10 Cheap Ways to Stay Fit ...


Don’t you get fed up when every January we are bombarded with adverts telling us that the holidays were really bad for us and we should spend the rest of the year working off the excesses? If it’s not probiotic yoghurts or new celebrity work out DVDs, it’s scary news stories of heart disease killing more women than men or that the experts got it wrong and cranberry sauce actually causes nose polyps rather than being good for you or programs like the Biggest Loser USA.

If it makes you feel guilty enough to consider joining an expensive gym – don’t. You’ll pay a large annual membership fee, go 3 or 4 times then your gym kit will be slung in a corner of the cloakroom to fester until next January. If you want to feel fitter and better about yourself you can make a big difference in just a few ways and all for a fraction of the price of a gym session or even no cost at all.
