Four convenient workout routines in ten minutes or less.

Let’s face it, many people these days are on the go and just don’t have the time to get to a fitness center throughout their day, let alone during peak hours.

By peak hours we mean in the morning before work, and during the usual rush hours, after work. These are the times when your typical gym is packed to the gills with people.

And let’s not even mention how, beyond the elbow-bumping overcrowding factor, everything is just so sweaty and misty. Not the most conducive environment for fitness motivation, is it?

 

We’ve got four highly effective fitness routines that you can do right in the comfort of your own home, with minimal space required. Each of these workouts can be performed in ten minutes or less, making them perfect for either before or after work.
