    Thus far my gym membership has either been factored into my tuition at the university or given as a present by my parents. I don't take any supplements besides fish oil and a multiv so $10/month, don't use any type of gear, chemical, assistance, or otherwise. The grocery bill is the worst but so far my dad is still paying for that too :bowdown:

    I honestly don't want to know how much I've spent on supplements in a yearly period. At least the gym is "free" if you don't count tuition.

    Currently my University gym is free and only supps I take are protein, multi, GTE, VitE.... So per month I spend roughly $12 on average I would say.

    Back at home though, gym membership is $40 and when cutting I take more supps like protein, creatine, arginine, tons of vitamins... so all in all, at the most about $65 a month.

    Typically it balances inbetween at an average of $25-30 a month.

    Food is probably a lot. I dont pay anything for a membership and I dont use any supplements other than whey.

    Yeah, I didn't think about food.

    Trying to eat with a "bodybuilder mentality" is definitely setting me back in the wallet. All the chicken breasts, steak, beef, cheese, olive oil, etc... that I work into my diet cost a good $200 a month extra.

    If I didn't care about protein, good fats, healthy carbs, etc... etc... my grocery bill would be cut down considerably. Having a diet like the majority of the country (high in refined carbohydrates) would be much easier and cheaper.

    gym = 120 (5 conditioning classes a week, 24 hour gym access, bjj, boxing and wrestling)

    Food = probably about 500/month total grocery bill to eat really clean, but .. eating out and dirty would probably cost more...

    about 100/month on supps

    Honestly though, I think in the end it saves me some money - eating clean and working out = i'm not eating out and drinking, etc.

    don't care since it's not hampering funds to my other hobbies.... if worse comes I'd drop them before dropping my gym membership/supplements
