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.
