2) I realized I was only attending five or six classes a month, and I wasn't going there any other time. I think gym memberships are only a waste of money if you don't use them. And I'm not sure I was using mine wisely.
3) We're coming up on the New Year's Resolution rush. I don't begrudge anyone who decides to up the workouts in the new year, but it does make going to the gym in January and February less appealing.
4) In a few weeks, I'll start another round of the workout program at my office. I'll be working out there five times each week, which means I probably won't have time to go to the gym.
5) I realized I am not taking full advantage of the fitness facilities at my office. The equipment and indoor track are available to me 24/7. There are multiple classes Monday through Friday. And it's all free.
I've started being better about number four. I've been attending classes at work more regularly, and so far it's been a great decision. I get my workout done during the day. I get to interact with other people in my company. And there's a great variety of classes. I plan to keep the hold on my membership going through March, which will be the end of my office workout program. I want to see how much I miss that place and the classes before I fully cancel.
Have you ever cut your gym membership?
