Thinking about stopping going to the gym

I've been going for years now but I think it might be time to stop soon. It just doesn't do it for me anymore, it's not really helping me in any way. I don't get any benefits anymore, hasn't helped me with women, money, or meeting people. I'm not getting any joy out of it anymore like I used to It also costs me about $600 a year.

So yeah after lifting for many years, on and off I admit, it might be time to finally call it quits and move on with my life, so my new year resolution was to quit the gym.

    Cost angle is understandable, but if you’re quitting only because of social reasons that’s pretty gay. The gym is for health first, and stopping lifting isn’t going to help you either physically or socially. Do you actually put an effort in to try to meet people at the gym or do you just grind with your headphones in avoiding eye contact? I’d bet it’s probably the latter

      I can't even afford headphones, this new wireless shit is pricey. But yeah I don't talk to anybody.

      You don't go to the gym for women they might as well be a stripper but they do it for attention which is way worse.

    why won't you just invest a few hundred bucks into some barebones equipment (bar, rings, barbell, weights, maybe adjustable dumbbells and some other shit) and start working out at home whenever you have time w/o really obsessing over it? exercising is usually better than not exercising

    Do you actually try to get better at anything though? It makes all the difference

      Actually I'm thinking about stopping trying all together, I've tried my whole life and it didn't get me anywhere in the end. I'm just tired of this life. I think I want to give up, I want to capitulate and be free. I'm tired of all this self improvement shit, and waging and grooming and putting in effort for nothing in return.

          I have been to a lot of fighting game tournaments. The ones where sweaty ultra nerd neckbeards participate. Most of them are alright but let me tell you there is nothing to be jealous of. Most of them dont even enjoy what they do. They do it because they have nothing else and its the only thing they know.

        I stopped trying at most everything EXCEPT for the gym and it's been paying off. I literally ONLY work to get enough money for rent, food, and basic necessities. I only need to work 7 days out of the month to get what I need each month (5 roommates ina big house) and spend the rest of the time just resting and surfing the internet. I plan on being a PT in a few years when I look really good (need to appear authoritative and fit) so that I can make a ton of cash for a small amount of time spent making it, or if it's really good I might actually put effort into it to grow a stack and get my own house or something.

        You sound burnt out. Maybe you should halt everything like me and just focus on having a no stress life and then slowly add things back in without sacrificing your quality of life. Add things in at your own pace. I've given up on having friends or money or my own house or any of the things like having hobbies and a family for the foreseeable future. But the thing is, I'm 100% good with that. My life is fricking awesome now and I don't stress about shit. If this is as bad as it's going to get then that's a pretty damned good life. It's so peaceful. I don't have to put up with peoples' shit anymore or have to have a homosexual-ass slave driving boss that drains my soul. There are far worse things than not making progress in something constantly. You could be in a loveless sexless marriage with some b***h that cheats on you and is conspiring to take all of your shit and send you to prison. Just take a moment to soak it all in. Take some time to set up a good standard of living. Live with dignity. Unplug your mind from the rat race for a bit and just watch it all unfold from a neutral perspective. Piece your spirit back together. You don't have to do more than us necessary if you're willing to give up all but the bare essentials. You may find that you never wanted any of that shit anyway, and if you did, then you can work on getting it later.

          You have 5 roommates but they aren’t your friends?

            All family. We all pay rent for a nice middle class suburban house. They don't count as friends because they're family. I list them as roommates because it's not a bum situation where people stay for free. House is big enough that we don't even really have to see each other if we don't want to. I pay like $360 month for rent.

            I have a couple of old friends I still talk to every once in a while. But they're fricking weirdos now that think that life is something that they have to suffer alone so they just sit in their own house that they pay quadruple what I pay just so they can be lonely and isolate themselves for months at a time. Idk I guess they just think that being alone and miserable is what adults are supposed to do or something. All the other friends I had were lost due to attrition. Moving away, dying, getting married (rip), or some other such circumstances where we just don't talk to each other anymore

    Why do you spend $50 a month on a gym membership?

    Give yourself about half an hour to feel bad about yourself. And then after that find a goal work towards.

    If you're serious, then stop going. Do what you want but keep fit in some way.

    If you're demoralizing, everyone else should ignore you and keep going until they make it.

    Simple as.

    Try adding more specialization. If your already as big as you want it might be worth training for something niche.
