Fitness Poll: Do You Have a Gym Membership You Don't Use?

Do You Have a Gym Membership You Don't Use?

Everywhere you go it seems a new gym has popped up. Big gyms and little gyms are always offering great new deals to join, so chances are high you belong to one kind or another. I have a membership, but I tend to go less in the Summer when I can exercise outside. As soon as the weather gets colder though, I plan on taking full advantage of my gym membership. How about you?

I have had a gym membership since the early 90's and it is paid in full however the chain began to close many of their locations making in somewhat inconvenient for me to go. I love going to the gym as it has the equipment, knowledge and support just in case I want it...they also offer yoga, high and low impact aerobic classes and have all the amenities at most facilities. I even signed my teenage daughters up and they too like the gym...but getting there hasn't been so easy... I am paying monthly fees on theirs because the facility/chain no longer offers true lifetime memberships

Wii fit decreased my need for a gym but the school I hope to be attending this winter has a free gym membership that comes along with your admission and it's a truly amazing gym.

"Yes, I haven't been to the gym much lately but I plan on using it in the Fall." I was really good about going to the gym last fall but I started slacking off around Christmas and i have only been there once, maybe twice then :oops: Hopefully I'll go more often in the next few months.

i used to, it expired in july... well, i cancelled it, i got it from a gym that you need to give a months notice to get out. so that's good. i paid for 6 months and been to the gym that is 3min walk from my flat only 3 times... i'm awful. but at least i ca pretend to be more fit by reading this and going on a bike ride and then eating 6 ice-cream cones... :D

I've had a gym membership now for about 2 years. Before that I had never been to a gym. I now enjoying going to the gym and taking full advantage of it. I go to Lifetime Fitness, which is a bit pricey, but it is really nice. My mom is like you could just run near your house. But the truth of the matter is that I LIKE going to the gym!

I used to have that problem, but last year, my father bought my mom and I a treadmill to add on to our workout room. Our membership was canceled since then :)

I'm very, very lucky to have a gym in my apartment complex -- the fact that it's there all the time means I have no excuse to be lazy!

I really liked my gym, and I was going regularly - it was near my house, it was a manageable size and the trainer was cute! - but then they were sold and that location closed. Now I have to go to one that's a little farther away and much less welcoming. So I've really been off my game for the past few months. As soon as my contract is up (2009, I think) I'm going somewhere else.

I'm am guilty of this in the past, but since Jan we go at least 4 times a week. I took the month of Aug off due to travelling but we're back in it now. AND I got a wii fit, so I've been doing that too. I like my gym and usually don't mind going

it's funny - i have 2 gym memberships and i use both of them. there's the NICE gym that i go to on a daily basis here in NYC - Equinox and that's my gym of choice, however there's no Equinox location by my mom's house so i also have a NYSC membership. the funny thing though is that there are soo many locations around work and my apt in the city to go to NYSC only, but i don't feel as comfortable there - it just that i don't feel like the clubs are as clean and if i'm not feeling the place i won't want to stay and work out as much and that's a waste. at least i get a discounted rate from Equinox from work so i'm not paying full price for both ...right? i go to equinox 5+ days a week and i go to NYSC 2+ days a it's better than having the membership and not using it at all.

I used to belong to a gym, mainly for the swimming pool and a 6 am yoga class that they offered. Once they cancelled the 6 AM class, I pretty much stopped going and eventually cancelled my membership. Now I find that I do much better on my own, even doing yoga with some friends in my yard each week

No, I have a membership and I go all the time. I pay waaay too much to NOT go. I will be swtiching gyms soon though, these members fees are getting out of control! I found a new gym, close to my apt for only $16.66 a month! I'd be a fool if I didnt switch.

I had a favorite athletic club and I went everyday, but then they started dropping a lot of great group exercise classes in the evenings and the schedule was heavy on the stay-at-home-housewife hours so it really annoyed me bc I obviously work during those hours. I realized I was going less so I canceled at the beginning of this month.
