Health and money are two things that people worry about the most. Those who have more money often can spend more on their health and fitness than those who need to live on strict budgets, but starting the road to getting health and losing weight can also be a journey to save money as well. Here are a few ways to get healthy and save money:
Lose the Sugary Drinks
Sugary drinks such as fruit drinks, Gatorade, Powerade, etc… are often pricey and not necessary for most people. Unless you have a physically demanding job that requires you to replenish sugars and electrolytes, stop buying these sugar-filled drinks. Instead, drink 1/2 your bodyweight in ounces of water. For example, if you weigh 200 pounds, it would be best to drink 100 ounces of water per day.
Eat at home
Most people know that they should not eat out frequently and eat at home. While most people understand this, the impact of actually doing this is much greater than most people think, for health reasons and financial reasons. While meal prep can take time, it is a worthy investment of your time to improve your healthy and your bank account.
Go on brisk walks
When most people think of a walk, they think of a nice stroll through the park to enjoy nature. This is not that type of walk. When doing a brisk walk, your strides should be long, arms moving as if you are running and taking as few breaks as possible. You should be able to work up quite a sweat if you do it correctly.
While these tips are not fancy, they are 3 of the most effective things you can do to get healthy and save money at the same time. As always, if you have any questions or would like to see what it would take to get you on a personalized fitness program, just Contact Us!
