I’m A Member!

For those of you who follow me on Twitter, you’ve already heard the good news: I joined a gym!
I did a week free trial at my local gym.
Really local. Super local. Like two blocks away and right on my path to work local.
I went 4 days of the 7 on my free trial.
I couldn’t go Wednesday because the weather was bad and everything was closed. I was going to go Friday night during “boy’s night” but boy’s not got turned in to “game night” and girls were invited. =)
I did 1 day on equipment, 1 in spinning class, and 2 in kick boxing class. I had SO MUCH fun.
Before I did the free week trial the price of the gym was $20/month with no commitment.
AFTER my free trial I checked the rates again and it was $16/month!!!! At that price I couldn’t say no. Even if I only went to 3 classes a week (~12 per month) I’d be paying just a little over $1 per class. What an amazing deal to stay healthy. On the flip side, because of my points to blue each class gets me 750 points (which is $0.75 in gift cards) so in a way I’d only be paying $0.25 per class assuming I went 3-4 times per week.
I’m so excited to have gotten such a great deal on a gym membership – especially since I’ll be doing exercises that I love. I’ll be updating my budget to pay for this new expense. I’ve decided that since it is only $16/month it will probably come out of my spending account rather than my bill account.
