    Years ago, I created a home gym! For the cost of a couple years gym membership, I can have the convenience of a home gym. No excuses, my wife and I use it regularly.

  3. Ooooooh this post makes me feel so guilty. To be fair I have an excuse, but since my knee injury (torn ligament- been on wretched crutches for 10 weeks now), I’ve not gone any where near my gym. I’m tied into a year’s contract, which I can’t cancel or postpone, so I’m effectively throwing £45 away every month.

    If you’re going to go for a gym membership, look and see how flexible the terms of the contract are. You never know what can happen which will stop you from working out!

  4. Use it or lose it applies to so many aspects of life, my physique and pre-paid gym memberships included. This reminds me, I must make use of this awesome weather before the ice is on the ground again. Thanks for the inspiration.

    I just canceled my gym membership last week since I wasn’t using it. I’ll take my $70 back! The weird part they didn’t even put up a fight lol

    I pay $35/month to glide on an elliptical every few days. Not sure it’s the best investment. I’ve given up the focus on my guns and pythons. I guess they get a workout while I’m counting my cash?

  7. Guilty, Guilty, Guilty. I did buy a gym membership, And even worse I hired a trainer…. and then after about 2 months I never went back. I continued to pay automatically for about 2 more months before I got around to canceling it.

  8. This reminds me of pay now or pay later…. exercising is really important. Health is not something we can get back. In fact, one of my goals as of most recently is to do more step climbing and spinning exercises. :) We’ll see how this goes :P Nice motivational post.

  9. I understand the importance of exercise in our body. With so much stuff in my hands, I don’t have the time to go to the gym anymore. *sigh*

    To compensate, I consider some chores as my exercise — walk with the kids to school and do the same when I pick them up, carry school bags and groceries like I do some weightlifting, etc.
