Getting Fit Does Not Have To Cost A Fortune!

Mar 1, 2008
All of us realize the importance of staying fit. It is said that a healthy body is the home to a healthy mind. A healthy and fit body results in a happy and confident state of mind.

Some of us love to exercise at home with our own set of fitness equipments and some of us believe in enrolling at an expensive gym to achieve the same results. Irrespective of this, it is important to draw up a regular exercise regimen and then stick to it. So long as one can achieve the end result of staying fit, it does not matter if one is into yoga, boxing or weight training.

To stay fit, it is not necessary to buy a membership of an expensive gym. Since most of us, because of our hectic professional lives, cannot afford to attend the gym four to five times a week, it is prudent to find some cost effective exercise equipments for oneself and work out at home. And come to think of it, unlike in a gym, you would not have to share the exercise equipments with others.

You can save yourself the time it takes to drive down to your gym, the agony of finding the parking space and then the stress of driving all the way back home. You would also not have to wait for your turn to use the equipment you want to work out with!

You can set up your gym at home in the basement or even your garage. If you can spend some quality time in looking out for the equipments you want to buy for using at home, you can get really good deals. It is possible to buy second hand equipments that can last you for a lifetime.

Most of us generally use jump rope, weight bench, dumbbells and plate weights with a bench press barbell. It is possible to buy them at a price that would be lower than one months subscription at an expensive gym!

Setting up your own gym does not mean compromising on the quality of workout. What one needs to realize is that there are many exercise that can be done without spending money. How many of us know that using the stairs is a good workout for our cardiovascular system? There is no point is spending money behind running, push-ups and jumping jacks! Getting into shape does not mean spending your hard earned money.
