Thinking 2019 might be your year? There’s one way to make sure! Get up, get active, and go get your FREE gym pass. A gym membership is the best way to ensure you have a healthy outlet and that you’re pursuing a healthy lifestyle. Keep reading for the top 5 reasons why getting a free gym pass is the best thing this year can bring.
Tools. The access to the equipment you have at a gym is unparalleled. Even if you invest in good running shoes or an elliptical for your home, it’s hard to beat paying a small monthly fee (or getting a FREE gym pass) for access to everything you could possibly want. You get equipment, you’ll get classes, and you’ll even get instruction in some cases. Just think, you wouldn’t sign up for an academic course without buying a notebook and pen. This is the same type of situation—equip yourself for success!
Motivation. There’s no motivation like seeing others get fit. Going to the gym can feel like a chore but being surrounded by others’ healthy lifestyle certainly pays off. Even if you don’t find yourself starting to love the practice itself, you’ll be paying for your access and that’s great motivation in that to get there. Put your money where your mouth is and bet on yourself this year that you can and will get fit. The free gym pass is the perfect way to start this journey.
Health benefits. You likely already know this is true if you’re pursuing a gym membership in the first place, but maybe you don’t know how true it is. Exercise is directly linked to a reduction in the risk for issues like heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, depression, and more. There are infinite health benefits to going to getting active, so if you’re not someone who would go running on their own, this is the best option out there.
Weather. Unless you live somewhere like Phoenix or Los Angeles where the weather is consistent year-round, you’ve probably encountered days where you’ve said, “Ugh I really don’t want to go running in the rain/snow/cold today.” While this is totally understandable, it also isn’t helping you be more productive in your work out. A gym membership will solve this problem instantly. You’ll never be able to make excuses because of the gym again, and you’ll be working out in all weather conditions in no time.
Sleep. Not only does the gym help you to unwind while you’re working out, but the gym actually helps you sleep better. Research shows that individuals who hit the gym 5-6 times a week are more likely to sleep better. Work out your body and get ready for bed at the same time. More sleep is also shown to help with weight loss if this is a health goal of yours for the new year, so the gym is quickly becoming a one-size-fix-all solution.
