Definition: A gym membership.
Sample usage: “I’d cancel my gymbership because I haven’t gone in weeks, but the shame I would feel is still greater than my shame for not going.”
Popularity: It’s a limber-sounding word, and it makes sense when you see it. When you hear it, not so much. “I got a gymbership!” “What?” “A gym membership.” “Have you lost anything yet?” “Well, so far, one syllable.”
