Let's be truthful about this. For many people the fitness aspects of jogging along Town Lake are just a fringe benefit. The primary activity out there may very well be sizing up the local talent. Take in a long walk or a good run and you can check out a couple hundred members of the opposite (or same) sex, many of whom could very well be available. And as a health club, you can't beat the initiation fee or the monthly dues ($0).
