For this week’s Thrifty Thursday column, I thought I’d look at something that also helps with healthy living, and weight loss. (I’ll be starting a new weight loss day next week.) We’ll talk about food some other time because there are some great ways to save money there as well, but I just started a new exercise program, so I thought I’d talk about ways to save money on gym memberships and exercise classes first. Gym memberships are expensive, and a luxury that not everyone can afford. As a full-time graduate student, I certainly couldn’t afford to join the local gym, but there may be other options available to someone looking to be a little thrifty.
