Swimsuit Season: Low Cost Ways to Get a Beach Body

Posted on 05/10/2010

There’s no more hiding under bulky sweaters and scarves. Warmer weather is here which means swimsuit season is about to arrive...! Lots of us put on a few pounds over the winter months. But now is the time to get a beach body and with these tips you can do it without spending much money.

Determine Your Body Fat - You can pay a professional to tell you what your body fat percentage is, or you can use a free online calculator to figure it out. Livestrong.com offers this easy-to-use body fat calculator. Just plug in some body measurements and soon you’ll have a great benchmark to start your weight loss journey.

Take on Chores - Instead of hiring other people to take care of household chores, turn them into a calorie burning session. Vacuuming, mowing, and pulling weeds are all great ways to get your heart rate up. Not only will you not be spending money on this workout, but you’ll be saving some by doing the job yourself.

Jump Rope - Jumping rope is one of the best cardio workouts you can do. It’s low impact and burns more calories than just about any other activity. Plus, you can do it just about anywhere. Pick up a jump rope at NikeStore.com for $20 and start jumping.

Exercise Videos - Exercise videos are an affordable way to shake up your workout routine. Head to BestBuy.com where you can pick up great DVDs like “The Firm: The 500-Calorie Workout” for just $12.99. Alternatively, check out the collection of workout DVDs at your local library.

Get Online Help - If personal trainers or weight loss centers won’t fit your budget, try getting help from an online source. Websites like DietWatch.com include personalized meal planners, customized shopping lists and personal exercise programs for as little as $1.49 a week when you sign up for a year. It comes with a 30 day guarantee so if you don’t start to see your beach body appearing, you can get your money back.

Double Bonus! When you get your gorgeous beach body, don't spend a fortune on a teeny weeny bikini or the California-girl hair to go with it! Get a free sample of John Frieda's Sheer Blonde, and save on Victoria's Secret swimsuits! We won't tell if you buy one now to motivate you!
