Exercise classes can get expensive – especially at upscale fitness studios where they charge per class. Even at 10 bucks per class a few times per week, the costs build up pretty quickly. I have found that exercise classes are the best way for me to get fit. I don’t push myself when I’m at the gym – I’m pretty much bored and wanting to go home the entire time. I like instructors that tell me which exercises to do, how many reps, and how to correct my form so I make the time I spend in class worth it.
There are some great resources out there that make talking classes incredibly inexpensive – even free! Check it:
City Sponsored Classes
Most major cities have classes around the city that are paid for by our tax dollars. So we may as well use them! The cons: the location may not be ideal. I’ve seen free classes in both New York and LA .
Business Sponsored Classes Lululemon offers free weekly yoga (and other) classes at many of their locations. Simply look for your store and then click the “community events” link. A schedule will pop up with free classes!
YMCA Your local Y can have a great selection of classes and membership is usually much cheaper than the gym!
Yipit Yipit is a groupon type site aggregator where they organize all coupon site deals in one place. You can search by city and category and then see all of the deals in one place! I have friends that exercise exlusively with coupons from the various coupon classes. Classes can be as little as a few bucks per class.
