Diet and exerciseWe’ve all been there. We’re in the midst of running a list of errands and we suddenly remember: “I forgot to workout today!”. Instead of skipping the gym entirely and ruining your routine, why don’t you exercise while you shop?! Don’t worry, we’re not talking about sprinting from store to store in the mall. A surprising number of fitness apparel stores are now offering classes in select stores for free or for a reasonable price. We’ve come up with a list of the most popular stores for you to check out.

1. Athleta

Athleta is seen as one of the fastest growing brands in the fitness apparel game. In addition to providing reasonably priced athletic gear Athleta also offers in-store fitness classes at select stores. Be sure to check out your local store’s website to see a schedule for their fitness classes, group runs, and special events. To see your closest Athleta location click here.

2. Nike

Everyone knows of Nike, but not everyone knows they offer programs like run clubs or Nike Training Classes. Like it sounds, a run club offers a community for those who’d like to run with others. However, Nike Training Classes are fitness classes based on the Nike fitness app. Keep in mind these programs are only available at select stores and programs do fill up quickly. So, if you can pre-register for a class it would be a good idea to do so. To see a list of upcoming Nike run clubs or Nike Training Classes click here.

3.  Lululemon

Don’t let the price tag of Lululemon’s quality yoga and workout gear scare you off. Plenty of Lululemon locations offer a free weekly class hosted by local instructors or guest studios which specialize in yoga, meditation, or some other type of fitness activity.

4.  Reebok

Considering Reebok is now the official provider of everything Crossfit (apparel, shoes, etc.) they thought it would be a good idea to toss their hat into the fitness ring. Trust us, you’ll be glad they did. Reebok has designated “FitHubs” at select stores in Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, and Washington D.C. which host a variety of fitness classes specializing in kettle bell, cardio-dancing, and CrossFit routines.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
