Spring is in the air, finally. It’s time to come out of hibernation and peel off the extra layers of clothing. If, like me, you’re now lamenting those extra serves of sticky date pudding, then your mind is searching for ways to reverse the months spent under a blanket rather than outdoors being active. Walk through any major shopping strip and you’ll be met with fit and charming sales staff trying to lure you into signing up to the local gym and personal training sessions. And the offers will be tempting… more than 4.6 million Australians are members of a gym. A staggering $1.4 billion will be spent on fitness this year. What starts with the good intention of getting back into shape, sometimes results in heavy sales pressure and lock-in contracts. The final blow – you might be stuck paying for an expensive membership that doesn’t get used.
