it’s because we don’t have enough population for large companies to put a branch in our areas. Most of our southern parishes have huge area (as in the measurements, land mass, etc) with a very small population.

Here in St. Mary we have a couple gyms that are like $1 a day for out of towners.

Sorry Chick-a-dee, guess it’s back to the good ol’ calesthenics.

Sound-Off Live — Louisiana Ice Gators

Way back in 1996, ice hockey was a PHENOMENON in Louisiana. The Louisiana Ice Gators (out of Lafayette) were drawing more than 12,000 fans per game, easily the tops in all of minor league hockey, and even beating some NHL teams.

During the first season of Sound-Off Live (a Lake Charles sports call-in show running on local cable), we took a road trip to one of the games and had a great time.
