Many places of employment have healthy lifestyle incentive programs in place, and these tend to go unused.
On top of our regular benefits, my employer will reimburse up to half of the money spent on fitness-related purchases. That's a hefty chunk of change when you're looking at a gym membership or equipment, and a lot of employees don't even know that this perk exists.

If you live in a apartment complex or condo and they offer any fitness equipment, use it. Do not spend the extra money to join a fitness center just to have the ability to use the sauna or pool. They usually have Nautilus equipment , treadmills, and elliptical machines available 24 hours a day and it is a perk that was offered with the rent.
If you want to go swim or use the sauna at a community center it is cheaper than paying for a whole year of dues to a fitness center.
