Who needs a gym membership?

Says the Guardian, suggesting that people should be able to go to their local park for an outdoor workout. That'll catch on...it's not as if people could just jog to the park, then round it, and home again, without the need for expensive equipment that will need maintained. Or alternatively, just ride their bikes to work and forget about all this silly "working out" nonsense altogether :-)

In a related vein:

"Let's have a moment of silence for every American stuck in traffic on their way to a health club to ride a stationary bicycle" - Representative Earl Blumenauer, US Congress

Let explain you my vision on the matter: gym memberships should be a part of a health insurance plan. That way people would begin to grow awareness on living a healthy life and companies offering health insurance would reduce costs in case of illness. Healthy people don't get ill unless something that can't be predicted happens.
