You might think that you need to join a gym or buy specialist equipment in order to exercise to lose pregnancy weight and improve your fitness.
But the truth is there are loads of ways to exercise each and every day without spending any money at all.

Exercise at the park

When the little ones are running about, it’s only natural to want to sit down on a park bench and watch them (and take 4,000 photos of them). But this is a golden opportunity to get active while your kids are occupied. Do some lunges, use the bench for some tricep dips, stride up and down the stairs if there are some there – you get the picture.

Take your baby for a walk

Some days you just need to get some fresh air (and it can even help a restless baby get to sleep – they like fresh air too). Pack up the pram and pound the pavement for 20 minutes.

Use cans as weights

If it’s raining and you’re stuck at home while the kids draw or play, grab two tins of food (tomatoes, lentils, etc) from the cupboard and use them as weights. Work your biceps and triceps and think about what you could cook for dinner using what you are holding (just for fun).

Take the long way

Anywhere you go, take the longer route. Walk around an extra block to get to the supermarket. Arrive early to the doctor’s and do a ten minute walk before your appointment.

Find a pool 

In many areas there are free pools available for use, such as ocean pools by the beach. If you don’t live by the sea, maybe you have a friend with a pool who would let you pop in for a few laps.

Borrow an exercise DVD

Most libraries have a stack of workout DVDs available, or maybe a friend has some you could try out. And if you find one you really love, maybe you could save up for it. Naturally we would recommend you try the Healthy Mummy Post Pregnancy Exercise DVD. It’s made for mums and is all broken down into 10 and 15 minute workouts.

Ride your bike

Jump on your bike (or borrow one) and get moving. Try to find routes with some hills and inclines to get your heart pumping. Cycling is great to do with a friend, so why not start a regular weekly cycle with a few pals.

Go hiking

Really get a sweat on by finding a local spot where you can go for a hike. Get your heart rate up as you explore your area and work your legs and bum.

Walk with a friend 

We all know that when meeting someone for coffee there will be a massive amount of temptation to deal with in terms of the glass cabinet of cakes. So why not skip the caffeine and go straight for the walk and chat instead.
