5 Budget-Friendly Solutions for the Busy Entrepreneur


It’s the holiday season, and while a beach body is the last thing on your mind, you still want to stay active and healthy during this time. As an entrepreneur, we understand that your lifestyle doesn’t always leave room for time-consuming workouts, so we have picked the workouts that we found both effective and enjoyable.

1. Kayla Itsines’ Bikini Body Guide

This Instagram star has established herself as the reigning queen of fitness, with a loyal following of her Bikini Body Guides (#BBG). Her fans post amazing before and after pictures as well as encouraging stories and recipes on her website. While the bikini body guide is not cheap, it is a one-time purchase that will (if you stick with it) lead to great results. The exercises are circuit-based and rely on the same types of movement used by athletes. You can also purchase an accompanying nutritional guide. While additional equipment is required (hand weights, a jump rope, a bosu ball), it’s still is cheaper in the long run than ag monthly gym membership.

2. Neghar Fonooni’s Bikini Rebel Guide

Another star in the fitness world, Neghar is committed to empowering women through a program that focuses on mental and physical strength rather than attaining a particular look. Her style of workout is kettle-bell focused and she is one of the strongest women on the planet, all while still touting her femininity. Neghar’s workouts are tough but effective, and her program includes space for self-reflection. She also makes recommendations about nutrition.

3. Ballet Beautiful

Former New York City Ballet dancer Mary Helen Bowers is the founder of this school. You can choose a monthly subscription that includes more than 100 workouts, or simply purchase the DVDs and train in front of your T.V. The workouts are ballet-based and focus on working small muscles for that dancer physique. Cardio workouts are also included.

4. Crunch Time

Choose from more than 75 online classes including barre, yoga and strength training, as well as cardio and several bootcamps. Classes have fun names like gospel house aerobics and urban attitude dance. Their popular belly, butt and thigh bootcamp and ab attack classes are in there too.

5. Sworkit

Sworkit is a fitness app that has received rave reviews, so this may be the solution for you! When you open the app, you can choose to focus on strength, cardio, yoga, or stretching. All the exercises are bodyweight-based, so you don't need additional equipment for any of the workouts. It's a nice way to get a varied workout that can be done at home or on the road. There are also options for either a quick five-minute workout or a custom workout.
