I am having an internal struggle. My Biggest Loser class through my work is about to end. It has been successful for me for a few reasons. During it I have lost 11-12lbs so far, I have committed to tracking my food and I have definitely gained strength and stamina. The workouts for the most part are fairly low-key too. Part of the reason this has been successful to me is that I am with the same group of people every class meeting. I feel accountable to show up and work and guilty if I don't. This is how I operate best, at least for now.
There is a Crossfit gym near my house that seems to be a good community (you can tell by the posts on their website) just like my workouts now if not moreso. I am dying to try it... the kicker? It is $100 a month. WTF??? That is super expensive! Especially considering the equipment is fairly basic (no machines) and the staff seems to be pretty small (no more than 5). The benefits? It is a community, it is less than a mile from my house, they have 6 am workouts making it more likely I would go, Crossfit is known to kick your a$$ and I would probably have pretty quick results.
Assuming I went 4 times a week it would cost $6.25 a session basically. That is steep but that is my only gripe.
Should I do it?
