Cut Gym Costs…A Guide to Working Out at Home

While working out is great for your body, it can be a time consuming hobby. If you’re like most people, you have to go to the gym before or after work. That means waking up early or staying out late. By the time you change, drive there, workout and drive home, an entire evening has passed you by.

Not only is the gym time consuming, it’s also expensive! According to USA Today, the average gym membership costs approximately $60 per month – that’s $720 every year! Most gyms offer a signing bonus or student discount, but essentially, joining a gym costs a pretty penny.

If you’re looking to save time and money, consider working out with a downloaded app at home. Here’s how:


Sworkit has various workout options, including abs and core, yoga and stretching, legs, glutes and cardio. Each program is customizable and at the end of the workout, users can see a report that includes how long they exercised and how many calories they burned. The app will even send you reminders so you don’t skip out on a session!
