The best part about physical activity? You can do it anywhere! Most of the time, it doesn’t cost a dime either. With a little motivation and imagination, you can discover lots of ways to get moving throughout your day.
Do some chair dips while watching TV. If it’s a short distance, ride your bike instead of driving. Don’t worry about buying expensive workout clothes or gear either. Make physical activity the priority — not how you look while doing it.
For more money-saving ways you can move more, use the tips and ideas below.
