12 Reasons to Join the Gym by Stephanie Nickel

If any of the following apply to you, you may want to consider joining the gym:

  1. You have the know-how but lack motivation.
  2. You are uncertain what equipment and routines are best for you.
  3. Without a regular cash investment, you keep putting off getting physically active.
  4. You’re bored and need to “mix things up” a little.
  5. You love the idea of exercise classes.
  6. You need a space that is set aside exclusively for exercise, unlike your living room or rec room.
  7. You need to be some place where there aren’t little ones, and not-so-little ones, underfoot.
  8. Your BFF is looking for an accountability partner to exercise with her.
  9. Your exercise equipment is gathering dust, as are your workout DVDs and that pair of cross trainers you bought last year.
  10. You want access to a wide range of exercise equipment.
  11. You’re tired of being tired.
  12. You want to turn “I should” into “I am.”

There’s a Fit4Less gym just down the road from my church, where I am filling in for our administrator while she’s on maternity leave. The plan is to work out four times a week at 3:15, after I’m done in the office. I’m looking forward to getting started; I’m excited even.

How about you? Do you belong to a gym? If not, what would make you consider signing up?


A gym membership can be one of the best investments you’ve ever made. (tweet this)
