Household Objects That Can Improve Your Fitness
If the price tag on a gym membership and home equipment is enough to make you want to give up on getting in shape entirely, take heart. You don’t have to enroll in a monthly payment plan in the name of a good workout. With a little ingenuity, you can repurpose everyday household items into weights, benches, and suspension systems, and transform your home into a gym—for a fraction of the cost.

These creative reuses of cheap, easy-to-find items will help you break a sweat—not the bank.
