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!
*sings all hard & loud like J Hud in the Weight Watchers commercial*
I’M FEELING GOOOOD!!
Ladies, our resolutions are fresh, and bad habits are soooo 2010! Put that Coco Loso down right nah!!
Just look at how amazing celebrities such as Jennifer Hudson and Raven-Symoné are looking these days. That could be you!
Sure celebrities have all the resources in the world, but fitness is challenging for everyone. Ciara, Beyonce, Janet Jackson, and Serena Williams don’t just roll out of bed looking that fabulous. They work hard at it. It may take more in the way of willpower for the rest of us, but fundamentally there’s absolutely nothing any of them are doing that’s outside of our reach.
Whether you are working with a personal trainer, are addicted to Wii Fit, or are taking classes at your local Y, the BlackGirlFit(ness) Challenge is all about reaching personal goals and milestones, and being the healthiest and fittest that you can be.
