Exercise On The Cheap

Posted on January 3rd, 2014 by Discount Debbie

 

Is getting in shape one of your goals for this year? If so, you don’t have to pay an arm and a leg and sign an annual contract in order to make it happen. There are many ways to get in shape and pay little or no money at all to do it.

Get Out

One of my favorite ways to work out is to simply get out and walk or run. I have friends who take their children with them for a bike ride. If you have little ones at home, it takes planning. So, for me that means, either before my husband leaves for work or after he comes back. Neither of those are ideal times. But, it’s possible and I’ve done it. The short winter days have made it a bit more challenging. So, I usually get out on the weekends and do something else during the week (see below).

Turn On The TV

Since having children, I’ve learned to enjoy working out using a workout DVD. I used to think that a work out DVD would not be as challenging as the workouts I was accustomed to. However, I discovered some very challenging instructors. And, if you’re limited to your house, you can really make it work.

Incidentally, this is a good time of the year to buy work out DVDs. You’ll see lots of exercise DVDs and equipment being discounted this month.

Find A Routine

If you look online, you will find a wide range of workouts you can do at home on your own without a DVD or weights. Just you. It typically looks something like this:

20 Burpees

15 Push Ups

15 Sit Ups

20 Squats

Plank (45 seconds)

(Repeat 3 times)

That’s just something I made up. Here’s another example. You can find the one that suits you best, or make up one!

It doesn’t have to cost or cost much to get in shape!

Is working out on your list of goals for 2014?
