  • walk, run, jog, do squats, do jumping jacks, etc. And you can even go buy some cheap weights to help build your arms too.

  • My mom used to walk/jog around a park's large pond while I rode my bike ahead of her. Now my dd is 5 months and I use a machine in the house, and walk around the neighborhood or walk to the nearby park. I also dance around and "work out" to music. DD thinks I'm doing it to entertain her and she smiles and laughs til she gets bored with it. Even in 5 minute increments throughout the day I get a little work out that way.

  • weight training can be done with a can of soup (not empty!), stretches can be done without cost and resistence can be done using a belt or a towel for resistence instead of bands. Of course walking is still free.

  • I am a firm believer in using stability ball exercises to tone and scult muscules.
