and Sean adds: "You don't need the fancy equipment and gym clothing to sit in a chair and pump out a dozen bicep curls. A bit of a tangent, but when I still had my gym membership, I loved to go because they had tvs built into the cardio equipment. It was great for the winter, and it was a good motivator, too. 'If I stop now, I won't see the end of Seinfeld! Keep going!'"
"The other side of that is that I could never understand the people who would stand on a treadmill and flip channels for, literally, 5-10 minutes to find something good before starting up. You could have at least been walking! What a waste."
- So to clarify- If you do not use your gym membership enough to justify the cost- cancel it and exercise at home. If going to the gym is important to you then do not cancel it to save money- instead, be sure you are not wasting time- or hogging the treadmill- by surfing and standing!
- Be sure you are taking advantage of all the benefits of your health insurance.
