I’m back at the gym.  The cheapskate in me couldn’t pass a deal like this up!

Costco is selling a 2 year membership to 24 Hour Fitness for $299.99.  That comes out to only $12 a month!  I figure if I can at least go once a week to a class or to workout, I am getting a screamin’ good deal!

My husband bought this pass about a month ago.  The first week, he went to the gym 6 TIMES!  That was crazy!  But he is motivated – he wanted to lose 10 pounds – and he has been going faithfully at least 3 times a week.  He’s been trying to get me to go, but I’ve been dragging my feet (literally with my sprained ankle slowly healing).

He made me get a free 2 week membership to try it out.  After being there one morning, I was convinced.  I haven’t belonged to a gym for about 2 years.  It seemed easier to workout at home with the kids.  But I’m getting soft (both mentally AND physically) and it’s time to get back into that culture of fitness that’s so prevalent at the gym.

So for just $12 a month, you might want to give 24 Hour Fitness a try too!

And to up your chances of success, get a buddy to join with you.  Having James going to the gym motivates me to go too.  This was very sweet of him…he left a note for me and some gloves in the car the first morning I went to workout.  This meant a lot especially since I was so grumpy about getting up early in the morning (I am NOT a morning person!).
