Is a gym membership a necessity?
For the life of me, I can’t figure out if I should keep my gym membership or not…
I’ve had a membership at South Campus Athletic Club for 3 or 4 months now but I’ve been really debating if I really NEED it. Since becoming pregnant, I’ve struggled to get the gym as much as I’d like to, sometimes I’m sick or tired or just plain lazy. And the truth is, I lost all the weight without the gym.
Its best to make a pros & cons list:
PROSI enjoy the group exercise classes.
Treadmill usage in the heat/cold
Bigger variety of weights
CONSCan’t usually get the classes due to the schedule/work.
I don’t really know what to do with all the equipment.
It costs $45/month.
Not using it as often as I’d like
The biggest con for me, is the cost. Its not easy for to spend $45 each month. I’m a huge worrier especially when it comes to money and bills. Obviously, its not the biggest bill ever, but it feels like a lot when I feel like I don’t really need it. I could workout at home. I have plenty of DVDs, several sets of hand weights, even a punching bag!
My gut says cancel my membership, I just worry about the winter when its icy, and yucky outside. I don’t feel comfortable running when there is ice because I am very clumsy. I’ve fallen plenty of times on run with only my feet in the way.
What do you guys think? Do you have a gym membership?
