How to workout more intensely & more cheaply in 2023?

In actuality, many of us just spend all that money on fitness equipment that ends up sitting around collecting dust, similar to an unused gym membership. We really don't need to spend a tonne of money to stay active and get fit, unless we're professional athletes training for a competition or climbing a notoriously treacherous peak that has killed hundreds of people. Many of us do not even need that pricey gym membership to reach our fitness goals, as the COVID pandemic has demonstrated.

How to Make workout affordable & Intense?

Fitness resolution 1: Cease purchasing new fitness equipment to serve as motivation

Don't get me wrong; using fitness tools and equipment is absolutely necessary for some exercise regimens and goal-achieving activities. However, you're already going about your fitness resolution the wrong way if you spend a lot of money on an expensive smart studio mirror or a top-notch smartwatch.

However, a study in the International Journal of Public Health found that after just 17.8 days, most people give up on their New Year's resolutions (opens in new tab). And if you don't start your fitness journey with the right mindset and the appropriate workouts for you, that brand-new toy will eventually lose its shine. For instance, I once owned an exercise bike that fit under my desk but I hardly ever used it and eventually gave it to a neighbor. I bought it because I sat at my desk for long periods of time working, and it seemed like a promising way to stay active while still using a keyboard. However, I was never able to make it work. If anything, it only served to divert me, which caused me to work more slowly and ultimately waste time.

Resolution 2 for fitness: Utilize public facilities

I love being outside, so climbing the stairs in my neighbourhood and hiking the trails around Los Angeles were perfect for me. In addition, I exercised at home while watching free YouTube workout videos and using my $12.99 USD Find What Feels Good(opens in new tab) membership (some Yoga by Adrienne videos, by the way, are also free on YouTube). I already had my Apple Watch Series 6, a pair of $30 JLab Go Air Sport workout headphones that I found to be much more dependable and comfortable to wear than the pricey Beats Fit Pro, and my $10.99/month Apple Music subscription, which was all I needed to complete my workout schedule.

I'm not saying you shouldn't buy good equipment; on the other hand, you don't have to pay $1,400 plus $12.99 a month for a Peloton Bike programme to get in shape. In addition to using the stairs and trails this year, I'm also going to visit public pools, which should only cost $5 to $10 per visit, to improve my swimming (I love swimming and being in the water, but I'm not a strong swimmer). It's important to note that while some gym memberships are pricey, others will only run you about $10 per month (on top of an annual membership fee that most gyms also have). However, there are also public exercise parks and outdoor gym stations that are free for everyone to use if you decide to skip the gym this year like I am, whether it's due to that toxic gym culture or the fact that everything nearby is just too damn expensive right now. Simply conduct some research.

Third resolution for fitness: Improve diet

Even if you work out for two hours a day, if you're eating poorly, it won't matter how hard you work. Especially if you're trying to lose weight, what you put into your body matters as well. Getting takeout or eating fast food every day will still harm you. You should spend more time this year preparing meals at home that are healthier and use more vegetables than meat. By doing this, you'll save a tonne of money because vegetables are less expensive than meats, you won't have to pay $15 to $25 per meal in addition to delivery fees and tips, and you'll be able to have a diet that is more balanced and nutritious. That should not only assist you in achieving your fitness objectives but also significantly lower your weekly food budget, enabling you to make further financial savings.
