Busy Body Workout: No Gym Required
Let me guess another New Year’s resolution of yours besides getting organized… How about exercise? Huh - how did I know? (Maybe because it is on my list every year, too.)
Scott Fay of Stamina Fitness Training, runs one of the best gyms in town - in my humble opinion. The atmosphere is happy and welcoming, I’m never in a style contest for ‘cutest workout outfit,’ and I always feel well-exercised and proud of myself as I leave the gym.
But what about on days when I just can’t swing the gym?
Scott has a lot of requests for what he calls “Busy Body” workouts that you can do at home - or in a hotel. Basically, these are exercises you can do around the hectic schedule of business, kids, trying to keep up New Year’s resolutions...and life in general.
Here’s a sample Busy Body Workout to get you going, and you’ll use your body weight - not kettle bells.
Choose your Workout - 3 Options:
1 set: 10-minute workout
2 sets: 20-minute workout
3 sets: 30-minute workout.
10 exercises, one minute each:
squats (30-second air squats/30-second squat hops)
high running knees in place
