"The more you let go the higher your rise"

It was probably the best thing I ever did when I canceled my gym membership. Interestingly, I gained back my freedom and I  even exercise more in my room. Also, I exercise more outdoors, such as running in my local park or sport grounds. I am using minimal equipment as possible. And I am doing more body weight type of training which is functional and is helping to avoid injuries.

How many of you been feeling guilty not exercising enough? You want to look good, be fit,be healthy and just exercise more. But the gym is just not for you something's is not right in the typical gym nowdays? I am not being completely  anti-gym here, I like some of them which are quality focused, but not quantity, innovative and creative. I like to use the  swimming pool and sauna, because it's nice and comforting in the dark and cold winter months. But other than that, I think that a typical gym membership is a complete waste of money and your time.
