Price of Fitness vs Cost of Fitness

Everyone is concerned about the price they pay for products and services they use.  Normally people assume the price they pay for something is directly related to the value received.   If that is the case what is the cost of a product or service? Costs includes the development, manufacturing, and all expenditures associated with the product or service.

So, in regards to the price of fitness or the cost of fitness, you really want to examine the true costs of fitness.  Here is why. If a gym membership price is $30 a month and personal training is another $250 per month, the numbers show a total of $280 a month as the price paid.  Now the question is, how do you measure the cost of this monthly amount?  It depends on your current age, goals, and health status.   If you are overweight, have diabetes, arthritis, high cholesterol, or recovering from surgery the cost of not having fitness can be greater than you think long-term.  Being proactive about your fitness levels can pay future dividends in your quality of life. In most definitions, this now could be called an investment.

When you are considering the price you pay for fitness or the cost of not having it, think about trying to retire without saving. You can do it, but at what cost. Just a thought…
