To gym or not to gym

I am coming up on the expiration of my gym membership. I am at a crossroads: To gym or not to gym. I enjoy the gym and I enjoy a good run. (I think I mentioned that one before.) The gym is warm and SAFE. It won't cost anymore just another contract; the monthly price is decent. BUT, in a crazy economy like this should I renew and obligate myself to another two to three years? I mean $20/month isn't much to pay for my safety, but on the other hand it will buy a lot of eggs, ramen and mac n' cheese during an unforseen rough patch. What thoughts do my blogger friends have on this? I appreciate your input. I am so indecisive!


  1. I would say that if you actually use your membership, then keep it. Food is helpful, but so is your health!

    I, on the other hand, would let a perfectly good gym membership go to waste. Which is probably why I've never had one.

  2. If I were you, I would keep it. I would kill for a gym in my town that only cost $20 a month! That's an awesome price.

    And even if you don't always go to the gym, at least you have the option. You have a place you can escape to, if needed.

    Ahhhh, the thought makes me long for a place of my own!

  3. I always used my gym membership as a conversation starter. NOT what it was intended for - getting in shape. lol. props to you for actually going and staying in shape!

  4. I say if you are using it plenty then stick with it!!

  5. Hmmm, that is a tough one! I went through that a few yrs ago and decided to stop membership...bought an elliptical for the house--thinking--LONG term, this is better. BUT, now that I don't have people watching me...I simply don't work out--so, if you use it...well... If in the event of unfortunate times...what happens if you don't pay? hmmm,

    Man, I AM helpful! I probably just made it to the top of your "CALL IN AN EMERGENCY SITUATION" list huh!

  6. I can't seem to get motivated this year to exercise! We have a gym membership and we're just not using it!... I say keep your membership and lets motivate each other to go! Deal? :)

    PS--you'd think the fact that basically pajama bottoms are the only thing that fits me it seems would be motivation enough...grrrrrr


Always happy to hear from you! Comments make my day, just please keep them uplifting and positive. Thanks for stopping by!
