Free Fitness Options
Some Activewear Stores
Some activewear companies in your town may offer a range of free classes, and others for a low price. Lorna Jane, Athleta, and REI are just a few to name around my area in Portland. Some are nationwide so be sure to check online or call to see what they have to offer. If in the city, be sure to keep your eye out for pop-up events outside as well.
Nike Training Club App
Nike has an app for both Andriod & Apple on your phone. This app offers over 160 free workouts and personalized training plans, helping you stay on track with your goals.
Endless possibilities. Some really enjoy snow sports during the winter. In the summertime especially, all other options are possible. Such as hiking, running, biking, tennis, frisbee, swimming, water-sports, etc. If it's nice out, why not take a walk to the store instead of drive, if you have the time? Or take your indoor yoga or pilates outside on the grass instead. Train outside. Swim in your community pool. Throw balls for your dog at the park. Get creative!
On that note, there are plenty of free apps you can download on your phone if you want to track your runs, walks or hikes. AllTrails is one of my favorites, highly recommended for hikers!
Today's world of YouTube is endless in almost every subject. Fitness makes up a large portion. Several different trainers to choose from as well as subjects, such as all kinds of dance, pilates, yoga, HIIT, and so much more. My favorites include PopSugar, Blogilates, and The Fitness Marshall.
Free Intro Classes or Trials
Whether you enjoy a regular gym with equipment options, or fitness clubs such as indoor cycling, crossfit, yoga classes, etc. - you are bound to find one that offers your first class free. Some gyms even offer a first full week or month free. While researching may be tedious, finding the results and taking advantage of new experiences is well worth it.
