  1. Great post! I did a couple on saving money working out, as well. I did a couple similar posts that I feel support what you have here. I did one about some simple diy workout equipment, along with frugal non-diy options, http://mireillesjourneytohealth.com/2015/03/03/your-home-gym-is-waiting-on-you/ also, I did one on saving on a gym membership, http://mireillesjourneytohealth.com/2015/03/01/save-on-your-gym-membership/ Like you said, summer is coming, and it is easy to blow so much money on fitness, but totally not necessary.
