I’ve been working out a lot recently and really enjoying it. Unfortunately, there comes a lot of unforeseen expenses that comes with a new hobby (like working out). For me, that expense is mainly the variety of classes I’ve been enjoying:
LA Fitness – $20/month. This is my main gym membership and I use it now for the weights more than the classes. However, I’ve started taking bootcamp and yoga classes so I’m definitely using that feature as well.
LA Fitness, personal trainer – $120/month. I’ll be losing this expense after February. You can read about my experiences here.
Zumba class – $35/10 classes (or ~$14/month). My favorite instructor teacher Zumba at a private studio so I followed her from LA Fitness to there. Classes are once a week so it works out to only about $14/month. Totally worth it.
Spin class – $35/5 classes. This was a Groupon offer, again with my Zumba instructor so I bought it. I have only 1 class left and then I have to decide what to do. I’m loving it though but if I buy a 10 class package, it’s $125. I’m not sure I want to spend that – it works out to about $30/month (classes once a week).
If I decide to keep up with the spin class, once I’m done with the personal trainer, I’ll be paying about $64/month for all the fitness things I love. I know LA Fitness offers Zumba and Spin classes but I go for the instructor – she’s amazing and inspires me to keep working hard. For that reason, I think it’s worth the extra money.
