Procrastinating all year may have worked out in your favor this time. Just about every gym is offering a New Year’s special, or waiving or discounting costly, inexplicable initiation fees to reel in new members looking to fulfill their weight loss resolutions.
Even Equinox, The Best Gym Ever (imo) is waiving their initiation fees. If they weren’t $150/mo, I’d consider it. Planet Fitness is still the best deal in town at just $10/mo, but as I’ve repeatedly stated here, you do get what you pay for.
Around this time of year it’s essential to keep multiple memberships because every facility will be packed. Try working out first thing in the morning or very late at night to avoid the flock of newcomers.
Here’s to a great 2012!
I’m a strong proponent of not depriving yourself of the things that you enjoy. I’m not going to tell anyone to abstain from the mac n’ cheese & cornbread tonight. (Hell, I’m not.) But don’t show up to Christmas dinner behaving like you’re eating for an army!
Holiday dinners are generally pretty guiltless for me, b/c I always keep it at one plate. Yes, one plate! I don’t pile it a foot high, and I never take home leftovers. Of course this is almost always interpreted as an insult to the chef, but I’m not gonna pack on the extra pounds over your grandma’s secret recipe.
Don’t let these cooks sabotage your waistline!!
Happy Holidays & Merry Christmas!
