Back to the Gym Again

Tuesday, January 6th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

I got a gym membership started again. I joined at the Oktibbeha County Hospital HealthPlex. It’s very close to where I live. Once I get home from work, I don’t go back out much and I definitely don’t want to drive back to campus to use the Sanderson Center. I also don’t like making the dog wait longer to be fed and do his business outside, so I go straight home after work. I’ll probably start tomorrow and try to go at least 3 days a week.

I went by there last week to take a look and find out how much it would cost. It costs $50 to start (January special, down from $100) and $29.75 a month. The monthly fee is cheaper than the Sanderson Center rate I believe. That’s a pretty cheap rate, but I still hate how much gym memberships cost. It seems like a deterrent to working out. You would think insurance would help with the cost as long as you visit a certain number of times a month. Working out does decrease your medical costs in the long run, doesn’t it?

The facilities at the HealthPlex aren’t the best in the world, but it is only temporary until I get the hell out of Starkville has everything that I need. One thing I could see was that when I went there were so many elderly people around that I felt like I was surrounded by death. There were 2 old ladies sitting around talking about how they like to cook cornbread. Maybe it’ll be different at the time of day that I do. At least I’ll have my iPod with me when I go.
