Must-Read: Cheap Fitness
We all want to get in shape. It’s not that we want to look like pudgy monstrosities, just sinking into our couches while we toke up on some pot and eat an entire batch of brownies in between Doritos Locos runs. It’s just two reasons that makes it difficult: (1) Working out is hard! You actually have to get out there and physically move around and stuff! But also (2) It costs a decent amount of money to really get fit. Not only do you have to deal with buying monthly passes to workout centers and what-not, but you also have to buy new clothes, new shoes, and start working on your diet by heading on over to the fitness store and buying whatever’s in those giant plastic bottles. Spending money is a necessity in order to get in shape. But it may not actually be necessary to spend THAT much. Like anything, there are ways to cut corners while still keeping all of the main factors of the workout intact.
So today we’re heading to Men’s Fitness where they go through the various ways how to save money while still working out. Among the tips that they have in their repertoire:
If you’re serious about your health, your go-to drink is water. Some people prefer bottled water, while others like filtered water. If you’re on a budget, however, depending on where you live, your best bet is likely tap water. It’s much cheaper than either of the alternatives, and in most areas the quality of water rivals the other options. Research the quality of the tap water in your area. By simply omitting the cost of bottled or filtered water, you may find you’re saving as much as $100 per month.
So head on over to the website in order to check out what other tips they have to keep your fitness cheap and ready to go.
