Getting Started On Your Fitness Routine

As for clothing, a sweat suit or comfortable walking clothes and shoes are all you need to get started. Notice that so far, you’ve got zero dollars invested in your fitness routine.

Now, on to the Toledo fitness repair in the case you’re treadmill, elliptical or bike needs fixing. If you’re handy with a sewing machine, you can make ankle weights, wrist weights and leg weights in no time. You’ll need a couple of old pillowcases, an old towel or just any inexpensive fabric, cut into strips about 4 inches wide and long enough to fit around your ankles, wrists or mid-thighs. Sew into rectangles,
leaving one end open. Fill the rectangles with rice, sand or dried beans. Sew the rectangles shut and attach pieces of Velcro to the ends. Voila! Cheap fitness equipment doesn’t get much better than that. Weights of this type generally weigh about one pound each, offering just the right amount of extra resistance to strengthen tone and shape your muscles and joints.

Alternatively, you can save yourself the trouble of making this type of cheap fitness equipment by buying them ready-made, available at many sports shops as well as at online shops. When you’re ready for your daily walk, just snap on your weights and you’re good to go. If you’re diligent in your daily walking routine, you’ll notice a big difference in how you feel after just one week. You’ll also see a difference in the tone of your muscles. You may even drop a pound or two!

Our last suggestion for your cheap fitness equipment collection? A set of dumb bell weights. You can easily get great definition going on your arms and abs by spending 10-15 minutes a day with a set of 2-5 pound dumb bell weights.

Now you know how to, well, have your cake and eat it too – cheap fitness equipment and an easy, enjoyable fitness routine that has you looking and feeling good! Enjoy!
