Fitness is something that is important to college students but sometimes hard to find time to do. There are many simple ways to workout that fits your time schedule and your budget. Here are some of the most efficient ways to workout on a college schedule and budget.

1. Go for a walk

I am lucky enough to live near a high school that has a track. This is perfect for running, walking, or strength training. You can also use the bleachers to workout as well.

2. Play tennis

The high school near my house also has tennis courts. Tennis is a great way to stay in shape and have fun while doing it.

3. Pure Barre

Most college campuses have a barre studio near it. Barre is a great way to stay in shape. It really works your body and is a fun way to exercise.

4. Yoga

Most college campuses offer classes, whether it is in the school gym or throughout campus. This is a super fun way to stay in shape and listen to good music.

5. The Gym

This is a classic way to stay in shape. Every school probably has gym equipment in the dorm, the college offers a gym, and there are usually a lot of gyms around campuses as well. The gym offers many things and is an overall good workout.

6. Strength Training

Keep a pair of weights in your dorm or house and you can easily do many different exercises from the comfort of your own home.

7. Abs

Abs are also another great exercise that you can do from the comfort of your own home. Google or Pinterest different ab exercises and you will never be bored with the workout.

8. Bring your high school sports equipment to school

Continue to play the sports that you used to play in high school. Bring your eqpuipment to school and play with friends or toss the ball yourself.
