Getting in Shape for Less

Every one should be in shape. It’s good for your body and health. One cheap and effective way to get in shape is by doing house chores or repairs. The advantage of this is that you are killing two birds with one stone. You are cleaning or repairing the house and also getting in shape. This is one of the best ways to get in shape if you are too busy. Another good way, if you have time, is athletic activities. Whether it is swimming, running, walking, biking, or playing baseball, basketball, football and so on, all these are good. Some of these tend to be more expensive than others. For example walking has little or no expense involved, while biking costs much more. Sports can also have a big price tag.

What about gym memberships as a way of getting in shape? I believe that gym memberships are too expensive. You have enrollment fees, bi-weekly costs, and additional costs. Additional cost can include cost of training lessons and equipment. One other harmful thing about gyms is that at gyms some people tend to over excercise. This can lead to heart, muscle and body damage. This is very unhealthy . These results are the opposite of why most people decide to get in shape.

This leads me to the risk of costly injuries. Heart, spine and bone surgeries tend to be extremely costly. No one wants to pay these hefty prices. If you are getting really tired or if a part of your body starts hurting STOP! You can reduce the risk of injuries by taking it easy. It is better to be safe than sorry. Do not overexert your body! Slow and steady is better. Doing it faster will put you in a hospital. Use common sense when exercising. Remember to be consistent in your exercises and activities for this is the only way you are going to gett shape.
