If your two goals are to get in shape and stick to your budget, you might be faced with a conundrum. This summer, we’ve teamed up with fitness experts to show that you can achieve BOTH of these goals. If you haven’t already, sign up here to get a new, budget-friendly workout every Thursday!
Sara Waldman brings us an effective workout that can be done from the privacy of your own home AND doesn’t require any fancy gear. No time? No equipment? It turns out you also have no excuses.
One of my favorite things about fitness is that you can find a way to get a workout in anywhere and at any budget level. No fancy gym or equipment needed! It’s just a matter of knowing what to do.
Here’s an equipment-free glute and ab workout I created for @fiscalfemme’s new Fabulously Frugal Fitness series. If you don’t have a yoga mat, you can use a towel to create padding for your lower back.
The key to feeling the is to take each move nice and slow. Really focus on engaging your muscles. Form over speed!
Hope this helps you find a way to “feel the burn” the next time you need an equipment-free workout!
