    Adopt a dog from a rehoming centre and walk it 1 mile in the morning and another in the evening. I have never been so fit!

    Failing that, get a copy of Coleen Nolan's Disco Burn DVD and dance yourself fit. :j
  • I've recently started the hundred pressup challenge go to hundredpressups dot com, in 2 weeks i've noticed more results than training 4 times a week at the gym.

    Fantanstic excersice, takes 5 mins a day and great to get a few mates doing it too.

    Have fun

    Try Body Combat at home on the below. It's aerobics with punching and kicking and very very fun. You need a good bit of space around you. You might want to watch it through for the technique, but really worth the effort.

    Go to tudou website and search for body combat 44, the video is in english.

    Hi,

    I have discovered the best free way to lose weight with one very simple exercise that anyone can do at home. It's called 'Put Down the Spoon'!:D

    I always ask for fitness stuff (both equipment & clothing) for birthdays & Christmas. I have probably only spent about £150-£200 in 15 YEARS on fitness stuff. I exercise at home & have a Reebok step, hand weights & kettlebells. I bought a second hand bike for £25.00 & pick up exercise DVD's in sales, charity shops & on ebay. I bought some good quality running trainers in a Sports Direct sale. I have a good selection of Cardio, Strength & stretching & toning DVDs for all round fitness. If i get bored of step I pick & different cardio workout. I hate driving so tend to walk or bike everywhere.

    Make good use of the Nintendo Wii It's not just for kids use the sports section for a good work out, it's also lots of fun too.
    i second that - there's so much fun to be had, i forget i'm exercising! i've been exercising solidly for seven months now. it also relives stress and cheers one up 'cos it's funny & cute!
    ps: get a 2ndhand one from ebay or amazon marketplace if you feel the cost new is a bit high
    Boyfriend & I have saved £12K in two years, thanks to careful budgeting and keeping a record of what we spend. I've never paid myself this amount of money before - it feels great!
  • Darcy Bussel's DVD on Palates is pretty good and much cheaper than classes. It's helped my back and knee problems.

    if you have a young child invest in a good sling (e.g. wrap or mei-tai - both spread weight evenly over your whole back & both shoulders) and get carrying instead of using buggy - you use as many calories as if you weighed more, so if you do a lot of walking around it can really add up. Plus it also helps reduce crying in babies :)

    Just be careful when sitting down on the bus....
