Getting fit requires lifestyle changes -- forming good habits, exercising, eating in moderation and finding ways to stay motivated. But getting in shape can cost you hundreds or thousands of dollars in gym memberships, personal trainers and nutritionists. Some of the biggest names in the health app business have tens of millions of monthly users -- but these technologies typically target specific fitness issues and tend to be costly. And getting fit isn't a one-size-fits-all proposition.

But what if you could get an entire fitness package, without the frills and the gimmicks, completely personalized to your needs and at a great price?

The Fitterclub Personal Training One-Year Membership ($29, originally $690; store.cnn.com) is an online community that will help you reach your fitness goals with personalized workout and nutrition programs catered to your specific needs. And now it's available at an unbeatable price.

The program starts with a simple questionnaire that assesses your fitness needs and goals, and will then curate a custom exercise schedule for you. The only working out you need to commit to is 30 minutes a day, five days a week. If you stick to it for a year, you can expect to see a healthier you in the mirror.

Fitterclub also allows you to choose your desired meal plans -- ones that don't rely on calorie restrictions, food limitations or repetitive eating. If you've had had trouble sticking to exercise programs or healthier eating plans in the past, Fitterclub offers personal support and motivation from real-life coaches who are dedicated to your success. As you progress, your data is analyzed every step of the way to ensure that the program continues to be optimal, based on what works for you. And you can stream workouts to wherever you are at any time -- so you're not limited by gym hours or a busy schedule.

Still skeptical about app-based or online fitness? A 2015 study published in the Journal of Medical Internet Research indicated that people who use fitness apps show higher levels of active behavior than those who don't. The researchers concluded that fitness apps helped to lower the barriers to exercise, leading to greater self-motivation, improved BMIs and healthier lifestyles.

There are more than a million tailored fitness programs on Fitterbit, so you can be sure you'll find one that works for you. A one-year commitment to yourself and a healthier lifestyle is only $29, so there's no better time to commit to improving your health and overall well-being.
