The cost of keeping up with your New Year's resolution of getting in shape? Yeah, it's high. Once you've covered all the new workout clothes (for motivation, duh) and pricey eats and high-end smoothies, you've still got to consider the method. And it's not usually cheap, even if you pay for all-encompassing, all-access passes. But if you're a student, you're in luck. There are plenty of gyms that will knock some dough off the price of their classes to compensate you for pursuing your education. —Alison Baitz
