The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    I pay like 115 US a year currently, but when I turn 18 it goes up to 195 a year, damn gym screwing me out of my money, lol
    Second place is just a generic term your mom created to make you not feel bad about losing, because second place is actually first loser!

    In Memphis, it is illegal for a woman to drive by herself, unless a man is walking or running infront of the vehicle, waving a red flag in order to warn approaching pedestrians and motorists.

    I do the same too. In fact you do pay for using the gym, they add it to yous standard administration fees.
    So Since I pay for it I might as well use it.
    Train.

    $32 a month or so.

    3 year contract.
    Squats work better than supplements.

    yeah i've noticed that the best gym deals come with huge outrageous contracts. I know the Powerhouse gym here in town has a deal where you pay $19.95 a month for a 3 year contract. If you do a 2 year contract its like $25 a month. A 1 year contract is like $30 but no cntract is like $45 a month. On top of the $200 enrollment fee.

    I have no trouble with the long contract. I love the gym, and if I move or something, I can get out of the contract.
