Cheap Fitness Programs to Stay Fit During the Off Season

exerciseAre you looking for a great way to stay fit during the off season? Well, there are a ton of different options out there, but as a college student many options can be expensive. Today I’ll look at some economical ways to stay fit during the off season.

Home fitness programs – P90x and others

A home fitness program is always a great economical solution; with so many videos and dvds out there, training at home is easy. I personally recommend P90x as it is a great program that really hits all areas as it includes weight lifting, cardio, stretching and yoga. The dvds are only around $100 – cheaper if you get them used and you’ll only need to spend another $70 or so for workout bands, a pullup bar and yoga mat.

An alternative to P90x is Insanity. This program focuses more on cardio, so you’re going to have to supplement this with another weights workout separately. Of course there are a ton of different dvd sets that you can get. There has also been a massive surge in fitness apps, so if you have a smart phone, I’d recommend checking the selection to see if anything looks interesting.


Crossfit has a huge following with different “workout of the days”. It’s an intense regime as you are working out every day. But if you want to look great, this is an excellent way to go. The down side to this program is that you’ll have to shell out a little more on some weights or a gym membership for lifting some of the heavier weights. P90x doesn’t have this disadvantage as you use bands and body weight for resistance.

Group sports

During the off season you could play a different sport that is less demanding. Sports like Ultimate Frisbee or Casual Football can be fun and a great way to meet people. These typically have less serious leagues that you can join and stay fit over the off-season.

There are plenty of options to workout and stay fit over the off-season. The best thing to do is to experiment and find what works best for you. Good luck!
