Pool your resources

When it comes to exercise, swimming is clearly a stroke of genius. It strengthens your legs without impacting your knees, burns calories without making you smell like your antiperspirant failed, all while working your heart and lungs.

OK, it requires you to wear a swimsuit in public. That's a small price to pay. And speaking of small prices, you generally can find a good public pool for as little as $4 per visit, says Jeff Commings, an associate producer at TV.SwimmingWorldMagazine.com. Another way to save money is join a gym with a pool or take advantage of community service organizations such as the YMCA.

Age is no excuse. Provided you have a suit, dive in for as little as $20 for basics like goggles and a swim cap.
