I'd say I'm a relatively active and physically fit person. I horse ride, jog, use a cross trainer and do muscle exercises such as squats, lunges, jacknives and press ups etc. I also use the wii fit for the shadow boxing and set exercises. I'd say I do at least an hour of exercise a day and complete any jogging/ running and muscle exercises about 5 times a week. I'd also say I'm pretty toned.
However, even though I currently have a part time job, I can't afford the monthly fees at the gym. I'm hoping to go to the gym in September at uni as they offer discounts for students. I also hope to get a job at uni too. Is there anything else I can do to improve my fitness which doesn't require the gym?

Try more difficult variations of the bodyweight exercises, and start doing sprint intervals. In preparation for the gym, start reading about proper barbell training.

Put a pair of trainers on and go for a run or do sprints. You don't need a gym membership to get out of breath.

Yeah, running is one of the best ways to do that. If you can work up to doing 5-10 km consistently (say 2 times a week), you'll be very fit.
Just find a place nearby you where you can run (ideally a park or something along those lines) and plan routesLast edited by Telloth; 20-07-2014 at 13:52.
