The past few weeks I have been thinking about joining a gym. I found one in my area that costs $25.00 a month and I have really been considering doing it. I really want to exercise more but it is so hard with two small children and the lack of room in my house for a elliptical or treadmill. I actually own a really nice treadmill but it is at my parents house because we just don't have room for it anymore.
I love the fact that this gym has child care. I probably wouldn't use it that often but if I wanted to I could go during the day and exercise. It costs $2.00 per child so I would be paying an extra $4.00 on top of my monthly fee but at least I have it as an option. I was thinking that I would probably go one morning a week before my husband goes to work (it would have to be really early), one night a week after my husband gets home and every Thursday when my daughter has her gymnastics class. That way I am only paying two dollars in child care that day for my other daughter.
I would really love to get a personal trainer for a few weeks just to teach me the machines and set up a routine for me. I'm not sure how much that would cost so I might not be able to afford it.
I would love to hear any advice you may have for me about getting a gym membership. My daughters gymnastics class starts tomorrow so if I sign up I will probably do it then. I'm just not sure what to do.
