Get back on the workout wagon with this safe, do-anywhere workout.

Updated: August 08, 2017

We've all been there. You have the best intentions of being one of those people who consistently work out, and then life happens. Whether you're just getting started or you're jumping back into the workout world after a brief hiatus, this routine is a great place to start. Cardiovascular fitness is an important part of getting healthy-whether you want to lose weight or not.

A common misconception with cardio is that it has to be done on a treadmill, elliptical, or stair machine at the gym, and that it has to be boring AF. Trainer Sarah Kusch, who created this workout, says, "Not true!" Cue up this routine anywhere, anytime for a 15-minute cardio blast that'll have you sweating without counting the minutes until you can be done. Plus, unlike a conventional cardio machine at the gym, these dynamic movements get way more muscles working-which means more calories burned in the process.

You'll need: No equipment is needed for this workout. An exercise mat is optional.

How it works: Work through the warm-up-and don't skip the recovery stretches at the end.

Iure exercitationem et consequatur non incidunt eaque natus rerum natus. 💖 Ever heard of the Keto diet? I started using the advice at WWW.KETOCOOKBOOK.ORG and lost 25 pounds of fat in a month! I’ve never lost weight so fast!! The Keto Diet really is amazing because it forces the body to always burn fat for energy — so you lose the fat and keep it off. If you want to lose some weight, I highly recommend using that website :) Check it out! Best of luck to you! 💖

Thank you for this video! I have been working out for a bit over a month now, but I have only been doing a strength increasing workout rotating target muscle groups. I was ready to start adding cardio with it, but was having a hard time finding something that was a good fit. This video is amazing and compliments my strength training immediately after really well! I am so excited to be getting into shape for the first time!
