We are all well aware that daily physical activity is important for our health, but sometimes we don’t always take the necessary steps to fit exercise into our busy lives. What if I told you that if you utilized just 15 minutes of down time, you could fit in a great workout? Well, it’s true! Sometimes our lives are so hectic that even thinking about carving an hour out of our day to exercise puts us in a panic. One hour usually leads to an hour and a half because of stretching, freshening up, etc. By fitting the actual workout into 15 minutes, you can be back to your routine in no time!
I’m personally the type of person that loves speedy workouts! As much as I like long runs, during the week speedy is my jam. The faster I can get it in, the faster I can get on with my other daily activities. Now, I’m lucky in that I’m allowed two 15 minute breaks during the workday and my office has a treadmill. But if that isn’t the case for you, you can always take time on your way home to stop at the gym quick, or you can even complete these workouts outside if you have a GPS watch that tells you your pace.
15 minutes. That’s the time it takes to sit through 8 commercials, drink a cup of coffee, or talk to your loved ones on the phone. That’s nothing! Moving your body daily is sooo important, which is why I want you to make your health a priority and do this for yourself! It doesn’t have to be intense, but you deserve to be healthy and happy in your own body, and exercise is proven to do that! Exercise boosts those feel good hormones so you end up feeling happier in your own skin, which is the most important!
The five treadmill workouts I’ve provided you with below are ones that you can complete in 15 minutes! That’s it! Zip. Bam. Boom. Done. You can adjust the speed or incline as needed to best suit your abilities, or you can follow them as is for some awesome workouts! All you have to do is set the speed and incline to match the plan and walk/run as stated for the allotted amount of time. Simply adjust the speed and incline as the set progresses. Make sense? If not, shoot me a comment below and I’ll explain it in more detail for you! 🙂
