You want to shed some pounds ahead of the holiday season, but gym memberships and fitness classes can cost a lot of money!
GetHealthU.com's Chris Freytag has four ways to exercise on a budget:
Create a home gym:
You don't need a designated space in your home to dub your "home gym." You can buy easily-stored items like a yoga mat, dumbbells and resistance bands to use in your living room.
Use your own bodyweight:
Gravity is your friend! Getting into a daily routine of pushups, situps, etc can kickstart anyone's fitness regimen. You can also try using a chair for tricep dips!
Try your community offerings:
If social interaction is what you need, you will find a lot of free activities in your neighborhood. Try an online search for community centers and pop-up yoga classes near you.
Join an online program:
There are many different online fitness classes you can watch and participate from home. Get Healthy U TV provides live and taped classes daily. Go to http://go.gethealthyutv.com/gold Use the coupon code CHRISGOLD20 and get the whole first year for $20 - that is approx $1.60 per month!
