If you’re like me, finding time to exercise seems like a bigger battle than the actual exercise itself.
My morning starts off rushing to get my son and I ready to leave on time which is a miracle if that does happen. My day ends with little ol’ me exhausted after a full day of work, coming home to parent, and cook dinner.
I sneak in fitness moves and walking throughout my work day, but finding time to devote to fitness is challenging.
Personally, I find it difficult to go to the gym for 60 plus minutes without wanting to leave and tackle my growing to-do list at home.
I decided to make myself a 15 minute quick workout to jump start my day. In addition to my 15 minute jump start workout, I also have a 20 minute dance party in the afternoon once I get home with my son. I also sneak walks in around the office throughout my day.
Since my afternoon dance party can be considered my cardio, I try to fit in strength moves in the morning to wake up my muscles and my mind.
I also switch up my routine daily! Below are FIVE days worth of 15 minute quick workouts you can do.
None of the workouts below require special equipment or the need to purchase anything new.
You can fit in a lot of moves in 15 minutes!
