We Go To Different Gyms Now

Downtown Fitworks

Convenience! We used to both have gym memberships at Fitworks. There is one very close to our church and only about 10 minutes from our house by car. We went every weekend and Gerard went through the week a couple times. I used to go with him on weekends (before we had a dog) and sometimes for an evening class during the week but would go to the downtown location almost every day at lunch time during fall and winter because it is in walking distance from my office.

Fitness 19

When Fitness 19 opened even closer to our home, we switched there instead because it was also somewhat cheaper. I found myself not going nearly as often and had to really push myself to go. It just wasn’t convenient for me. When I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, I had to stop working out for about a year. I actually missed it then and when I got the green light from my surgeon that I could go ahead and do weight lifting again as much as I wanted, I rejoined at Fitworks.

Parma location
Now, Gerard is still at Fitness 19 and I go to Fitworks either before work or during my lunch hour. On Sundays I will go to Fitworks near home sometimes after church while Gerard goes to Fitness 19. The key to choosing a gym is location . . . if it is not convenient; you probably won’t go very often. At least that has been my experience.

Fitworks is on Facebook. There are discussions and tips from their trainers there. What is most important to you when choosing a gym?

Hubby and I work out together at home. We have everything we need and save lots of money. We work out 5 or more days per week. It works for us.

Have a terrific day. :)

We don't have a lot of choices...it's the YMCA or nothing.

The only reason I went to my gym was because it is a mere 2 minutes from my house by car (one, if I made the light at the cross street!). Plus, they open at 5:30AM and I'm a morning person. I loved it there. If I ever join up again, it'll be with them.

My wife and I realize that we can save if we quit going to the fitness club and do our workout at home. It's working fine for the both of us.
