You’ve heard this story before, getting charged for fees you have no say over, people crowding your space and inhibiting your natural rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Is this colonial Britain or your big box gym? July 4th is here, and it’s time for you to declare Independence from your gym! Today is a perfect opportunity to reclaim your home while gyms close for the holiday and to give working out at home a go.
