( -- What can you do if you can’t afford the membership fees at your gym, can't afford any exercise equipment and don’t want to spend a fortune on a new library of exercise videos? For the homeward bound, here are two inspiring suggestions:

Take an Exercise Class

Don’t be fooled by the headline. Signing up for an exercise class no longer has to involve shelling out twenty dollars and upward for only an hours worth of aerobic instruction. Now, you can do it in the comfort of your own home and for less than a dollar a day.

How? All you have to do is log onto and sign up for a daily, weekly, or monthly pass. You can find a wide range of workout classes-instructor included-all right there on the website. Choices can include cardio, aerobics, senior fitness and much more. All you have to do is order your class, step back and follow along.

Put in an Exercise Video

No one wants to have to spend a fortune on exercise videos. Too often you end up not liking your purchase and chances are, in a years time, you’ll be so tired of doing the same routine that you’ll be ready to throw that once beloved tape into the trash.  Now, thanks to, you don’t have to. An exercise rental website, customers familiar with the popular netflix will feel right at home.

Offering a surprising number of choices-from dance fitness to yoga to ballroom dance-exercise junkies will never suffer from lack of choices. For $11.99 a month, you can rent 1-3 videos at a time. When you’re done, simply place them in the mail and wait for the next batch to arrive in your mailbox. And best of all, there are no late fees.

So what are you waiting for? Get off the couch and join in!
