If you have cable there are lots of free exercise videos On Demand.

Actually you have no need for cardio equipment you can get all the cardio you need with a properly structured strength workout programme. Cardio is a one trick pony strength training can actually meet all your fitness needs other than for endurance type activities. Do not depend on cardio for fat loss or fitness,

With a little research you can find a strength programme which requires little or no equipment or money expenditure.

It is called WORK-ing out for a reason.

I said getting fit was simple, I did not say it was easy.

Cardio burns calories, strength work burns fat.

Eat well to lose weight, exercise to get fit

You can not build a six pack using twelve packs


Often when we seek a magic bullet for fitness we end up shooting ourselves in the foot.

I have a great YMCA membership that offers financial assistance and is only 10 minutes from where I live and has a pool. I'm hoping someone at the Y or someone else can show me how to ride a bike so I can do it for fitness. The only other thing I could think of was using a hotel's pool, or seeing if a school lets people use the pool or facilities.

Running up and down stairs in house, and websites to find free or cheap cardio equipment like spinning bikes or other machines. Other places to get a pool membership besides a YMCA or gym?
