save money on fitness and health for summer


Summer is here! It’s time to have a weekend break or road trip with friends, or to join the throngs of bikini-clad bodies in different beach destinations. Most people aim to be fit this season not only to look good, but also to be healthy and active so they can take part and enjoy in many summer activities.

However, the struggle is real—keeping unwanted fats off is always a challenge for many who aspire to be healthy. Gym memberships can be pretty expensive and a lot of the food items labelled with either “healthy,” “diet,” or “organic” seem to require a bit more than your lunch money. The good thing is getting fit this bikini season can be achieved, and it does not have to be expensive. Here are alternative ways to have that summer-ready body:


1. Enjoy the outdoors.


Take advantage of the good weather and find an area where you can run, jog, play sports, hike, or just walk. All you need is a good pair of running shoes and you can run to get fit. Do you have kids? Play with them in your neighborhood playground—bonding with your loved ones can be an excellent exercise for you. It’s a win-win situation. Spend some time running or walking on a regular basis and you’ll be ready for bikini season before you know it.


See ShoppersGuide Directory for running shoes.


2. Look for free home workouts online.


Do a quick search on the internet and you will find an endless list of workout routines and exercises that you can do without leaving the house and shelling out money for memberships and/or fitness equipment. Home workouts are increasingly becoming popular nowadays because they are convenient, and best of all, free of charge. All you need is a computer and your commitment to do the online exercises regularly.


3. Install a fitness app on your mobile device.


Just like free home workouts online, there is a large selection of fitness apps that can help tone your muscles and shed those unwanted pounds. What’s great about these is that you can choose the app that suits your lifestyle and preferences. Do you want to have shapely legs but only have about 10 minutes per day to spare? There is surely an app that meets your needs. These fitness apps also offer convenience as many of the exercises can be done anytime, anywhere.


4. Get a membership.


No, this is not about the traditional membership with popular gyms. Consider taking the latest workout classes by getting a membership from innovative online fitness platforms such as KFit. These platforms offer unlimited access to their extensive network of gym and fitness partners at much lower monthly fees. Also, you get to choose classes and gyms that are close to your home or where you work, so working out is very convenient. Since these online fitness platforms offer a wide array of exercises, you can choose which suits your budget and you will also never get bored of the workouts available.

5. Take the do-it-yourself route.


Not having the time to exercise is one of the common excuses of people wanting to get fit. If home workouts and free apps will still not work for you, try the DIY approach with some simple tweaks to match your day-to-day activities. Walk during your lunch break. Use the stairs instead of the escalator or elevator. When commuting, alight two or three blocks from your house so you can walk. Do you like coffee? Skip the whipped cream and drink brewed coffee. Eat fruits instead of chips and sweets. Always bring your water bottle so you can combat the impulse to buy and drink sugar-filled beverages. These simple changes to your lifestyle will work wonders in the long run.




6. Cook your own food.


Getting fit is not just about regular exercise—what you eat is the other part of the equation. Do some grocery shopping and cook your own food. Not only will this be a lot less expensive compared to eating out and availing healthy meals delivery, but will ensure that you can make better food choices and keep track of your food intake.


With these alternative ways to get fit this summer without breaking the bank, there is really no reason for you not to look good and be healthy. You don’t need a lot of money. Just find a workout routine that works best for you and be mindful of what you eat. With a lot of determination and discipline, those unwanted pounds will eventually be replaced with toned muscles.
