BONUS: 2 quick “do-anywhere” workouts

Something happens when you miss a scheduled workout… Once that door gets opened, all your hard-won motivation can slip outside. And next thing you know, you’re skipping future workouts, too. That’s one reason I always talk about the importance of sneaking in a quick workout instead of skipping your planned workouts when you’re short on time.

Making exercise a priority (even if you only have time for a 15-minute workout!) helps to KEEP it a priority.

With that in mind, I have 2 time-crunch workouts for you in this email that you can do if you’re traveling, don’t have access to equipment, or are short on time over the holidays.

Workout 1 will give you a cardio boost

Workout 2 will work your muscles

Workout 1: Quick Cardio Burst

Duration: 15 minutes

Warm-Up: 2 minutes of jumping jacks or high knees

Workout:

  • 30 seconds of burpees
  • 30 seconds of rest
  • 30 seconds of mountain climbers
  • 30 seconds of rest
  • 30 seconds of skaters (side-to-side hops)
  • 30 seconds of rest

Rest as needed and repeat 4 times

Workout 2: Total Body Tone-Up

Duration: 20 minutes

Warm-Up:

  • 1 minute of arm circles (30 seconds forward, 30 seconds backward)
  • 30 seconds of squats

Workout:

  • 40 seconds of push-ups  (from knees or toes)
  • 20 seconds of rest
  • 40 seconds of squats

Both (or either) of these workouts will get the job done!

Remember: It’s the little things that you do consistently that move the needle on your health and fitness!

Keep moving!
