Tip of the week: How to work out for less

Download lessons; Stalk stores; App up

Download lessons. Good exercise videos can be found without “shelling out $15” for each new DVD. An $8.99 monthly Netflix subscription, for example, includes access to yoga, Pilates, and cardio workouts that can be streamed through your computer or TV. Fitsugar.com offers free downloads of workout and stretching videos.

Stalk stores. Keep track of sale dates at major sporting-goods stores and gyms. Most offer “40 percent to 60 percent” discounts for workout clothes two times a year. Look up sale periods for a few local stores, then “mark your calendar.”

App up. You don’t need to buy expensive watches and pedometers if you have a multitasking smart phone. Apps like the free RunKeeper for iPhone keep track of the “distance and pace” of your jog, while calculating the number of calories you burn.
