Lose Pounds, Not Dollars

45 million Americans are enrolled in health clubs and many new members are signing up right now, fueled by a New Year's resolution to get fit. But be careful: You could lose a few dollars in the process. Gym memberships can carry hidden fees and be really hard to quit. And if you buy the latest fitness equipment as seen on TV? Don't count on the money back guarantee. On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll talk about how to get fit without going broke. And how to stay motivated once the fitness bug bites. It might be as easy as a walk in the park. Tuesday at 9:00 a.m. on 90.3.
