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.

government run public facilities are actually by far the cheapest where I live.

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?
