Although I love reformer Pilates classes, the cost is unsustainable in my budget. Well, if we want to keep taking vacations. So, I’ve been looking for a gym but also wanted “a good deal”.
The Black Friday offer at the gym I toured a couple of months ago was good enough to get me to whip out the credit card and join for a year. Not only were the registration fees waived but I also save $10 off the fee every month.
Belonging to a Gym vs. Using a Gym
It’s a little hard to step into a new gym without feeling like the first day at a new school. I went for the first time today and took advantage of a free fitness evaluation and personal trainer workout. It is helping me get orientated to the equipment.
Now that the ice is broken, I plan to attend 2-3 times a week plus when it’s too cold outside to walk. This gym has a long list of classes starting at 5:15 in the morning including water workouts which will be fun to try.
Not Saying Good-bye to Pilates
I have three reformer classes that are already prepaid at the studio I’ve been using. I’ll be using them once a week on Sundays. Once they’re gone I’ll be attending my gym’s mat Pilates classes – also on Sunday. I’ll miss the reformer, but not the price tag.
It was surprising (and inspiring) to see how many people were there at 6 am involved in a variety of activities ranging from martial arts to swimming. Do you have any gym tips for me?
