Surprisingly, we were in and out of the gym in about 5 minutes -- the amount of time it took to find out membership information and print the paperwork.
It feels liberating. We are no longer slaves to automatic monthly credit card charges of over $140 for the two of us. What could you do with an extra $140 a month? You could buy every video that interests you, a set of kettlebells and free weights, even save up for your own spin bike or treadmill. You can work out on your own time without worrying about finding a babysitter. If you only have a free 30 minutes, that doesn't leave enough time to get to the gym, do anything productive, and come home -- yet you can squeeze in a HIIT workout, some Pilates core moves, and anything else you desire at home.
