Fitness Without Equipment

By using your own body weight as resistance and allowing only 30 seconds of rest between each exercise, you'll get your heart rate up and tone your body all in 30 minutes. If you are looking for great results, perform this no-equipment work out three times a week for three weeks.  We recommend that you increase the intensity (the number of repetitions in each one-minute timeframe) each week. In addition, two days a week, you will need to spend 30 minutes doing cardio or yoga.  You should start feeling stronger, have more energy and notice your clothes feeling looser in just a few short weeks.
