Gym membership alternatives


Did you know...

If you're not ready to splurge on a gym membership, January can be the best time to snag some low-cost alternatives!

For fitness vouchers up to 85% off, check out sites like Groupon and LivingSocial. With options from yoga to kickboxing, and everything in-between, you can have a variety of classes to choose from in your area. While many of these discounts apply only to new clients, you'll be able to try out different studios before you commit to anything long-term.

And if you typically exercise at home or outside but still want the occasional gym workout, consider day passes. Sure, these passes cost more per visit but if you're only going a handful of times a month, you'll actually be saving. Some gyms even offer deals on per-visit packages, so ask about any specials before you buy!

Now you're ready to get fit for the new year! Try out these tips and you can still break a sweat...without breaking the bank.
