Most people want a gym to make them sweat, but not because of the huge membership costs. Gym membership prices can widely differ depending on location and facilities available.

The average cost of gym memberships is £40 a month, however you can get gym memberships for as little as £15 per month.

You could save even more money by downloading money saving apps such as Money Dashboard, Chip, Voucher Codes and Squirrel. With apps like Voucher Codes you have access to hundreds of deals from your favourite shops. Get deals on restaurants, fashion stores, theme parks and family days out.

For example, Mint is a great free money management and financial tracker app. It works by bringing together your bank accounts, credit cards, bills and other investments so you can see what you’re spending and where you can start saving money. Downloading an app like Mint will help you save money efficiently and help visualise your finances so you can budget for the month.
