10062531106_6a97629d00_bAh, New Year’s resolutions. Each January we all set out to improve ourselves for the year, and one of the biggest (no pun intended) goals people have is to get in shape. The only problem with that is working out often goes against another popular resolution: save more money. Between fitness equipment, gym memberships, sporty clothes, trainers and healthy food, the expenses add up.

If you’re ready to shed some weight or just tone up and feel healthier in 2014, the good news is you don’t have to spend loads of money. Check out some codes and sales so you’ll be on your way to a healthy and budget-conscious year!

Weight loss plans

If you’re the type who needs support and guidance on your weight loss journey, joining a structured programme is a smart choice. With our exclusive code to Weight Watchers (expires this Sunday, 19 Jan), you’ll save £31.95 off the three-month plan, or at Rosemary Conley, use our code to save half off all 12-week memberships and you’ll be looking slimmer in no time!

Clothing and shoes

Running clothing is now up to 90% (!!) off at Sports Direct, so now’s the time to grab anything you need for the year ahead. These Reebok Easy Tone Capri Pants, for example, are £35 off at just £14.99, and this brightly coloured Karrimor mens running jacket is £30 off at £14.99.

If it’s time for new trainers, you’ll save up to 50% plus free delivery in the sale at Schuh. Try the mens Nike Air Max Span trainers at 34% off (£59.99) or the womens Adidas Torsion Allegra for an amazing 62% discount at £29.99!

Gym memberships

Committing to a gym membership can be daunting, especially if you’re not sure that you’ll go regularly. Get a free three-day membership at LA Fitness so you can “try before you buy,” so to speak, and over at Virgin Active, sign up with no joining fee plus get January’s membership for free!

DVDs

Rather exercise in the privacy of your home? A fitness video or game is affordable and fun, too. Dance around the room and burn calories with Zumba Fitness World Party for Xbox One (£34.98) or Wii (£25.99) with free delivery at Zavvi, or add some oomph to your yoga routine with Jillian Michaels: Yoga Meltdown DVD from The Hut (£12.95 plus free delivery).

Workout gear

Save big with our codes at Sweatband.com: a basic exercise bike like this DKN-AM-E model works a treat when you’ve got limited space, and with our £10 off £100 code, it’s just £189 plus free delivery. If running’s more your speed, take 50 quid off with our code for the Fuel Fitness 3.0 treadmill.

Healthier eating

Bin the crisps, sweets and biscuits and sign up for a Graze membership instead. You’ll receive a box full of healthy, tasty snacks for just £3.89 including delivery, and your first and fifth boxes are free. I’ve just signed up and I’m eagerly awaiting my first box!

When it comes to shopping for groceries, temptation often allows us to buy things we really don’t need (and shouldn’t be eating). That being said, online delivery is a fantastic way to stick to your list since you can simply search for what you need and be done with it. Have a click through Tesco’s site, fill your basket with healthy food and you’ll save £12 off your first order over £60 with our code.
