Thanks to the ice and the potential for ice this week, my gym hasn’t been open. It’s a gym at a church so it’s understandable that the church is closed due to weather. However, this hasn’t been my best week on record because of it.
I like exercising. It’s my medicine and keeps me sane and happy. I love 30 minutes on an elliptical machine and need it multiple times a week. Or a class. Or SOMETHING. I know that I need to exercise 30 minutes a day and without it I get cranky.
I’ve been trying to workout at home, but it’s not been going well. I don’t have a lot of space in my small house with a roommate, dog, and furniture. There isn’t much room to do anything other than jog in place, so my options are to go outside. Ice and freezing temps have kept me inside (yes I know it’s nothing compared to other parts of the country but I’m completely unprepared for it).
Now I’m considering joining a second gym.
Reasons why I’m considering a second gym:
- My church gym is not open with great hours and it closes at the drop of a hat (or ice).
- Joining a second gym would give me more options to workout without driving across town.
- I’d get the ability to utilize more equipment that my church gym doesn’t have.
- A regular gym has better and longer hours so I could have more time to workout.
- It would only cost $10-$20 more per month depending on the gym I choose.
Is this crazy? Is joining a second gym overkill? Does anyone need two gym memberships, even if they like and utilize them?
It might be overkill, but I’m going to do it! There are multiple pros for me with few cons other than cost. I’ve learned as I’ve gotten older that paying for things that matter to you and improve your life is totally worth it. I’ll soon be the proud member of multiple gyms!
