Payday loans: Ways to save money while getting fit
The hardest part probably of getting back in shape is the budget. It may be hard to admit but staying fit is not an easy feat if you are broke as hell. But there are ways in which you can maintain a great figure but still maintain a decent back account for payday loan. Staying fit does not mean going broke. Here are some advice on how you can maintain a balanced bank account and a healthy body.
Download an app
Apps are a gift for the world. There are apps that can help you track your every day fitness. With the world going frankly a bit wellness manic these days, there are a whole slog of fitness apps popping up all over the place that will help you track your progress and work towards different goals. Apps like Sworkit and 7 Minute Workout are great for squeezing in a quick session at home, and you don’t need anything but floorspace to tone up with their personalized routines. Instagram is also full of its own fitness celebs with God-like status – check out Kayla Itsines and Joe Wickes if you haven’t already.
Look beyond the gym
Before splurging at a high-end gym, consider your local recreation centre or YMCA. Centres frequently have a pool; running track; various yoga, dance and aerobics classes; and recreational sports such as badminton or basketball that you can access on a drop-in basis. That means you can kiss gym boredom goodbye.
Cut junk food
Junk foods are expensive. They are also very bad for your health. Therefore cutting them out is an easy reason. A cupboard full of crisps and a Dominos delivered to your door might sound like the best option when you flop on the sofa after a hard day, but it won’t be doing your waistline – or your wallet – any good. Cut the takeaways, fatty foods and snacks and you’ll not only see the difference, you’ll feel it too.

Team up with a friend
Everyone needs an extra push now and then to strap those sneakers on. Most turn to a personal trainer for inspiration and a reason to hit the gym. However, if you don’t have hundreds of dollars, just ask a friend. If you know someone else is waiting on you to hit up a fitness class or a jog around the neighborhood, you are more likely to feel inspired.
Find motivation online
In today’s world of Facebook and Twitter, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t use it to your advantage in the world of fitness. There are various networks, including my favorites Map My Run and Map My Ride. These programs allow you to track your workouts and even rate how each workout went, so you can view your progress each week. They also allow you to set a fitness goal and connect with your friends to give each other motivation.
Water is probably the cheapest fitness secret ever. You might be totally on top of this healthy eating business, but have you stopped to think about what else you’re chucking down your throat? Fizzy drinks, like Coke, Sprite or Fanta, along with highly sweetened or flavoured fruit juices are only good for two things – rotting your teeth and piling on the pounds. They’re also blinking expensive. Switch to plain old water and you’ll find it’s cheaper (even free!), much more refreshing and much better for you. Experts recommend that we drink 8 to 10 glasses (equal to around 2 litres) every day!
