Losing Weight Doesn’t Have to Squeeze Your Pocket Book

Work Out on the Cheap

1. Walk or bike instead of driving.

If you’re accustomed to driving everywhere, walking or biking instead can be rewarding and calorie-torching. Every mile you walk is worth 100 to 200 calories, depending on your weight, and every mile biked is worth 50 to 120, so why not save some gas and sweat a little?

2. Reduce facility fees

Gym memberships can cost upwards of $100 per month, but there are several cheaper options for most people. A local recreation center can cost as little as $1.50 to $3 per session, and no-frills gyms such as Planet Fitness cost just $10 a month (with sign-up fee). If you prefer a traditional gym, your health insurance plan may come with monthly fee discounts on local or national chains— details should be available on your insurer’s website. If you’re considering a new gym, take advantage of promotions such as reduced sign-up fees and free passes so you can try before you commit.
