    My gym is over

    Hello.


    For instance: I had a subscription to the sport gym. Some days ago my time ran out. Can I say to my friend: "Sorry, I'm not going there today. My gym is over". How would you say?

    Thanks in advance.
    Boris.
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    Re: My gym is over

    What you say might depend on whether the expiry of your membership was accidental or on purpose. Here are some possibilities:

    I can't go today. I forgot to renew my membership!
    I decided not to renew my membership. It's too expensive.
    I'm not going to the gym anymore.
    I've quit!

    However you choose to say it, "My gym is over" is definitely incorrect. It suggests to me (in a non-grammatical way) that the gym that you belong to/used to belong to has closed down.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
