    Calisthenics = same as above.

    Swimming = cost of pool/gym membership (neighborhood rec center is usually pretty cheap) + swimsuit + goggles. A little more expensive, but you can find good deals. Relatively Cheap

    Cost of Boxing gym membership < Cost MA membership. Boxing gyms are usually run more spartan than MA gyms, so they are cheaper. Not bad.

    LOL! Have you an Idea what good shoes cost?! (Or good support equipment for the well endowed female?!)


    OK, How about Gymnastics: Cha-ching every time you walk through the doors
    Cheerleading - ought to be cheap, no?
    Baseball - camp after camp....but mileage may vary, youth baseball is like a religion around here...

    Horseback riding, one lesson can cost you 60$ and up, and you don't always get a a full hour...not even to mention the helmet, the footwear and clothes. Or getting into horse ownership, figure 300$ barest minimum on housing your equipment, hoping nothing goes wrong...

    Bike riding...LOL I guess one could go out with a bike from Wally World, but you still need someone following you to keep you from getting creamed in the road...


    So we have to pay a little extra every so often...big deal. If what we get is worth it to us....

    (I have the choice of 8 classes I can work out at, or all if I can crawl to the Dojang, I get to test with and be judged by people other than the ones I train with - the facilities are nice but need to be paid by the school. Our school is finally expanding and will be offering more amenities to the students, that too does not come cheap. Let's face it, if the school is financially stable we stand a chance to work out there over time. The city has seen many schools open and close, ours has been around for a while and promises to stay...)

    If this is what you want to do, if this is what you set out to learn, then the price is right to persute your passion....

          There's other kinds of riding you can do, get a full hour in and get a complete workout. Skateboarding. Low tech -> High results.

              I know, that full-moon does strange things.

                I should wear elbow pads for ground escapes.... ???

                Got some mat burn last night, somewhere along the line of the roll or the fall...

                Still, the pads won't keep the arm s and legs from breaking...just the elbows and knees...

                      Jogging is cheaper.

                          You can buy a nice pair of running shoes for $80 - $100 like Saucony - which I've bought and have run the hell outta them and they're still holding up. You don't need any other accessories if you're being $$$ conscious.

                          A horseback ride is $60 a pop.
