If you’ve got five minutes – just five – you can build the fitness habit. Five minutes – first thing in the morning, on your lunch break, or while the kids play in the living room. Once you’ve got five minutes a day down, you can build from there. Combine some of these workouts or add in a bit of walking or jogging. Before you know it, the fitness habit will have become a natural part of your day – no gym required. Try one of these 5-minute workouts to tone one of your problem areas — today!

If you’ve recently (re)committed yourself to getting fit, your motivation has probably taken a few hits. It rises and falls with our moods, our energy, and our ambition. Fitness is a commitment, and since it tends to be one we only make to ourselves, it’s easy to let it slip. Start here. Start small so that saying “no” seems absolutely ridiculous. Start small so that you don’t over-do it and dread the next workout. Start with just five minutes a day.
