First is my gym membership. In December, I decided to put it on hold. I would soon be doing all my workouts at work anyway (courtesy of Xtreme Revolution), so it didn't make sense to be paying for the membership in addition. I also wanted to really evaluate how much I missed my membership. While I do long for my dance fitness class, I was only going to that once a week. That's hardly worth $30/month. I've decided that when my hold is over in March, I will be nixing the gym membership and continuing my workouts at work. I have access to a pretty sweet fitness facility as well as classes and two professionals who can provide personal training. And all of this is free.
Second is races. Last year, I did at least one race a month. At $25 bucks a pop (and that's averaging it out a bit), that's $300. I've decided to cut way back on that. I actually slashed my race budget exactly in half. I've already signed up for one race at $35. I'll probably only end up doing five or six total races for the year. I'm a little worried I'll lose my running mojo. Races kept me motivated to keep training, plus running with other people always challenged me a little. So I'm currently searching for a running group I can join monthly (or maybe weekly). I've found a few local options but haven't committed to anything yet.
Do you have any other advice for saving money without compromising my fitness goals?
