Safety on Valencia St for single women?

How safe is it for a single professional woman to live on the Valencia street between Central freeway and McCoppin Street? What are the things that I have to look on while renting an apartment in this area? Is there any gyms around the place, if not which will be the nearest?

I am not that familiar with Spring Valley, but I looked up the location on a crime reporting website and this is what I found out. There have been about 138 crimes reported in the last six months within a one-mile radious of Valencia street. The more worrisome crimes do give me a bit of pause. Here they are:

1 murder (on Decmember 5 just a block away on Spring Street)
1 rape (on Mt. Vernon back in Sept.)
6 assaults (one a child endangerment on Valencia itself)
22 burglaries and robberies

It is a little iffy for my taste, especially if you have kids. You can check out the data for yourself here (just put in any address on the street and adjust the date settings): www.crimemapping.com

As to gyms, there is a 24-Fitness way up on University in La Mesa, I think.

Anyway, good luck whatever you decide to do.
