It blows my mind that we’re already more than a week into 2017! Like so many other Americans, I am making resolutions for the New Year, with health and wellness being the top priority.
My month has gotten off to a rocky start as I’ve been a bit under the weather, but now that I’m finally on the mend it’s time to make some changes. I promised myself that this was going to be the year that I finally got into a healthy weight range (I struggle with BMI because I’m only 5’1″ — and I like to eat) and workout on a more consistent basis.
I admit this hasn’t been easy since we moved from a quiet community in the suburbs with hiking and bike trails that a were easily accessible. Before, it was no big deal to just step our our front door and go for a jog. Our new home is exactly the opposite— we have almost no green spaces and a ton of traffic.
This is where Planet Fitness comes in. My husband has been a member at Planet Fitness since we moved and he has had nothing but great things to say about it. I initially didn’t join because of the the stigma that comes with going to a “gym”. I’m a serious amateur when it comes to machines and I hate the feeling of not knowing how to do something. And even if I am using a machine properly, I worry that others are judging. Typing that out and reading it makes me feel crazy— but I know this is a real concern for some women.
My husband promised me Planet Fitness it not at all like that, and they even promote it as a Judgement Free Zone® – a non-intimidating, hassle-free, welcoming environment that makes everyone feel comfortable.
I took a tour with him and was super impressed with the facility, but even more impressive was the PRICE! Planet Fitness is only $10 a month without a commitment!
Plus, there’s a new member special going on now for the New Year:
From Jan. 1 – 11, new members can join any Planet Fitness location for just $1 down and then $10 a month with no commitment!
Yep— Just $1 will get you started and there’s no long-term commitments. You can cancel your membership at anytime and it’s still $10 a month. Crazy!
I kind of feel stupid for not joining months ago because $10 is just a drop in the bucket when it comes to health & fitness. I pay for yoga that’s more than $10 a class, so even using Planet Fitness once or twice a week makes it worth becoming a member. Here’s a bit more about the company.
Planet Fitness focuses on general fitness and caters to “everyday people” – first time or occasional gym users versus fitness fanatics or body builders.
