1st Economical Way for Women to get Fit –Run Outside
Become an early bird, ladies! Wake up early in the morning and go for a morning run outside in the park or just around your block. In this way you will be able to get in shape while connecting with the fresh, awe-inspiring morning nature surrounding you. You can also run for charity races or marathons as much as you can. This will keep you physically as well as mentally fit as you will raise money for a good cause while keeping yourself fit. Many people in Singapore are looking forward to the upcoming new Standard Chartered Marathon which will be held on the fifth and sixth December later this year.
It is quite normal if you cannot run for a long duration over a long distance at once since you have suddenly decided to take up running as your daily form of exercise. My personal suggestion for you is to follow NHS’ couch to 5k programme which is available as a series of free podcasts on the iTunes. This series of podcasts are very effectual in building up strength and resilience gradually in your muscles so that you may be able to run quickly over a large distance for a significant amount of time. The best aspect of this is that the series is mainly targeted towards people aged around the 50s range. This means that this program is very mild and steady suitable for your untrained body.
Got some sort of muscular problem because of which your doctor advised you not to run? In that case, I would recommend you to take up morning walks as an alternative to morning runs. All you have to do is just walk for half an hour everyday. Just half an hour of walking daily will help you maintain an ideal BMI, lower the chances of you developing any cardiovascular disease and relieve you from anxiety.
If you decide to follow the first economical way, you would need to spend a mere cost on just good sports shoes.

3rd Economical Way for Women to get Fit –Work Out at Home
Working out at home can be easy for any woman like you whether you are swamped with chores, kids, assignments, managing the entire family or all of the above. All you need to do is have a game plan.
First of all, decide a suitable range of time for half an hour to one hour, three to five days per week when you will always remain free to conduct your workout sessions. Next, select the workouts that you can do at home. Try to select a variety of workouts for each day to keep yourself motivated and interested. My ideas are calisthenics, skipping (skipping ropes are very cheap) and exercise balls. Calisthenics are my favourite. Although the word ‘calisthenics’ makes this exercise sound difficult, it is actually just squats, push-ups, jumping jacks, star jumps, crunches (chair crunches or chair dips), lunges, leg-lifts and so forth.
Want to have a more gym-like feel at home? You can alternate the gym equipment with household commodities. Use the countertop of your kitchen bench for your push-ups as an alternate to the push-up bars of the gym. Use pantyhose or leggings as resistance bands. To replace the gymnasium’s sets of dumbbells, use soup cans and large measuring jugs (filling water within different levels).
4th Economical Way for Women to get Fit –Take up Cycling
In my opinion, cycling is one of the most economic, time efficient and useful method for you to keep fit while making use of it as a transport. I think you must travel by using a bicycle for travelling over short distances like to the stores, your kids’ school or even when your workplace is not too far from your home. Along with physical fitness, this will prevent you from wasting money on the petrol or gas consumed by your car and you will no longer have to schedule a certain time out for your physical fitness.
5th Economical Way for Women to get Fit –Your Phones can be Handy
I bet you always thought that smartphones are one of the reasons for your laziness which has caused you to attempt becoming physically fit again. Well, think again because you can actually get fit with the help from your smartphones for no or minute charges. There is a large variety of applications which contain fitness training programs, calorie dependent diet programs, running simulators and much more. To exemplify, ‘Zombies Run!’, ‘MyFitnessPal’ and ‘Fitocracy’.
6th Economical Way for Women to get Fit –TV, DVD or the Internet
Watching television and movies on the DVD or surfing the net may be the cause for your unfit physique but you can counterattack this with some cleverness. Use televisions to your advantage. Use willpower to set different exercises in between television commercials. There are also exercise programs you can watch on TV, DVDs and YouTube. However, make sure that these programs are of high quality by strictly professional individuals or else, they might do you more harm than good.
