I purchased a membership at the rock Climbing gym last night. It was 60 bucks. 60 bucks! for 1 month!

That means, a year will end up running $720. Ridiculous!

mike ‘cheap-o ‘ d. is having an extremely difficult time dealing with this. I love Climbing so much but I also know that if I saved this money I’d be in much better shape financially down the road. 720 bucks is a lot of money. There must be an alternative!

Perhaps instead of fighting them, I should just apply for a night/weekend job at the gym. hmm. that’d rock.

har har. get it? that’d ROCK. har har.

    $60 a month?
    Can you go there any time you want?
    Do they give you things?

    I think I like rock climbing as much as I like watching movies and i’m only willing to pay Netflix those $20 a month to do that. So that would be too much for me. Unless this was a real gym with other things to do, then it might be more value.

    On the other hand, you are not a college student anymore so get out there stop being cheap and stimulate the economy!

    I did some recon to get a better idea on this cost:
    A month at the Texas Rock Gym (6000 sq ft of rock climbing fury i’m told) is $50 but if you sign up for a whole year, its $360.

    To compare (apples to oranges really making this meaningless), the really hip new health club in town with plasma screens and cool skyline view costs $1,150. The slightly less ridiculous club down the street from me runs around $680. But they don’t have rock climbing.

    So in conclusion, you need to look into a year membership if you want to be cheap.
