So I officially have too many gym memberships, and I cannot decide how to move forward with deciding which one to keep! Help!
Here's the situation:
1. I have a membership to Retro Fitness, which is a gym franchise in the NY/NJ area. My memberships "resides" with the location down at the shore near my house, but I can go to any Retro Fitness with my membership, there are some of these gyms in North Jersey, near my job. Fee is $19.99/month. I've been using Retro for over 4 years, they have plenty of standard equipment but do not offer classes.
3. My new job has a fitness center in their building! The membership fee comes directly out of your paycheck (comes to about $20/month), they have the standard machines, weights, space, access to a personal trainer, shower, and a few classes. They are open early enough for me to go before work and I can go right after work, but they are not open late.
4. Our apartment building JUST re-opened their fitness center, which is FREE.The center had been flooded out since Sandy, and they just re-opened a brandy new space. It's new and clean but very simple, minimal amount of machines and weights. But it is FREE and in our building for WHENEVER I want to use it!
My gut is telling me to go with option #3, plus the additional benefit of the freebie #4. Though #2 has great offerings and other locations in the area where I can go as well... But I am not sure my wallet can justify that!
What do you think? What would you do?
