Staying Active on a Budget

Functional Training Equipment in a Gym

These times are tough for many people and the reality is things are only getting tougher. Whatever your financial state, you need to invest in your health and you don’t need to be a big spender to get fit. ‘I don’t have the right trainers’ and ‘I checked the weather and it’s gonna rain all week’ and, and, leave your excuses on your bedside chair (table if you got it like that).

When it comes to exercise you don’t need much to get going except a go-getting attitude and the desire to see the job through. I’m going to run down a few of the things you can do that won’t cost you much and will benefit you even more in your weight-loss journey.

Gym:

Join a Gym with an Off-peak membership if you’re really squeezed for money. Hopefully you have a budget gym in your local area and budget gym doesn’t mean poor quality equipment or advice from the Personal Trainers. You’ll find weights machines and cardiovascular machines as well as free-weights for you to use. The experience of the Fitness Instructors and Personal Trainers are also worth enquiring about, to reduce the chance of injury and meet the goals you set for yourself rather than wasting 6 months+ trying to figure things out alone.

Team Sports:

Sports from Football to Cricket or Rugby are social sports that give you a feeling of community and connection with your teammates. At the same time, you’ll be burning a lot of calories, strengthening muscles used in your desired sport and raising your mood at the same time. Joining a team is usually inexpensive but may be a seasonal thing and so to maintain your levels of exercise you will want to get involved in another sport alongside that which you do or jog on a regular basis and the likes of that.

Stair Climbing:

According to The University of New Mexico’s Health Sciences Center research, you burn 15 calories per 3 flights of stairs (average flight of stairs being 12 steps). If you live in a house, estate block or you work in a high-rise building; maybe you have a local tube station or large shopping centre with an escalator – you have access to stairs that you can burn some serious calories with – if you don’t mind going up-and-down for a good 20minutes. Just bring water and comfortable trainers and get ready to build your leg strength.
