4.49 I Can’t Afford to go to the Gym

This is a real situation of course, but there is some good news. You don’t need a gym to exercise and get healthy. Just walk outside, use something simple to lift weights like a gallon of water, or go up and down the stairs again and again. There are plenty of ways to exercise and get healthy without spending a dime.

Also, many insurance companies will give you a gym membership free! Ask and you may be surprised. You could also try calling your local hospital. They frequently let anyone join their gym that they use for their cardiac rehab patients for quite a low cost. If you have heart disease, see if your condition qualifies for cardiac rehab. Your doctor can write you a prescription and you will get to go free!
