FitTips: Fitness Gyms Cheaper Than Buying A Summer RPAC Membership

Summer. Summer. Summer. To quote high school musical, it’s time to chill out, get some sunshine, and have your heart take a chance. But, that’s not every students’ goals. Some of us don’t have time for relationships, sunburns, and not doing things. We have summer jobs, classes, and you know…Fortnite.

But what do we have time for? What we do year-round anyway. Get swole, or at least pretend we are while we walk by the long mirrors and send out mass-Snaps.

Gyms are expensive though, and most OSU facilities require you to pay for a summer semester pass. We ESPECIALLY don’t have time for another 100 bucks to be tossed to Ohio State so football players can have newer segways to ride around. And sometimes, it’s just nice to get off campus.

Be real. You just need a cheap place to get in, workout, shower, and get going to all the other summer plans you have. We’ve got you covered.

Here’s the best bang-for-your-buck workout facilities that are just off campus so you can save some cash for more V-Bucks, or, if you’re a girl…that new Rihanna Fenty collection? I’m trying my best here.
