MAKING IT FIT: The start of a new year inspires many of us to commit to get fit and live healthier. What isn't required is emptying out one's wallet just to break a sweat and shed a few pounds.

GYM DANDIES: Gyms often will let prospective customers try out their facilities free for a day, sometimes even for a week. Take advantage of these free trial periods before making a yearlong commitment to a gym.

FREESTYLE: Best way to save money on exercise? Don't spend any. Grab a friend and go for a hike. Walk or bike to work.
