We haven’t been members of a gym since my oldest was a baby, so over 10 years. We have since moved and there is a OneLife facility about 45 minutes away (others closer, but smaller with way fewer amenities). 80,000 square feet, indoor salt water pool (indoor chlorine is an asthma/croup trigger for my 8 year old so HUGE perk), supposedly neat stuff for the kids, just not sure what is available for each age... Price tag would be $114 for our family of 6. Ouch. But we aren’t renewing our annual tubing/ropes course pass... and it would give us something to do over the winter (we homeschool). Also, I am wanting to train for a sprint triathalon. I want to go and check it out one day.
All that to say (or ask):
If you pay for a gym membership each month, do you feel it’s worth it? Do you use a lot of what’s available? What are your favorite aspects of gym vs. home workouts?
Currently I run the neighborhood, do some videos and body weight exercises, and a couple indoor things like a vintage rowing machine and bike trainer... but I get bored out of my mind. I can swim in the river in warmer weather but the water’s already below 60*.
