Jogging is one of the best ways to lose weight. It improves your cardiovascular fitness, reduces blood pressure and burns fat. Jogging does not require any special equipment so it can be done for free! You can even do it with your family, friends or dog.   

2. Attend free exercise classes

4. Download fitness apps

Fitness apps not only encourage you to get fit or lose weight. They can also help you to keep track of the calories you consume every day by tracking the minutes you exercise or the number of steps you took depending on the fitness app you download. Some of the best fitness apps are Google Fit, JEFIT Workout Exercise Trainer, and RunKeeper.

5. Get cheap home exercise equipment

Instead of going to the gym and paying for an expensive membership, why not turn your home into your gym? You can buy cheap gym equipment from Gumtree, Ebay, or Amazon. You can even use the things you already have in your home such as skipping ropes, a sack of rice for lifting weights, or your staircase for your cardio exercise.
