What exercise do you do when you can't afford or go to a gym?

Yep, I use the wii fit too.
If I am really feeling bad, and the time is right I will sign up for a class at the community college. The price is great plus you get free range of the gym when you are not in class. It's lovely.

There are some really good fitness magazines that give alot of moves you can do at home,shape,Fitness,and Runners...There are even youtube videos with exercise moves. Well how about ridding bike,running,and some really good workout dvds? I know turbo jam is awsome,winsor pilates,all beachbody programs are eally good I own quite a few. My favorite is turbo jam and shaun T ones. maybe you could swim a few hours a week?

I cut the lawn by push mower, and I prefer to use the older models that you have to work at getting them moving;l you clench your whole body cause those things are heavy. I use the self propelled one and set it on the fastest setting so I basically run behind it.

When ever I am sitting down for more than twenty minutes at a time (because sometimes I forget to get up and stretch my back) so I sit on an exercise ball. That keeps your muscles working lots, works my back and my core muscles strengthening them. Which is what I am after. So if I sit down and write parts of a story, I might loose track of more than half a day. At least sitting on the ball, I feel as if I have been more productive than normal.

My biggest change of lifestyle, has been working on my posture. I've had a lot of back issues this past year and I never want them again. So I have to work on getting rid of the midsection. Which means pulling my belly in tight, and REMEMBERING it when I bend, or weed my gardens.

Yoga! It helps with flexibility, keeping you toned, and its relaxing.

Walking, running, swimming (in the ocean), biking, hiking, physical labour (heheh that last one takes care of the being broke part too!)

I have been slowly building my own gym. I have a Shwinn exercise bike & a proform ab glider, many resistance bands, weights, medicine ball, pilates ball, thigh master. Thinking about making one of my spare bedrooms into a mini gym with mirrored walls & all.

There are wonderful bellydance videos that you can use to keep in shape and explore your sensual side. I take a class and supplement with videos, yoga, and weights.

Anything that will get your heart rate up like aerobics, swimming, running, jump roping, etc. will help you with burning calories, thus aid in weight loss.

If you go to a thriftstore, you can pick up an exercise machine that works perfectly for only $30. Walker, bike, you name it.

I think the most effective at home exercise I've found is skipping. It's a good work out, easy to do, cheap, and you can do it pretty much anywhere.

Yeah — jumping rope is an awesome workout. I also like yoga (or just stretching if you prefer), and simple stuff like pushups and situps/crunches. Cycling can be great, as well as walking, running, hiking... We have a treadmill which is great for rainy days. Just flip on the TV and start walking briskly. I often zone out and am amazed to find an hour's gone by!

I use "no money for the gym" as excuse to do nothing.

I teach at a university; so I have access to a gym. However, I don't like the atmosphere very much... so I've been running the steps of the stadium. If you have access to a building or public area with a lot of stairs, this is a really intense workout that doesn't take all that long.
