Get Fit Without Breaking Your Bank

 fitness-habits-02-2
Getting in shape is hard for some people and it can also be expensive! Here are some practical ways to get fit without breaking the bank!

Head Outside

  • When the weather is nice, head out your front door and run or walk around the neighborhood, hop on your bike or head to the high school track. You can even get creative and use park equipment for pull-ups and tricep dips.

Use your phone

  • There are several free apps you can download to your phone for FREE and you will be able to choose from a variety of workout options. Nike + Training Club is free and you can even track your workouts and progress.

Look for Promotional Offers Online

  • Head to over to Groupon or Living Social and you can find deals on classes for your city. You can find super nice prices on boot camp classes, barre, cycle and more! This is a great way to try out a gym for a discounted price to make sure it is something you even like.

Utilize Free Online Workout Sites

  • Did you know there are several awesome online workout sites you can use from home or the office? Try going on your firestick for free workout videos or Youtube for challenging and FREE workouts! There are workouts for every level and can be done with or without equipmentpexels-photo-132589

Find a Basic Gym

  • You really only need some cardio equipment and some weights to get in shape so skip the pricey big boutique gyms and look for cheaper options. Gyms like Planet Fitness or Fitness 19 if it's available around your area. They both offer memberships for just $10 a month! Search around in your area and you are sure to find something affordable!

What about the clothes?

  • When we are wanting to get in shape we often feel more motivated if we have some workout clothes that make us feel good. These items can be pricey but there are always ways to get deals and get a few things for cheap! Target has a cute line that is almost always on sale! You can get shirts on sale for around $5 and cheaper if you watch for clearance! Also, checkout Walmart and Amazon for items for every budget.

BeLive Probiotic Review

As an athlete I need my daily vitamins everyday. It's very important for me to make sure of that before I start my day. Not only am I an athlete, but also a competitor with a strict diet. I have no time to get sick from any stomach bugs or any digestive dysfunction. Competing has restricted me from any dairy intake so it's been a bit hard trying to find supplements that are dairy free. When I started reading on BeLive and noticed it was dairy free I was pretty excited because I knew it wouldn't affect me. On top of being dairy free it is also suitable for vegetarians, egg free, gluten free, nut free, soy free and no artificial colors or preservatives. Now where and how is this even possible. It's like a dream come true in a small bottle. My first impression on the gummies was "yummy." They taste just like gummies, but better. And although I must admit I almost wanted to eat the entire thing. It helped me keep my digestive on check especially with bloating. It was something I always looked forward to taking when I started incorporating the gummies into my daily vitamin intake.

BeLive Probiotic is an essential daily dietary supplement that promotes long-term and short-term benefits. It helps protect against toxins and stomach viruses, assists with the absorption of essential minerals and vitamins, and promotes healthier immune and digestive function. BeLive Probiotic has 2.5 billion CFU of probiotics per gummy, which is about three times more concentrated than many other probiotic brands. Their formula is designed to give you the ideal level of probiotics to help you maintain better overall health.

You can now purchase BeLive Probiotic gummies on Amazon HERE or you can head over to their website HERE and save 15%.

My name is Valerie, 27 years old, law enforcement officer and I love to do a whole lot of things in life. I don't or should I say rarely watch televison, I love to read books, DIYs are so much fun, I am an NPC bikini competitor with Team Flawless (Flordia based) love love LOVE to bake, cooking is fun too, love to save money I mean the list goes on. I keep myself busy 90% of the time and you'll never see me show up late to any type of appointment. On this blog you'll see a lot of what I do. I enjoy helping people so I'll also post up different foods to help those who need help losing weight achieve their goal(s). I love reviewing things and you'll see that alot on here as well.
