Hiring a trainer is expensive, going to the gym might not be your thing, and creating our own workout routine for weight loss can be daunting. That's where this program comes in: It has a balanced mix of high-intensity interval training, strength training, flexibility, and recovery time to help you burn calories and build muscle. If you want to lose weight (reminder: not a prerequisite for improving your fitness and health), this will help you do it at a healthy pace.

How it works: Follow the schedule below, or feel free to adjust it to meet your personal needs (for example, rest on Wednesdays instead of Sundays or reduce the number of weekly workouts if you're a fitness newbie). The only guideline is to perform the workouts in the same order, if possible.

What you'll need: a lightweight pair of dumbbells (5-8lbs), a medium pair of dumbbells (10-15lbs), a medicine ball, a Swiss ball, and a step, workout bench, or box.
