Saving Money. Remaining Fit. P90X and Planet FitnessPosted: October 26, 2011
My husband and I are dedicated to fitness. That being said, we aren’t fitness models but remaining healthy is important to us. How can becoming/remaining or striving to be fit save you money? Most have heard that obesity increases risk of diabetes, stroke, cancer and ect. These diseases will often land you in the hospital. (go HERE, for a CDC article regarding this topic) Hospital stays cost money. I like to save money, so I exercise. I have worked out at home to avoid gym membership costs. I have also exercised in a gym so I wouldn’t have to buy my own equipment. I believe both options are good. Read below for a review of Planet Fitness and P90X.
My husband did the P90X program 3 times. I missed treadmills. Thus, we both got a membership at Planet Fitness. It costs approximately $21/month for BOTH of our memberships. We are not bound to a one year contract and have never had to wait in line for any cardio equipment.
All of that being said, some money-saving blog authors will encourage you to ditch your health club membership. If you find a cheaper, yet effective way to exercise definitely cancel it! Just don’t give up on exercise! In my non-professional opinion..staying healthy will save time and money in the long run.
