Money-saving tips when you want to get fit without a gym

Get Active

It is common for a lot of us that one of our new year’s resolutions is to get fit. However, with soaring prices of gym memberships and lengthy contracts, we might often be put off getting into fitness.

Incorporating physical activity into your lifestyle does not have to break the bank. There are multiple ways in which you can get fit without breaking the bank.

Here are a few money-saving tips when you want to get fit without a gym:

Follow free exercise videos

In this day and age of social media, there has been a massive influx of health and fitness coaches who make free YouTube videos that guide you through a workout. From High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) to yoga, you’ll be able to find a channel that fits your needs.

Utilise your body weight

If you want to get into weight training, you do not necessarily need the gym. Your body weight is a great tool to use as resistance and is great for strength training. Planks, press-ups, sit-ups and burpees all utilise your body weight – it is a great and completely free way to burn off some calories.

Enjoy the great outdoors

A lot of us are working from home at the moment and we often forget that going out for a walk can not only keep us fit and healthy but is also beneficial for our mental health – spending time in nature could help in eliminating stress from work. Taking brisk walks outdoors or going for a jog are both good ways to get those extra steps in – and are completely free! 

Opt for pay as you go 

Salespeople will often push you to commit to a long-term fixed contract but you can always opt for the ‘pay as you go’ option. It is an ideal alternative when you have a busy schedule or just want to test the waters on working out at a gym. This allows you to have more flexibility and prevents you from committing to a lengthy contract.
