Here are some things I don't currently do and the reason why:
1. Own a gym membership
Gyms around me are very expensive (would you pay 150 dollars a month to go to a gym?!) and even LA Fitness is about 40 dollars a month once the specials stop and that's a lot to spend a month when I wouldn't use it more than 2 times a week?
If I want a gym, even though it's not a great one, I can use the one on campus for free since I'm a student.
2. A run club you have to pay a membership for
I run 3-4 days a week and most of my runs are in the morning. Having to pay to meet up with people, when there are so many free clubs, seems silly to me. Most of my runs are by myself anyway so I have a bit more flexibility.
There's a box close to me and I wouldn't discount it in the future but as of now, the cost and early times are the main issue right now.
4. Group classes
I did a barre class once and was so sore but did enjoy it! The cost is high and I wouldn't want to get a monthly membership unless I could really use it (at least 3 days a week) and the individual classes are 30 dollars. Right now, there is no way I could fit in classes
I'm not a football player and do not have the time to do multiple workouts a day. I know I could get stronger if I did, but I could also get injured too! Making sure I do my schoolwork and get enough sleep are my priorities.
Now these are just for me. With my work schedule, commute, being in class 1-2 per week and other commitments, I can't pay for things I won't use often. I do short but intense workouts because the most I can work out during the week is about 30 minutes before work and then 15 min of stretching and core work at night. I'm tight on time to fit everything in (like you know the 200 pages of reading plus prepping a presentation I have for class this week!) so unless I know for sure I will use it, I won't buy it.
How about you? What are workout you wouldn't do?
