Gym Challenge

Monday, June 11, 2012

Today was the "first" day of Summer vacation? Why was I wide awake @ 4;45? I washed dishes, clothes and cleaned a closet before 7am. I had to go to work to finish cleaning but didn't finish. I ended up answering the phone in the main office because the secretaries went to a meeting. I will still have to go back.

Why is shopping for a gym so stressful? These people sell gym memberships like others sell cars. I've had a personal trainer so I understand that some features are extra. But why are some classes extra? Do I want to sign up for 1 year, 2 years or month-to-month? Should I go back to my old gym which is cheaper but doesn't have the group classes that I want? The challenge of a gym should be the workout not the paperwork!

I'm trying to get ready for the in-service tomorrow. Who wants to hear about weathering, soil and erosion on their 2nd day of summer vacation?

    I agree with you about the stress of finding a gym. I realized that no matter what, there is no such thing as a perfect gym. Even if the price is perfect for your budget, it will still be missing something.

    Try this website http://www.gymticket.com/

    It has a directory of over 20,000 gyms and health clubs across the country where you can get free guest passes! Using free passes until you find the right gym can be useful.

    If I could find a gym with cheap 1 day passes, big body towels, a steam room, massage on the premise & child care; I'd be good! I use to do the classes but I'm not there mentally anymore. I just wanna run, go in the steam room, shower and go home! Finding a gym should not be complicated and nor should the guy who is trying to sell you on a membership be extremely pushy...ugh!

    Hope the site helps :)
