Use Frugality As An Exercise Motivator



Great exercise can be free. And that fact in itself adds motivation for me to exercise. When I exercise to a great free online video, or get a long walk in a local park, I get that same kick that I get when I find a good book for peanuts in a thrift shop, or wonderful pants in a second hand store. Getting down on the floor for push-ups, sit-ups, planks, etc. is FREE and it brings great value. I am getting something for nothing!

  • Thanks for sharing. I agree 100%. - by LEANMEAN2
  • Love it. I don't have the money to pay anyone for me to lose weight or exercise. I have finally found something I love doing and have been doing it for 74 days in a row. I ride my recumbent bike with headphones on. It doesn't distract me. I can enjoy the rythum and listen to my body at the same time - by LADYSHERRY
