Cost of Fitness

  • Percentage of adults who participate in 30 minutes of daily physical activity: less than 5%
  • Percentage of adults who do not meet the guidelines for both aerobic and muscle-strengthening activities: more than 80%
  • If these trends continue, by 2030, 50% of all US adults will be obese (half=115 million).
People still use cash?!

Average Monthly Cost of our Daily Necessities: I use the term ‘necessities’ loosely.

1 cup of coffee at a national chain: $63

1 haircut: $43

Dining out: $232

New clothing: $50

Alcoholic beverages: $40

1 used car payment: $381

Mortgage: $1500

Utilities: $250

Everything above this line is a necessity. We must drive to work, pay our bills, and take care of ourselves. But what about our body? Is your body a necessity? Allow me to rephrase, please, in case you didn’t quite understand where I was going. What’s the use of all these necessities if you don’t have a body to live in? Who is taking care of your BODY? Such a simple, four-letter word and we still don’t get it. If you’re not healthy and living each day in the best health you can be, then where is the necessity of all your necessities?

You’re in luck. Whoohoo! I can solve this riddle –

Average Monthly Cost of a 24/7 access membership to a facility offering you the ability to work out at over 4,000 other locations, train according to a customized curriculum designed for results, and receive the support required to notice those results: $178

Everyone has a price tag. What is yours?

I ask you this –

If money was not an object, what would you spend the most on?

Is time your most valuable commodity? If not, what is?

What do you currently spend the most on in your life?
