Do you perhaps want to stay fit and lose some weight, maybe even tone some muscles here and there but the thought of a gym membership cost makes you cringe? Are you tired of saving up for that treadmill you one saw in the mall and just knew you had to have it? Does buying exercise equipment make your pockets empty, making you cut down on a lot of other necessities? If yes, then congratulations! You are among 80 percent of the young Pakistani generation for whom, working out means spending money that is way out of the pocket. It’s this very thought that makes you think ‘Nah, maybe I’m just better off jogging or walking’.
Even if you do manage to somehow get that gym membership for a month, what may worry you is the diet ka kharcha because Abba Jaan certainly wouldn’t pay for those teen darjann anday that you plan on consuming post-workout. Here’s how you can be a fitness freak even if you get a minimal pocket money.
Pick An Outdoor Sport
Going to the gym isn’t all that there is in order to keep a fit body. Enroll yourself in a basketball club or play football, maybe? All you need is regular playing and you’ll see your body changing. This is perfect for those who don’t really want to get abs but just want to remain fit. You can also choose the hiking or the swimming over that trip to the gym, these are options that are basically free of charge. All you need to bring along is your motivation.
Make Use Of The Stuff At Home
Honestly, it might pretty much amaze you how even a chair can act as workout equipment. Yes, really, you can make use of everyday household objects to train yourself and you don’t have to spend on fancy bouncy balls and dumb bells. Does your house have stairs? Great! Take a pile of books and hike up and down the stairs carrying them. Heard of inverted pushups? All you need is a wall for that.
Be Your Own Trainer
You really don’t need to hire a personal trainer for yourself, unless you are a 100% genuine burger case, then you can consider and your Abba Jaan urf Daddy can pay for that. But if you are a seedha saadha sa university boy who asks for a ride back home from a friend each day, yet wants to have a healthy body, you don’t need anyone else except your motivation and the internet connection. YouTube is a blessing in this case. You would find training videos by world-class top-notch fitness gurus and that too, for free. All you need to do is follow up.
Another thing you need to understand is that your Cell Phone isn’t just meant for taking those Candy Cam selfies, you can download apps that track your footsteps and tell you how much you’ve walked, also helping you set some goals for each day’s steps. Apps like MyFitnessPal and Blogilates are free of cost, super interactive and super helpful. If you can afford a little amount online, then for this purpose, Nutright is the best app on Android and coming soon on iOS.
