This Freebie Will Help You Rock Your Health and Fitness Goals All Year Long

Have you resolved to eat well, exercise more or live healthier this year? This freebie could help you stick to it.

Get a free one-year subscription to Shape magazine here.

The women’s fitness magazine offers health, fitness, beauty and fashion news. Plus you’ll find new workouts, diet strategies and motivational tips in each monthly edition.

A bunch of us in the TPH office have already jumped on this freebie. My co-workers have enjoyed Shape for a while, taking advantage of the at-home workouts when they don’t feel like going to the gym.

Personally, I just like getting stuff for free.

With this deal, you’ll receive 10 complimentary editions of Shape over the next year.

Surprise! The Freebie Includes Another Deal

You also have the option to subscribe to up to three other magazines at a discount — $2 each for a one-year subscription to other magazines like Women’s Health, Yoga, Men’s Health, TIME, Entrepreneur and People.

If you don’t want another subscription, you can skip that step.

I entered my information to subscribe to Shape, plus paid $2 to subscribe to Time for a year.

Note that if you sign up for one of these discounted subscriptions, you agree to automatically renew after a year. You should receive an email reminder with the renewal price, but just in case, I recommend setting up a reminder yourself to decide whether you want to renew — and pay full price.

After choosing the Time subscription, I was actually offered the option to choose another free subscription, this time from a much smaller selection: Parents, People en Espanol and a few trade publications.

Because it’s free and I like pretty pictures, I subscribed to Outdoor Photographer.

So I signed up for three one-year magazine subscriptions for just $2. Not bad.

I don’t know whether my Outdoor Photographer subscription is set to auto-renew, so I’ll be checking on that once the magazines start to arrive — which, according to the website, could take 4-12 weeks.

In the meantime, I’ll explore some free online options for getting in shape.
