Join a Gym
Joining a gym often seems like a big commitment: joining fees and extended contracts can be off-putting, especially if you're trying to save money for special occasions. However, there are plenty of money-saving alternatives out there that won't break the bank. If you're not convinced you'll make the most out of a monthly gym contract, there are also Pay As You Go and off-peak membership options to explore, for example.
Exercise DVDs are a great way of squeezing in a quick workout in your own home. Davina McCall is a go-to exercise guru following her string of chart-topping DVDs. Each DVD offers several different short routines, and there are also easier exercise alternatives provided for those who are new to the world of living-room fitness.
Speaking in an interview about her steady rise to the top of the fitness charts, Davina confessed: "By stealth, I have quietly muscled my way into the fitness arena. Up until 25, the only fitness I did was night-clubbing". If you're also a newbie to the world of sit-ups and stomach crunches, an exercise DVD may be the perfect way to ease you into a healthy routine in no time.
Choosing the right footwear should also be a part of your exercise regime, as you'll need trainers that will give proper support to your feet and help improve your posture. Skechers Shape-Ups are a great way to help you tone up and keep in shape while going about everyday activities, like walking the dog or whizzing around the supermarket. Designed to maximize the natural effect that walking has on the muscles in your legs, bottom, back and abdomen, Shape-Ups are a good option for those looking to get into shape with ease.
