I decided to cancel my gym membership the other day. I still believe a gym membership can motivate some people to start working out. In fact, joining a gym helped me turn my attitude around about exercising regularly. However, it got to the point where I enjoyed running much more than anything else. I do incorporate weights when doing bodyweight exercises at home so I still get my resistance training in. I realized that I was paying a monthly fee for what I can do for free.
Exercising at home will save me money in fees and gas. I like waking up, seeing a beautiful day, and going for a run outside. I usually do my resistance training in the evenings.
I’m not worried about losing motivation about working out. It is a part of my life now and exercise is something I truly enjoy. One thing that was tough was cancelling my membership. Wow, the person on the phone had a rebuttal for everything I had to say! Have you ever canceled a gym membership? What were your reasons and did it work out better for you?
