4 Free Workouts for This Summer

Cheap workout ideas

If you want to save money and skip the gym membership this summer, check out these workout ideas that are free, like water aerobics.

Everyone is talking about their summer workout plan and getting that bikini body, and all you can think about is how expensive those fitness classes and boot camps are! Alpine Bank understands. We know you want to save this summer and still be active and fit. Instead of spending your summer trapped in the gym, why not enjoy the great outdoors and get a workout at the same time, for free?! Check out our list of totally free workouts!

Go Geocaching

Geocaching is just a cool word for treasure hunting with GPS coordinates available on geocaching websites. Look online for local parks with geocaching opportunities. Make it a workout by trying to reach the stash in a certain amount of time.

Get Climbing

Who needs the gym rock wall when you can climb a tree? Have a buddy on stand-by just to be safe, and only climb trees with sturdy limbs.

Use Water (and Sand!) Resistance

Get in the water, squat, and shuffle from side to side, staying low. Try going faster or digging your feet into the sand for more resistance.

Get closer to nature

Who needs gym equipment? Use rocks, park benches and logs for dips and step-ups. Use a low tree limb as a pull-up bar. If you want a bicep workout, throw a rope around a tree and over a low branch. Hold the ends of the rope and stand where there is only a little slack. Lean back and use your biceps to pull you upright. Try using one leg and bending the other for a harder challenge.

You can get in shape this summer and still save money! These workouts give you a chance to enjoy the summer weather while being active. It’s all about being creative with your workouts and thinking outside the gym!
