    I used to lift 5 days a week at my university gym. Now I'm home for Christmas break for a month, and I'm broke. I basically have no weights at home to use. The only gym in my area that offers 1 month contracts is Golds, and that is $69. I want to sign up there but since I'm broke, I can't pay it now, and I don't get my paycheck for 2 weeks. I wish I could just sign up now and pay the fee later. I don't have a credit card so that isn't an option. I made so much progress over the past 3.5 months and I feel like a piece of shit for just sitting around doing nothing. Just thought I'd rant a little...

    Dude give golds your checking account number or something.

    And who the fuck doesn't have a credit card? They are excellent for building your credit score if you aren't a dumbass with them. Get one.

    I'm 18, no one will accept me. I try all the major credit cards, even the student cards. I tried one from my bank and still got declined. I just got approved for a Capital One card, but I won't get it for awhile. I have no money in my checking account number, what is the point of giving them that? Unless they will accept it to sign up and won't charge it for 2 week?

    Plyometrics and other bodyweight exercises can do a lot to keep you in shape if weights are not available.

    Give them a bad check, it'll be about 10 days to two weeks before they are onto you anyways. :big grin:

    Well I found a gym that is 5 minutes away that is $60 with a student discount for a month. Owner was nice as shit and we worked it out so my membership started now and I can pay later. Had my first workout there a few hours ago and the place is nice. All the equipment is brand new, and there is no one there. I had the whole place to myself for almost 2 hours.
