Two Quick Workouts (You Can Do Anywhere)

Two Quick Workouts (You Can Do Anywhere)

Happy humpday!  I never get tired of saying that and I totally should.  It gets me loads of eye rolls.  Too bad, right?

Since this week is about stopping negative behaviors and starting healthy actions, I thought it would be fitting to give you two challenging and effective quick workouts that you can do anywhere.

Back when I worked in an office, I was always so busy and felt like the only stretching or exercising I could fit in was walking back and forth to the shared printer!  It’s critical (and research shows) for people who have ‘desk jobs’ to take breaks from sitting and take in some much-needed movement.  I should have taken breaks to fit in mini workouts to keep my energy levels up and improve my focus and mood.

These two workouts could easily be done on a break (if you’ve got the space)!

Even if you’re short on time and motivation, you can manage one or two quick workouts, right?  That’s like one-third of an episode of your favorite show (or maybe less).

I am going to share with you, two quick workouts that require no equipment other than your body to do!

(Even though I am a certified personal trainer, please check with a physician before participating in this or any exercise program. )


Workout 1:  10 Minute Total Body Workout



Workout 2:  10 Minute Cardio Workout


Too often people get caught up in thinking that if they don’t put in at least 25-45 minutes that they are not getting an effective workout.  I say the most ineffective workout is the one that doesn’t get done.  Fitness, as we all know, is the result of all of your efforts and defined as, “the condition of being physically fit and healthy.”  If you’re pressed for time, getting in one of these ten-minute workouts will get your heart rate up, boost your metabolism, and help you develop lean muscle mass.

Whether you’re at a level of putting in 5 or 90 minutes right now is irrelevant, it’s getting your body moving and working up to a level (and habit) where it becomes a priority and a regular part of your day.

Here are examples of some of the exercises listed in this post.

    Hi, Cailee! Yes, I’m a big fan of the no excuse variety of workouts and I encourage anybody struggling with doing a longer workout to do something with maximum effort for even ten minutes whenever possible. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

    I heart you. I’m on an inpatient rotation right now that’s basically 12 to 13-hour shifts each day, so…I reallyyyy need quick workouts that I can do just anywhere! <3
