Fitness on your terms
Don’t let money, time or mixed messages stop you from getting in the shape of your life
Fitness should be accessible for anyone, whether you’re watching the pennies, live a really hectic lifestyle or have never done so much as a press-up in your life. But a new survey has revealed that perhaps, as a nation, we are better at exercise when it comes to the theory rather than the practice.
Having a gym membership, buying the latest trendy leggings and owning our own set of dumbbells might make it look like we’re fitness fanatics, but how many of us actually get stuck in? The jury’s out, according to a survey taken by sports ticket broker, ticketgum.com. Out of 1,200 people surveyed, they found that, on average, we spend £340 a year on fitness – covering equipment, apps, fitnesswear, machines and more – and this doesn’t even include the amount we spend on gym memberships.
It goes without saying that feeling strong, healthy and confident is priceless, but for those of us who splash out with the best intentions only to regret it much later (with a much smaller bank balance!), there must be a better way, right?
Whether you could do without breaking the bank or the choice of gym equipment on offer simply sends you into a spiral of confusion, this workout could be the solution. Not only is it completely equipmentfree, calling only on your own bodyweight to provide the challenge, it can also be done at home, for free, whenever suits you.
Give it a go – on your terms.
