Need Exercise Equipment? Set Aside A Little Money & Watch For Sales
Members Were Sparked
I do not have room for a treadmill or stationary bike, so I set aside a little money every week until I had enough money get good running shoes, free weights, resistance bands, medicine ball, pedometer, & stability ball. I did not get them in one shopping trip, but set aside money once a week, set a goal TO BE MET by the end of the month, COMPLETED the goal, looked for sales, and then bought the exercise equipment. I not only saved money, but I made sure NO EXCUSES when it comes to exercising!

I follow the money saving rules for exercise. Serious savers set a (realistic) goal, and set this aside first, before paying any other bills. I have to do the same when setting aside time for exercise or my busy life will mean that I have no time left.9
HOCKEY - Learn to Play as an Adult and Burn TONS of Calories!!!!
Have fun and burn amazing amounts of calories by learning a new sport - Hockey! I usually burn between 700-1100 calories during a 60-75 minute session. I don't even realize it because I'm having so much fun! Check your local ice rink for an adult learn-to-play session.
Some rinks/organizations will loan you the equipment you need or check with a used sports equipment store to save money on the equipment.
