I do not pay for a gym membership! I have hand weights, a resistance band, a kettle bell, a set of stairs, hiking boots, a bike and snow shoes. All except for the set of stairs, were gifts or purchased second hand.
I stay in decent shape and I have neither an annual nor a monthly fee for excercise!
I see people drive up to the local gym, circle the lot to find the closest parking spot, then go inside. Mind boggling, indeed.
Go for a hike, friends! Trust me on this one.
