I drink a lot of coffee.
There’s a Starbucks 10mins from the gym and I work in various coffee shops (I’m writing this in ‘Eat17’) in town.
I pay anywhere from £2-3 a coffee.
I easily ‘drink out’ seven times a week.
£14-21 / week.
£56-84 / month.
Fucking hell that’s a wake-up call for me reading that in black and white!
I spend more on coffee than most people do on a gym membership.
Membership at KORU (where I PT) Gym = £35/month.
Coffee is an inexpensive, highly available product that provides an immediate buzz.
Gym membership is a perceived luxury that on its own guarantees nothing. It requires substantial work on your part to make it worthwhile.
Coffee is instant, short-term gratification.
Gym membership is a long-term investment in your health.
I’m not here to bash coffee. I’m here to tell you that for £25-40/month a gym membership is an absolute bargain.
It has the potential to be one of the best investments you ever make.
I love coffee.
I love living a healthy life more.
