If you are looking for ways to keep your New Year Resolution, or just looking for new ways to keep fit then our list of cheap ways to keep fit in 2014 should be right up your alley. We all know that gym memberships and other fitness tools can add up in cost, but there are some excellent ways to stay fit on the cheap – and it will not need to break the bank!


Sometimes people do not realize that a brisk walk each day can have some incredible health benefits, and in some cases walking is just as good as running in terms of fitness and exercise. If you can walk to classes or work, instead of taking public transport or your car, you will notice very quickly the benefits to your health.

Use Stairs

If you live in an apartment building, this is a great little change that can reap huge benefits for you (especially if you live in a tall building). Taking the stairs everyday, instead of an elevator is a great way to burn off some calories, but also condition your body. You could even find that taking the stairs is quicker for you, and could save you some time – so give it a go and you will be surprised at how much it can actually help you!


We all hate cleaning and tidying our room or apartment, but it has to be done at some point. So why not make it fun and enjoyable – put on some music and get the cleaning done while dancing. As long as your roommate is not around, enjoy it and do something a little different and the calories you will burn up will be surprising!

Local Parks/Clubs

You will often find that in your local park there will be teams that practice, in the USA there are soccer leagues, softball leagues and all kinds of sports. Check out the notice board at your local field and you should find information on these clubs and sports. They often cost very little, are a great way to meet new people and stay fit!

Hopefully these simple ideas will help you stay fit in 2014, and feel free to post any comments with other ideas and suggestions for cheap ways to keep fit in 2014.
