Americans spend billions of dollars each year on Gym Memberships and Home Gym Equipment. Sixty percent of new gym members never return to a gym after the first three months. Though some members simply don’t like their chosen gym, there are other reasons why people drop gym memberships.
The busiest time for gyms is directly following the holiday season. Many people believe that they will join a gym, drop fifty pounds, and look great … right after indulging in a last bit of apple pie. Though these people often make it to their chosen gym, they spend a few months lifting weights and never return. Why does this happen? Simply put, the number one reason why people drop gym memberships is lack of motivation.
Sure, losing weight sounds like a great idea right after a large holiday meal, but when the days start to get a bit warmer and the spring air starts to come abound, who wants to be stuck in a gym? Most people simply hate the idea of breathing stale gym air … though you won’t find them enjoying the great outdoor either. Let’s be realistic – life is far too exciting to waste exercising … and this is exactly why most people never keep their gym memberships.
Another reason why people drop gym memberships is that they do not feel comfortable inside of a gym. Once a person begins to feel strange and awkward in a gym, excuses start to prevent them from working out. For example, if you notice that everyone at your gym seems to have been born wearing spandex, the very thought of squeezing into lycra may make your skin crawl. So, what happens? Suddenly, you become too tired; too sick; or too busy to go to the gym – the mind has an amazing way of helping us to opt out of a gym membership.

This is my personal conviction…. We are all given 1 body for 1 purpose by 1 creator…. we ought to take care of it!
You were bought at a PRICE….therefore, honor God with your body
~1 Corinthians 6:20
We each have a body given to us by God. Isn’t it our responsibility to take care of it? That’s what Paul tells us to do in Romans 12:1 when he writes –
“And so, dear brothers and sisters, I
plead with you to give your bodies to
God because of all he has done for you.
Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—
the kind he will find acceptable.
This is truly the way to worship him.”
Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
~1 Thessalonians 5:11
When we TRAIN ourselves to live DISCIPLINED lives, taking care of our health, promoting positive habits and encouraging one another to do the same, we can live a more DISCIPLINED life spiritually, devoting ourselves to improving our personal development, relationships and ultimately…..PLEASING in God’s sight!
