• Glad you agree! I can get in a whole workout in the time it would take me to commute to and from the gym. Plus, nothing beats being outside when the weather is nice.

  1. I was a gym enthusiast for years, and reached nice fitness goals, but this summer I did not renew my membership. I wanted to test and see if I could remain active. I have. Winter might be a different story, though. Will have to see. But the money saved (plus the time in commute to and from the gym) is really nice.

    • That’s really reaffirming to hear. I’ve been able to stick with a pretty consistent fitness routine this summer even though we’ve had some sweltering days. I’m nervous about winter, though. Do you do a lot of outdoor workouts?

  2. Hey, Penny! I’m loving your blog so far (making my way through the archives). I’d love to know which fitness blogs you read. I’m considering a gym membership right now, and I need all the motivation I can get. The gym that’s less than a mile from our home has all the regular equipment (cardio, weight machines, free weights) plus a pool, sauna, steam room and hot tub. I’m mostly considering a membership for the pool so I can ease back into fitness. (I was a bit of a fitness fanatic before I was hit with chronic pain in 2012.)

    • So cool to hear! Thanks for stopping by.

      My very favorite one is Pumps and Iron. She’s so down to earth. She’s gotten a lot more hardcore, since she quit her job to fitness blog and teach fitness full time. So I love going back in her archives. I’ve followed her since almost day 1! I can recommend some others, too. I’d love to chat fitness – definitely not an expert, and would love to have more people to motivate me. I’ll look for you on Twitter!
