Exercising on a Low Budget


For a while, there was a strong belief within the community that the only way to exercise was by obtaining a gym membership. Although joining and going to a gym is a great way to exercise, stay fit and healthy, it is not the only way. There are many different places and many different ways to exercise, whether it’s through a sporting activity, or in a calm and relaxed yoga room. However if you are looking for a form of exercise and one of a low budget, then here are some suggestions for you.


Here are three places you can work out for free.

At Home


There is nothing like having your own personal gym sanctuary in the comfort of your own home, where there is no rules, no social interference and nothing to hide, it’s your own domain. You create rules and play your own game.


There is no membership fee, and available to access 24/7.  For some people the closest gym could be up to 30 minutes away, working out at home requires you to simply put on the motivational stance.


The only disadvantage to working out at gym is maintaining your motivation and staying clear of distractions.


And before you ask, no, you do not need to buy that expensive home gym equipment if you can’t afford it, you can work out through using an arm chair to do step ups or knee ups, from the floor to do a core workout, the options are endless. If you are having trouble, simply brain storm on Google.

At the Beach


If you don’t mind the occasional sand getting in-between your toes as it slips into your shoes, then the beach is also a great cost effective way to exercise.


A great quality about doing cardio on the beach is it’s easier on your joints and also provides resistance. Doing lunges squats or standard push-ups on the beach can also enhance your workout.  But if you feel doing something a little more calm, bring a towel and do some yoga exercises.

At the Park


However, if you’re not keen on sand in your shoes, or don’t have the resistance to exercise at home, the park might be for you.


The kid’s equipment is ideal for mimicking a workout that you would do at a gym. The swings can be used to do suspended push-ups or you can use the monkey bars to do simple pull ups and dips.


The grass would be a great soft spot to work on your core exercises and there is always a bench around to work on your quads and calves.


With just a little creativity, you can exercise everywhere and anywhere, at any time and place. All you need is a creative mind and a positive mind and attitude.
