NO TIME? Well, that is the #1 reason (or excuse) for those who say they can’t fit exercise into their busy lives.  Recent studies have shown that lengthy exercise is not necessary to lose weight and stay healthy.  Quick and effective workouts are all the rage nowadays.

There’s no doubt, we’re busier than ever, but now there’s no excuse because anyone can fit a 20-minute workout into their day without even leaving their home.  Keep in mind, it’s important that your shorter workouts pack a punch to make the most of your time.

The following 3 workouts are short, intense, and effective. All are about 20 minutes, and most can be modified for every fitness level.  Just remember, SOMETHING is better than NOTHING, even 1-minute.  Even if you just start one of these DVDS, you’re headed in the right direction.
