    cardio machine payback

    Post  Kyrose on Fri May 15, 2009 5:57 pm

    Just as a rough calculation, here are the assumptions made when CJ and I bought an eliptical back in November.

    Total cost of unit, tax included, $1200

    Cost of gym membership per person, $50 per month.
    Cost of fuel to go to gym $3 per trip
    number of trips per month estimated at 12
    monthly fuel cost $3 x 12 = 36 per month
    total cost per month of gym membership per month = $136
    1200/136=8.8 months until machine has paid for itself

    In reality, the machine has been used much more than this. i'd say that the 12 trips per month has been closer to an average of 16
    3x16=48
    1200/(memberships ( 100 )+gas( 48 ) ) = 8.1 months.

    So what that means for us, is that next month we hit pay off, and begin to actually save money thanks to our investment.

    As an added savings, we also now gain 30 minutes a day free time that would normaly be spent driving to and from the gym.

    Long story short: It makes sense to own your equipment
