Fancy home gym equipment, organic food and a wardrobe of the latest fitness apparel can be pricey, but consumer savings expert  Andrea Woroch says that doesn’t have to be the case. “As a young girl, I tagged along with my mom on shopping trips and learned that you don’t have to spend a lot to look good,” she explains.
 
Woroch herself ranks health as one of her top priorities (besides helping others save money), and loves bike riding, hiking, running, swimming and skiing—”anything and everything that gets me moving.”
 
So we asked Woroch to share her insider intel about how we all can keep our wallets happy while staying fit and looking and feeling great.
 
 
1. Subscribe. Group coupon emails offer deals for more than clothes shopping and restaurant meals! “Sites like LivingSocial and Dealeryoften offer discounts for health clubs, fitness studios and outdoor activities at up to 70 percent off,” Woroch says. Another plus? There’s no long-term commitment, so if you like, you can just continue trying new things based on what is offering a coupon!    
 
 
2. Take advantage of free trials. “Request free or deeply discounted trial memberships from various gyms and fitness studios you’re thinking about joining,” Woroch suggests. This way you can find your favorite before getting locked in with a location that may not be your favorite.
