Mark National Fitness Day with these freebies ranging from vitamins to gym deals
GETTING IN SHAPE has never been easier – or cheaper.
Today is National Fitness Day – and with the London Marathon quickly approaching October 3 – it’s time to improve your game.
From free vitamins to gym deals, follow these tips to really reap the rewards. . .
D-DAY: Holland & Barrett is giving away a free bottle of Vitamin D with every vitamin or supplement purchase in-store or online today.
RUN FOR HIM: Jogging costs nothing and is one of the easiest ways to improve your cardio. But if that seems like a chore, try an app to spice things up. The NHS Couch To 5k is still my favorite and it’s free. Go now!
RAID YOUR CABINETS: Heavy kitchen items, such as milk cartons and tomato boxes, can be used as makeshift dumbbells, helping you increase your resistance training without the gym. However, Argos also offers 20% off many fitness equipment, including dumbbells and kettlebells.
GYM AND WEAR IT: Check out your local gym for a free day pass or for any specials. At my nearby Fitness First center, I can take a friend for free today. Anytime Fitness hosts a free open house nationwide at its over 175 gyms. For details, see anytimefitness.co.uk/nfd2021.
FOLLOW A FREE PT: Take advantage of thousands of free influencer workouts on YouTube, Facebook and Instagram. If you want to relax, try Yoga By Adriene on YouTube.
HOME TRAINING: Try Les Mills fitness classes free for 14 days. So save 75% on your first month. Meanwhile, TRX is offering 12 months of free, unlimited access to on-demand workouts. It also offers a greatly reduced price of Â£ 99.95 for full 12 month unlimited access to TRX Training Club courses, plus a free Pro4 suspension trainer, saving over Â£ 300. Just visit club.trxtraining.com by Friday.
FOLLOW YOUR STEPS FOR CHEAPER: At Â£ 34.99, the new Xiaomi Mi Smart 6 band fitness tracker is a lot cheaper than, say, the Garmin Forerunner 945, which will set you back Â£ 429.99. I know which one I prefer to wear.
