    Details

    One of the hardest parts about working out is getting started – both on a long term scale when you haven’t worked out in years, and on a short term, daily scale when you’ve got everything you need to be active (i.e. your bodyweight and Fitness Blender videos) but you’re having trouble working up the motivation to get actually get moving.



    Coming in at just under 14 minutes, this at home cardio workout completely defies any excuse not to exercise, especially a lack of time.

    Don’t wait, and don’t over think it; put on your workout shoes, turn on some music that motivates you, and press the play button. It will be over before you know it and by the time you’re done your mood will be better, you will feel healthier, stronger, accomplished, energized, and maybe even ready for another Fitness Blender workout video.

    We start off with a few minutes of relatively light cardio, but quickly move into some heart pounding, fat burning exercises that will challenge and shape your body. You may want to do a few extra minutes of warm up cardio, but as long as you haven’t been sedentary for any extended period of time, the first group of exercises may serve as a warm up for many people. You wont need any equipment for this workout but an exercise mat is optional.
