Gym membership: an investment in your health, body and future
OK, to address the "elephant in the room" - YES, we are a business and we are able to keep our doors because people/members purchase gym memberships. However, that being said, our #1 priority is to help change people lives through health and fitness and we do this by giving our community state of the art fitness facilities staffed with health and fitness experts to assist and educate our members. To address the concept of a gym membership, here is a message from Ultra Fit at Coop's founder, John Defendis.
"The truth of the matter is that everyone can afford to join a gym if they really want better health, a better quality of life and a better body. Letâ€™s face it, the average cost of a gym membership is about one dollar a day and anyone who truly understands the value of a gym membership would find a way to save a dollar a day.
A medium-size cup of coffee costs more than a dollar today. The simple truth is that a person cannot afford NOT to join a gym and take care of his body, health and future. Losing weight and getting fit is the best health insurance policy you can buy. My monthly health insurance policy costs 20 times the monthly cost of a gym membership and it offers nothing more than a $10,000.00 a year deductible. It is easy to recognize the fact that I can control my blood sugar levels, my cholesterol levels and my blood pressure through proper daily exercise and good Ultra Fit nutrition.
It is easy to do the math when you look at the investment in a gym versus that of a health insurance policy. Often times people will use the financial card as an excuse not to exercise. They can easily afford it financially but they lack the ambition to take control of their body and their health and do what is necessary to become healthy and fit.
With each passing month their weight slowly rises, and then one day they realize that they are obese, unhealthy and one strip of bacon away from a heart attack, or a chocolate covered raisin away from a diabetic coma.
My best recommendation for anyone who cares about their health and the future of their family is to make the small investment in a gym and a trainer and workout three to four days a week. It may surely save your life, add years to your life and give you the energy and quality of life that you truly deserve.
I am not trying to offend anyone. I am just telling the Hard Truth because I care.
It is important for you to know not to over commit and try to workout six days a week. A four-day workout program will give you the results you desire in losing weight and becoming healthy.
Get started soon and you will look and feel so much better by the time summer arrives!"
*Results may vary from person to person.
