  • On YouTube there are clips of PRIMAL WORK OUTS, that are so interesting, because these people use ONLY natural objects to exercise, like lifting a sand bag, swinging a rope, etc. It is educational to see. - 8/15/2008 9:32:34 AM
    I dropped my gym membership and personal trainer ($150-$200 total per month) for a Netflix membership ($15 a month). They have EVERYTHING. I record my favorites onto VHS tapes. I have a nice library of yoga and workout videos. I also pick up workout videos at thrift stores. I save additional time and gas money by not driving to the gym. - 8/14/2008 2:04:40 PM

    My college allows students and faculty to use the gym absolutely free. Its great. State of the art equipment with TV and cable channels for free. Its the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - 8/14/2008 9:32:40 AM
  • I don't have dumbbells, so I've been using two cans of tomato sauce for my weights. Tomato sauce works best because it's all the same consistency instead of beans or olives sloshing around in water. I second Comcast on Demand for fitness videos too! - 8/13/2008 8:13:04 PM
  • i have found that there are many ways to exercise without spending money. I love to walk and now I have even moved up to a little jogging too. On the internet you can get different exercises demos and do them on the floor watching TV for free!!!! Fitness Magazine has several free video. - 8/13/2008 12:57:19 PM
  • I have digital cable and they have an on-demand channel called Exercise TV On Demand, where you can choose from about 100 workouts for free. Of course, digital cable isn't cheap by itself, but if you already have it, you might have access to this. - 8/13/2008 9:22:19 AM
  • kids are a good source of excercise for free too. there are soo many things you can do, such as tag, hopscotch, hide and seek, pig in the middle, annie annie over, pretty much any game you can think of where you actually move around. with little to no equipment needed it sure does work. - 8/12/2008 9:11:25 PM
  • Great ideas, Thank you. - 8/12/2008 9:05:30 PM
  • If you have TiVo/DVR and Cable/Satellite, record your favorite shows on FitTV, PBS, or similar. - 8/12/2008 8:59:42 PM

    Great suggestions. Lots of variety on the cheap. For me the key to sticking with it will be variety and you certainly have given lots of that. Thanks! - 8/12/2008 8:53:15 PM
    I love the walking viedos they really make you break a sweat.. - 8/12/2008 8:46:48 PM
  • A lot of great suggestions! Thanks for the article. - 8/12/2008 7:51:29 PM
  • Another cheap way to get fit is trade/borrow fitness DVD's with friends. Or, most gyms offer free guest passes if you want to try before you buy, or as a great way to workout free when it is too hot, cold, wet, etc. outside. - 8/12/2008 7:46:16 PM
    I have had a netflix membership for a few years now and just recently discovered their library of workout videos. The best part is that some are offered as "watch it now" movies, that you can watch immediately on your computer! It's great for me because I can workout whenever the mood strikes, and it's not boring. It's also a great way to introduce yourself to new instructors - Jillian Michaels (a trainer from The Biggest Loser) is my new favorite! - 8/12/2008 4:45:40 PM
