The Money Mom: Fitness Freebies

Dumbell WeightsAbout four mornings a week, I lace up my running shoes and hit the pavement – either by myself, or with a girlfriend.  It’s a time for me to relax and de-stress in the middle of a busy week.  Plus, it’s free, and requires very little equipment.

But right about this time of winter, I start to lose my motivation.  It’s cold.  It’s dark.  And, at least in my neck of the woods, it has snowed entirely too much this winter.  That’s why this article in the March issue of ShopSmart, a magazine put out by the folks at Consumer Reports, caught my eye.

It’s about fitness freebies, free or very cheap tools to help you recover your motivation to sweat.  The best part?  Most don’t require you to leave the comfort of your warm, cozy living room, and many are customizable to your time frame – important for busy moms like us.  I talked to the editor of the piece, Jody Rohlena, about her favorites of the lot, then added one or two of my own tips.
