America Trim Your Waist Not Your Wallet


WASHINGTON (RushPRNews) 12/29/08– In today’s economy, it is more important than ever to find ways to stay healthy while remaining conscious of the pocketbook. Celia Kibler, a fitness maverick and the founder of Funfit family fitness, an all-inclusive family fitness program, has money saving tips for health and money conscious Americans. Celia has been featured in numerous AP’s stories and on Fox News nationwide.

Here are Celia’s Tips: 

Walking and walking again is the best


• Walking twenty minutes a day is free
• Adopt a dog from the local rescue center and turn walking the pet into a family activity
• Go jogging with the dog
• Take the stairs instead of the elevator
• Park your car far away from your destination (again walking)
• If weather permits, ride your bicycle instead of driving
• Utilize public park areas, i.e. walking, trails, hiking, swimming
• When visiting health clubs, inquire about their family discounts and other saving plans.
• Visit club’s website prior to the inquiry or visit to see if they offer online coupons

Tips for saving money on food include
• Plan weekly meals thoughtfully using coupons and discounts
• Save gas money with the one-week complete shop
• Eat-in
• Don’t buy process food, just whole food

With centers charging $400 to over $1,000 for a child’s party, Funfit offers the “No-Frills Party” that allows the family complete, private use of the Funfit Center for a party of up to 12 kids (adults are free) for one-1/2 hours.

Pizza is available at a reduced Funfit special pricing and face-painting can be added for a nominal charge. It’s a great way to throw a great party for your child, without the mess of having it in your home or breaking the bank.

For customers that live at a greater distance from the Funfit Family Fitness Center, Funfit also helps with the cost of gas; by offering Funfit Tots classes throughout the Wash DC Metro area through local, County Recreation facilities are cost-efficient with family-friendly priced classes and close to home.
