How can I legally terminate my gym membership?

I signed a 2 year contract last summer. I have not used their facilities due to my schedule. I am on disability, and work part-time, but my part time job is ending soon. They say my only options are either continue to pay the $70 a month for the remainder of the contract, or “buy out” 2/3 of my remaining time. That would be over $2000. The $70 a month membership fee is steep enough, no way can I afford $2000. Do I have any legal way out of this contract?
