I’ve had my gym membership for years. I had phases where I went regularly, then other times, not so much. Whenever I fell off the bandwagon, I felt that I was wasting money. I contemplated quitting my membership many, many times. For some reason, a little nagging voice in my head kept me from doing that, though. I was sure that as soon as I quit, I would want to go to the gym again. In a way, I was trying to trick my motivation into kicking back in by guilt-tripping myself for paying for something I wasn’t using. It mostly worked. When I started running outdoors 3 years ago, I again contemplated if it was time to quit the gym membership. I wasn’t going to classes, I surely could do weight exercises at home. But, I never did. I decided that I should probably keep the membership and incorporate it back into my workout routine. I was locked into a pretty affordable price, and there were just too many advantages to having access to the gym.
