We've all been there: After a long day at work, you know you'll feel better if you squeeze in a sculpting session, but you have plans with friends and promised you wouldn't bail—again. Plus, doing a truly effective workout not only takes time, but it also means you'll need carry a bag that's big enough for your sneakers and other gym essentials and that you'll have to shower and get ready all over again (even more time!).
The good news: You don't have to choose between a strong, slim body and a social life! Fitness expert Jessica Smith created this quick, total-body toning routine exclusively for SHAPE readers to bust all the aforementioned excuses. You'll feel the burn from head to toe without ending up drenched in sweat, and you can do it barefoot or wearing socks—no gym bag needed. So toss a pair of shorts and a tank in your purse and hit the gym before happy hour to show up looking and feeling even more fit and fabulous than usual.
