Staying healthy as well as wealthy

4 steps to reach your health and savings goals at the same time

According to ING’s latest Sense of Us report, some of the top goals for Aussies are getting healthier as well as wealthier. So to set you on the right path, here are some smart steps to achieving your health goals without eating away at your savings goals.

Get the flexibility of a ClassPass

Going to the gym can be a great way to hit your health goals but memberships are not only expensive but lock you into one network.

Services like ClassPass, let you access a range fo different fitness classes at thousands of gyms and studios for a monthly fee. Try your hand at boxing, yoga or pilates.

Put a gym in your pocket

These days there are  a heap of free or affordable health and fitness apps available to download, and often the only piece of equipment you need is a smartphone.

For instance, with the Map My Run app you can record your route, track your calories and even share your progress with your buddies… where you run (or walk) is up to you.


See what’s on around you

Community fitness events are also a fun way to help stay fit while making new connections at the same time.

A good place to start is to check if your local council or community group offers fitness events or activities. They’re often free or only require a small fee to join.

Also, check out your local parks to see if free outdoor gym equipment has been installed.

Remember to give your savings a workout too!

Finally, don’t let your savings laze around while you’re out there putting in the hard yards.


For instance, with ING’s Savings Maximiser you not only earn a competitive standard rate but could earn ING’s highest available variable rate when you hold an Orange Everyday and meet the monthly eligibility criteria. Terms and conditions apply, more details can be found here.

There are also no monthly fees, minimum balance requirements or restrictions on accessing your savings. Think of it as a gym for your money.
