Looking for high-intensity, low-impact, portable exercise.

I want a high intensity, low-impact workout that I can do every single day, indoors, with minimal space requirements. Jumping rope in my apartment lobby is absolutely perfect except that my feet and knees can't do it daily. [more inside]

Are there any decent Chicago gyms without yearly contracts?

I'm being a very bad transhumanist by letting my body get so unhealthy over the last few years. I'd like to fix that; having just moved to the Chicago area, I'd like to find a decent gym to start working out in. My fear, however, is that I'll run into the same issue I've encountered before: signing a year contract only to let my attendance taper off (ultimately never visiting at all in the last six months).

"I fart in your general direction." Please help us stop! The guy in my pilates class thanks you!

Ladies and Pilates - question about unintended sounds during class. I know it's normal but is there any way to clamp down to quiet down once in a while? This doesn't seem to happen as much during yoga, and it doesn't matter if I've had sex recently or not. [more inside]

What are some of your favorite and most creative exercises? I am looking for fun and effective things to mix up my routine. Stuff that will make the guy next to me say 'What the f*** is that?' Stuff like 'Wall Balls', 'Jumping Burpees', and 'Double-Unders'. Honestly I just like to mix it up to prevent boredom. I have already seen all the exercises on the CrossFit website. Extra points if it involves props like medicine balls and tires.

Exercise Makes My Teeth Hurt (Sometimes)

Jogging or biking makes my back teeth ache (throbbing nerves!) when I first start exercising after maybe a month off (and also, I get violent itches deep in my leg muscle tissue.) Why? Yes, it goes away once I'm back in shape.

Nutrition Tracking Software.

I need software that will track my nutritional intake. It would track calories, carbs, protean, fats and keep them in a date base for reference. It should have a good sized date base of foods already in it and be able to have new ones added. This is for a pre-intel Mac preferably, or online if need by. Free or cheap would make me happy.
