All you need for this workout is some motivation!
This workout uses a combination of bodyweight strength moves, Pilates, and even Barre influenced butt and thigh exercises.
We all live very busy lives, but if you don't have ten spare minutes for exercise, that might be a good time to take an honest look at your lifestyle. I know it's easier said than done. Though I technically work in the fitness industry, my job has me sitting in front of my laptop all day long, and it's not at all unusual for my work week to go over 60 hours. In order to keep my body healthy and my sanity in tact, exercise is absolutely essential. Quick workouts like this one, especially when they don't require any equipment at all, are a great way to sneak little bursts of activity into your day; just make sure you add a quick warm up and cool down.
10 Minutes; 45 seconds on, 15 seconds rest
Good for: toning, burning fat, muscle burnout, two-a-days, quick bursts of activity and/or working up to strength training
No warm up or cool down (both are highly recommended)

You can take this workout with you; it's a great hotel workout and you could easily do this in an office or break room at work (if you don't mind some funny looks).
Do you turn to quick bursts of activity to keep your patience and focus high while you're at work? I find that getting up and moving around a little bit boosts creativity, and helps me stay positive.
