Tips To Get Fit The Frugal Way

Although we all want to be fit and healthy, many of us don’t exercise as much as we should do. This may be lack of motivation; it may also be lack of funds.

Many of us have happily trotted down to join a gym, and have then gone very pale and broken out in a cold sweat when faced with what it will cost us. Well I’m hear to tell you that all this expense is unnecessary; you can get fit and healthy at very little cost, if any at all.

Being frugal when in comes to exercising doesn’t mean that you are missing out on anything and you are saving all that money too. It shouldn’t cost us to lose weight and get fit, that defeats the purpose of the exercise if you ask me. You will want a new wardrobe to show off your new figure, but you will have spent all your money getting it and it will be hidden under your now, too big ,clothes.

Walking and running are two of the best exercises you can do, and won’t cost you a penny.

Many people lay out a lot of money on gym equipment for their homes, then quickly lose interest and they stand gathering dust. Check the classified ads to pick up some great bargains.

Your circle of friends can prove invaluable when trying to track down second hand gym equipment for the home. Also check out ads for garage sales and have a look around these. You can pick up great quality equipment for pennies, they are just glad to get rid of them.

Make use of everyday items around the home to exercise with. You can use gallon containers of milk or large tins as weights.

Put extra vigor into your everyday household tasks. If you have a slight sweat and are slightly out of breath you are burning calories.

Two highly effective and completely free forms of exercise to do in your home are sit ups and press ups.

If you want a structured exercise program, get yourself one of the many free exercise videos available on the internet.

So there you have it, a frugal exercise program can benefit you just as much as the expensive ones. This difference is that you now have the cash to spend on yourself instead of giving it to the gyms and still get rid of stomach fat fast.
