I'd ditch the gym as well. The wife and I used to go to a Washington Sports Club after we got married. After 6 months it just got way too old. I wound up picking up a dumbbell set (5lb. through 50lb), dumbbell rack, and bench for significantly less than a 1 year membership. Nothing quite like coming home after a days work, hitting up the mini basement gym, shower, and make dinner/eat dinner all before 7pm.
The greater the achievement the more difficult the path. The easy road is granted to those less fortunate as a consolation prize.
