    Then do pull ups from a tree branch.

    There are a thousand and one body weight regimes available on the internet. Running shoes do not cost that much. Etc.

    You don't need to spend money to be fit.

    Hey, there’s loads of workout programmes on the internet/App Store/YouTube that you can do. Going for a run is also an option if you like running. If you go somewhere like decathlon then you could bag yourself some reasonably priced equipment if you have a bit of money to spare.

    Hope this helps!!

    Running and/or workout/stretching costs very little, and is very effective.

    Use the app '8fit'. It provides you with many home workouts which do not require equipment and are all bodyweight exercises.
    There is an option to add weights(a full water bottle can be used as a substitute if these are not available) to them once you have a heightened fitness level, or if you want to challenge yourself.

    Hope this helps.

    Running and weight lifting* are free and you can do it anywhere.

    * you can use your uni text books/your TV/your friend/a giant brick as weights.

    Walk, run, stretch, pull ups, sit ups, press ups, climb a tree, bench press your small friends, go on a night out in a very rough area and learn to fight, get yourself a cheap *****y bike and a helmet and zoom away into the rising sun.

    The only scary part of working out broke is that it needs self motivation and effort 'cause you can't exactly do the gym and go and be around a bunch of super motivated people to keep you...er... motivated.

    I'm sorry but having little money is absolutely no excuse for not maintaining a healthy lifestyle and exercising. How much does it cost to set up a circuit in the local park? Press ups, sit ups, burpees, sprints etc etc

    I'm not sure why people are saying running is free when you need half decent shoes to begin with. But yes, walking is free,

    those are obviously terrible but normal trainers (which pretty much everyone owns) aren't going to do a real beginner too much damage for a while so OP could get started

    I wouldn't recommend new urnners get proper shoes to begin with cos most give up... obviously anyone sticking with running should buy running specific shoes, but you don't have to spend a lot on them if you shop around for a bargain, my last pair cost <£40 (and I'm not buying crappy shoes! they were brooks adrenaline, full price is like £120 or something) and I've only spent more than £60 twice and I've been running for like 10 years
