I told you guys recently that I was considering joining LA Fitness since it's near my house. I'm on the fence about it for a few different reasons and wanted to get some feedback. It costs $35 a month and if I sign up by tomorrow my initial fee for joining is dropped from $75 to $25. It has classes I'd really enjoy that I think could help me boost my cardio workouts and of course treadmills and bikes and weight training equipment and all that jazz. It also has a sauna, a pool and a hot tub. It's only about a mile from my house so it's very convenient. I really feel like I would use my membership. I work from home, so I think getting out of the house a couple times a week would be beneficial.
The main reason I'm on the fence is because of our finances. We're working on paying down a decent amount of debt and are making some progress, but I think Steve feels like this is unnecessary. I told him last night I was signing up and he said ok, but I know he doesn't think I need to get a gym membership. The other things to consider are the fact that we have a home gym, a stationary bicycle and a myriad of exercise dvds and weights. Technically, I've got everything I need right here and I don't need to add on the additional expense.
So what do you think? Gym or no gym?
