Recession-Proof Your Workout: Active.com Budget Page

Staying active doesn't need to cost a fortune. While you might be used to flying across the country for fun races, traveling might not be in your fitness budget this year. Active.com, my favorite Internet resource for finding athletic events, now has a web page dedicated to working out and racing on a shoestring budget.

From lists of camping-friendly races to at-home workouts, Active on a Budget has plenty of information to help you recession-proof your workout. They even provide tips on how to fuel yourself without breaking the bank. Have any tips of your own on recession-proofing your fitness life? Share them in the comments section below.

I'm running more (local) races this year! In a recession, the charities need you more than ever.

Running is pretty free. You don't really *need* all of the other stuff, just shoes.

I check out workout DVDs at the library so I can preview them and so I don't get bored with them. If I REALLY like one, I'll buy it, but this way I don't end up buying something I don't really like.

I traded in buying fitness magazines for the internet. There are great workout for free on YouTube. My favorite channel is DietHealth
