Home, Office & Travel: Five Minute Workouts

Proper fitness improves cardiovascular health (your heart), boots your mental clarity, activates your metabolism, improves your mood, and even if it is only five minutes it does improve your overall fitness levels.  We’ve all been there, travelling or too busy to make it to a gym, work or family issues come up limiting your free time, but that is no reason not do a simple little work out that can continue on your path to fitness and proper health.  For those who are ashamed to hit the gym, overweight and just starting a weight loss routine, these little routines will help you get on your journey and build up confidence to continue your path to a healthy lifestyle.

We all have a spare five minutes that we could put to better use, such as reading this article right now instead of reading you could be doing a five minute work out.  The following are only a small idea to get you going, mix them up, change them, add to them, just get up and give it five minutes.  You’ve seen WOD (Work Out of the Day) or WOD’s posted around I like to call these simple Work Out Ideas (WOI) because if you get up and work out there is no right or wrong.  The only wrong in working out is Not working out.
