If you picture someone waking up at the crack of dawn, blurry-eyed and dragging their feet just to get to the gym for a workout, then this post is for you! Getting fit doesn’t have to mean spending a ton of money or forgoing the things that are important to you (like sleep). Below, I share my top 5 tips for getting fit on a budget.
1 Schedule workouts to fit your schedule—not everyone else’s.
To really make strides with improving your health and wellness, it’s important to include healthy activities into your lifestyle. Don’t like getting up way-too-early to get the gym? Fit gym time in your schedule after work or on weekends.
2 Join a gym for accountability.
Joining the gym with a friend makes it a fun way to socialize and stay active at the same time. Joining Fit4Less is an easy way to maintain your fitness routine—all you pay is a joining fee, then only $4.99 every 2 weeks.
3 Take a walk around the block (or walk to the gym).
With spring here at last and the days getting longer, get some fresh air and enjoy a quick (or long) walk outside wherever you are. This daily activity is completely free and can feel especially refreshing when most of your time is spent indoors.
4 Stretch or practice yoga in the morning or evening.
I’ve been leaving my yoga mat out in the living room lately so that I remember to do some 10 minute stretches in the morning before I start getting ready for work. In the evening, I stretch a bit more or have a relaxing yoga session before bed.
5 Go on an adventure on your days off.
My friends and I like to explore our city together and discover new parks, walking paths, or hiking trails. Hiking, cycling, and walking can be a lot of fun, and will keep you within a budget while still ensuring you stay fit and active.
