Yeah those community centre gyms tend to be around 50 nt and I think they give you 70 minutes for that. They have some decent stuff in there so it's a reasonable alternative to a full gym membership, but to me, not worth it.
Just my humble opinion, but people need to understand that working out is a life long venture. You will need to be doing this 3 times a week, FOREVER ! If you cut corners, go to cheaper places without the cool atmosphere and abundance of equipment to keep you busy, you'll likely not succeed in building up the life long habit of working out and actually enjoying it. It'll always be a chore, and you'll be one of those on again off again types.
I say there's nothing more important than your health. So go ahead, spend a little money on a full scale gym membership, and spend some extra money on a good tasting healthy diet plan.
You can ditch the expensive clothes, you don't need a watch or jewellery, you can drive a cheap 2nd hand car, you can skip the expensive gifts at holidays, but one thing you should not be doing is being cheap with your health. Health should be your primary expense in your life. To me, a gym membership and healthy eating is just a mandatory life expense :2cents:
