Fitness on a Budget

You don’t need to spend thousands of dollars on the latest gadgets to be fit and healthy. There is a cost effective way to exercise. Here are a few items that may be used in your home or when you travel, and won’t put you in debt.

Gymboss Interval Timer. The Gymboss interval timer gives your workout the discipline and structure necessary to take your workout to the next level. The easy to use timer allows you to stay on track during your interval or tabata workouts by eliminating the pesky issue of checking the time during your intervals. Just set it, forget it and put all of your focus on your workout!

Resistance Exercise Bands. Resistance Bands are the best way to workout in a cost and space effective way! Unlike free weights, resistance bands are lightweight and travel well. With dumbbells, each time you want to add or decrease weight, you have to go grab another set of weights. But with resistance bands, all you have to do is tighten or loosen your grip. It’s like having multiple sets of weights in one piece of equipment.

Suspension Trainer. A must-have for the in-home exerciser is the TRX. The TRX suspension training system is great for the traveling exerciser , an outdoor enthusiast or the average exerciser who doesn’t have much space to work out. The TRX is a little more spendy, but it is your perfect all-in-one piece of equipment. Hook the TRX up to a tree, pole or sturdy beam in your house and you’re set for a great workout using just your body weight. Cardio, resistance, stretching – the TRX can do it all.

With a little creativity and prioritizing of equipment, working out outside of the gym doesn’t have to break the bank!
