I had a thought about this last month, but have been way too distracted to complete this post that the cost of keeping fit can actually have a negative impact on our health. You see we are not all millionaires, or even comfortably financially secure, so keeping in shape by going to the gym can often be seen as a luxury if you are finding it hard to make ends meet.
If you find the expense of going to a gym hard to manage you can find your only outlets are parks, or keeping yourself in shape at home, or a combination of both. So the thought really goes to how much can you comfortably afford each month, and what can you expect to get for your hard earned cash.
I consider myself an average person, and would expect to pay between £20 and £30 pounds a month to keep myself in shape. I will go to the gym 3 or 4 days a week, and use the gym, the weights and sauna. The only thing I would want, and have to pay more for would be to go swimming.
So when I see an advert for two of my pet hates I have to get your thoughts as well. They are overpriced training sessions, and training during your lunchtime.
The link below is from a gym that got a lot of publicity recently in a number of newspapers. Maybe its my age showing, but all the bright lights and posing. Are they really necessary?? And one training session for 20 pounds? Almost as much as I am paying for using my gym for one month..
Anyway, I suppose there are people out there who would probably find this suitable so good luck to them.
Have a look and let me know what you think.. 🙂
