Frugal Equipment Doesn't Mean Bad Workouts

In many areas of life, we fall into the trap of thinking that the more something costs, the better it is. We make the mistake with food, art, and even clothes. And sure, in some areas, price does reflect quality or security. A pricey dress, for example, is probably made better than a cheap one. But, in some things, the price=quality theory doesn’t apply. 

Lucky for you, one such area is fitness. When you get into the exercise equipment black hole, it’s easy to find the expensive stuff. It all looks so good, with its five speeds, and different settings. But, it has a price tag to match your latest car, and you have no chance of affording that. As such, you put your dreams to the side and your exercise with it. After all, the cheap equipment won’t offer the same workout quality, right? Wrong. In fact, there are plenty of affordable options which will keep you as fit in the long run. For proof, we’re going to look at a few of them here. 

Dressing Down 

If you’re serious about this workout thing, you probably want to get the gear. Tight, airy clothes are essential for workout comfort. And, workout comfort is vital for continued practice. So, instead of exercising in what you have, it’s worth buying some stuff for the purpose.

Of course, investing in the latest Adidas workout top probably isn’t the most frugal. But, there are plenty of cheaper options, and many of them are just as good. Buying in the sale of a well-known brand is a fantastic way to save money. Sometimes, even that isn’t necessary. As you can see from this list of the best workout shoes for men, options like the Tesla Trail Running shoe are cheap, and still make the top list. Similar reviews can be found for trousers, tops, and even sports bras. You may be surprised by the high ratings cheaper gear gets! 

The Equipment Itself 

Let’s not beat around the bush; the equipment itself is one of the priciest things. If you want to start a home gym, it can seem like spending money is the only way. But, that’s not the case. Undeniably, even basic running machines can set you back. But, who said you need one? Instead, stick to simple equipment, like jump ropes and kettlebells. They cost barely anything. If you don’t want to spend at all, you could even make use of things you have at home. Bags of sugar are fantastic alternatives to weights. Where there’s a will, there’s a way.

And, of course, the exercise you choose impacts cost, too. A choice like yoga is naturally frugal. All you need is a mat and your body. Equally, runners don’t need a running machine. Just a decent pair of trainers and the ability to turn up. By comparison, something like weightlifting could set you back. If money is a worry, avoid the more expensive options, and opt for exercise which doesn’t require a whole lot!
