Why are we here. To give you alternatives.
The Alternative to Pricey Gym Membership
Many of us could really do with a health kick and the gym is the first place that comes to mind. However, membership can cost a lot and finding cheap gyms or alternatives can be the best way of losing pounds from your belly not from your wallet.
Keeping fit and healthy is a modern phenomenon which is at the forefront of our minds on a daily basis. With the government Change4Life programme in full swing and every other television show telling us how dangerous it is to be overweight or underweight, it’s no wonder the demand for affordable and cheap gyms is increasing. However, if you don’t fancy finding an affordable gym in your area there are plenty of DIY options you can try out from home.
OK, this probably sounds like the most boring exercise ever but it does the job. Get your favourite tunes blasting and start marching up and down the stairs, after a few goes you’ll soon start to feel puffed out and the exercise will be doing its job.
Run for Fun
You might have a friend who enters all those fun runs and marathons and you think they’re mad but have you ever even tried? You can start with a brisk walk, step up to a jog and within a few months you’ll be running with the best of them and what’s more, if you’re feeling charitable you could start entering marathons and fun runs which give you the extra impetus to keep on training.
Simple things like taking the stairs instead of the lift at work or walking your kids to school can make all the difference. Every last bit of exercise counts and getting out and about in the fresh air genuinely makes life seem a lot better anyway. The extra cash you save can be used to buy a new wardrobe when you’ve lost some weight or to invest in some healthy cookery books.
Free Online Programs
The wonder of YouTube means you can find aerobics exercises and classes for free. However, you always need to exercise caution and do a little research. Don’t just copy anyone. Perhaps you can find an accredited personal trainer who is offering their services for free via their YouTube channel and then you know you’re onto a winner. As little as 20 minutes a day can be enough to make a difference and utilising the wonders of the World Wide Web means you don’t have to invest loads of cash.
Cheap Gym Options
If none of these options work for you and you are committed to finding a gym that fits your needs, there are really good quality yet cheap options available. Cheap gyms can be found across all major cities in the UK and there are a range of options and packages out there that mean you can avoid the expensive membership deals that build up and up. In fact, pay as you go options are even a possibility, meaning you can pay for the day and then move on, removing the need to commit significant time on a weekly or monthly basis to your gym. You really can come and go as you please.
