    Nice Article. To get fit there is not much need to join the gym. We can do it in an inexpensive way. There is no need to spend a lot of money.

    Good article I like going to the gym but stats show that only 12% of the population go to the gym 3 or more times a week. Cost and time is the two main reasons given so your article shows you can get fitter with little cost and work it into your daily lifestyle

    Hi Evelyn
    I totally agree, you really don’t need to spend any money on getting fit. I have done the gym thing and spent many hundreds of dollars on wasted memberships! In the “olden” days you used to be able to just join the aerobics which I loved but now you have to have a full membership and pay top dollar or pay top dollar to go to individual aerobic sessions. I did go to a group PT session for quite a long time and that was fun and worth it but when my partner was made redundant I couldn’t afford it anymore.

    Now I walk during my lunch hour with friends from work and also in the evening with my partner. I also do a few extra exercises from the Body and Soul site, they have a huge collection of exercise plans for aerobics, and exercises for toning tummies, arms, butt etc.

    I have to say I do like DVDs as well and have a very small collection because they are great to do when it is too wet to walk or you want to do something a bit different.

    you were right evelyn. We don’t even need to spend a a money to get fit actually.. There is many ways to go for it.. All you need to do is have the strong motivation on yourself.

  5. Great article Evelyn,
    I think that anyone can get fit if they want to. My favourite ways are walking and jogging. It’s so easy to just spend an hour or half an hour a day walking around!
