Joined a gym finally

September 18th, 2007 at 06:04 pm

There's some purchases that are a slap on the wrist, but then there are those that are worthwhile. I am having so much trouble with the rise-and-shine-and-RUN (only end up running on weekends). I actually started looking into the nearby fitness clubs but was so annoyed by the astronomical membership fees.

Then it hit me- bonk. I've been taking a cardio class at a small martial arts studio. I signed up via the local community college, but then I thought, well how much would membership to the martial arts studio cost? So tonight I asked, and I was pleased to find it was a reasonable $79/month with no yearly commitment! In addition to all the fitness classes, they also have a small, but well-equipped gym! I snuck a peek in the room and saw it was NOT crowded; plus, those who were working out looked very normal, not like pumped-up weightlifters or cell-phone gabbing gym rats.

So I signed up for a month. I really like the non-descript aspect of hte place, the fact it's not at all crowded. It's close to work and the place I volunteer, so I should have no trouble finding time to go- hopefully!

    I love the picture of your cat...lol What is that an apple?

    Joining a gym is great, but what I have found when I worked part-time (for a short period ) there is that most people start out great and slowly but surely stop. Make sure you read teh fine prints and if you are really going to use it then that is great but make sure that is what you want.

    I would HATE to be at a gym where everyone was talking on their cell phones. How annoying to be forced to listen to others' personal conversations.

    Yeah, what Fern said. I'd also hate to pay $79 a month for a membership to anything!
