When it comes to getting in shape, you have a lot of options. You can run, bike, join a gym, buy a fitness video, use an app, or use a printable workout. There are any number of options depending on your age, abilities, lifestyle, fitness level, etc. It’s obvious that there is no shortage of options for anyone looking to get in shape.
One of the hardest things about fitness is taking the time needed to fit it in. While 60 minutes of exercise a day would be a super healthy option, some of us just can’t do it. So we don’t. But even 5 minutes of exercise is better than none, and the workout below is something you can do daily in just a few moments a day. Each exercise is only five reps, and it works the whole body. If you have the time and ability to do more than one set, go ahead. Or do one set multiple times per day. Or, just do a single set each day. Just get moving!
