Your Workouts Matter

If you are looking to live more frugally these days, your gym membership may one of the first things to go. While cutting back expenses is a good thing, cutting back on your exercise is not. Regular exercise is key to staying healthy. People who engage in regular exercise not only feel better, but they live longer, too. Plus, it helps you fend off diabetes, some cancers, and heart problems, which can go a long way toward cutting back on health care expenses. Fortunately, you have many options to keep you moving while keeping the pennies in your wallet.
