Gym Membership

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

I've had a busy few weeks with my clients, and found that I'm only getting to the gym a couple of times a week. This works out at 7.50 per visit!

The rest of the week I work out at home, easier to squeeze in time-wise, as it takes me 20-30 mins to get to the gym, and 20-30 mins to get back home.

And if I only get to the gym once in a particular week, that equates to 15 for the visit!

How many times a week do you get to the gym? What stops you going more often? Would love to hear your comments.

    No gym for me, I don't like them. When I can i use the open air gyms near my home, or just do stuff at home.

    Your not including the price of gas or train fare etc for you to go 30 min each way :) It's costing you more than 15 a week. :)

I actually despise working out in a gym...the only time I do it is for my Krav Maga and for Rock's Spring/Summer here and I prefer to be outside, even in Winter I prefer to be running around the lake/park than on a treadmill.

I find that I enjoy it a lot more, I'm outside, the dog gets a workout and my head is just a lot clearer :)

Just my thoughts :)

    I had joined a gym for the winter season - was going 4-5 times per week at first, this reduced to 3-4 times with work commitments - plus I was going out running at the weekend / other nights (Gym was for lunchtimes)
My membership has ended now, but I will re-join in November when the weather gets bad again...

    I try and go 5 times a week. I'm like you; I try and calculate how much I am spending "per session", and that kicks my butt into gear and get down there! I really don't wanna waste money...

What stops me going? If I just cannot be bothered! lol Nah, mainly if I have to work late, I don't go. Or these days, if I have netball practice or a netball match, I go to that instead of gym.

Maybe you should try and find a cheaper, more local gyn? 60 a month is pretty steep (says me who pays 50 a month!). What gym do you go to? I go to Fitness First, and absolutely love it.

  I plan to go to the gym 5 nights a week, right after work. In real life, I generally get there 3 or 4 nights a week. I save the weekends as "down time" although I get some exercise working in the yard, going for a walk, or strolling around the mall for a couple of hours.

I know I wouldn't have the motivation to leave home and drive 30 minutes to the gym and back for a workout. Is there a gym closer to home for you?
