A lot of people join clubs in the new year so they can work out. It seems to me it would be easier to have a piece of equipment at home to do it at your convenience. No one watching and no distractions, no traveling, just you and 20 minutes and you're done. I know, for some, it's a social thing, but you can get just as good a workout at home. Plus, you won't be touching all that infected equipment..........
