wow.
For 700 a month I could REALLY indulge in bike hoarding ....that would even  pay  for an air conditioned storage locker. Must be nice to have that kind of money to burn. ( I can't  drop a bike off at the shop without ogling another one)

For $700 a month, you'd almost think that you could pay someone to work out for you and somehow get the benefits...

I think its a great example of "yuccie" behavior (see http://mashable.com/2015/06/09/post-hipster-yuccie/). Its non-traditional conspicuous consumption. Its an "experience", healthy, good for your body, etc. The point is to show off your wealth but not directly, just to show that you can afford "the best" of something.

LOL, this is what I got:

Wow! You are not at all a yuccie. Or perhaps you are so dead set on not being a yuccie that you have rigged this quiz to give yourself some level of comfort. You hate the Internet and you hate made up terms.

I live in Manhattan and walk past Soul Cycle everyday on the way to my "discount" gym and see about 5 cabs pull up when it's time for classes.  In all the time I've walked past I don't think I've seen a single physique I've actually been impressed by.

Not only do you have to pay for the classes it also seems borderline mandatory you outfit a while wardrobe of their dumb clothes to let everyone know how you live the fit lifestyle since they couldn't tell otherwise

Equinox is also ridiculous at about $200/mo minimum

I was half expecting something along the lines of, "In Soviet Russia, gym exercise you!"
