Hustle Workout

I’m a big believer in finding a way to workout no matter the challenges.

Stuck at home due to gym closures or bad weather? No problem! Check out our Couch Workout. Kids running around while you work out? Try incorporating the chaos around you, like this!

If having limited time seems like an obstacle to exercise, I’ve got you covered! Here is a fast 15 minute Hustle Workout for y’all from a recent FB Live session we did this past Spring! (The time includes the warmup.) This is the sort of workout we do before travel, or when we don’t have a lot of time but still want to get a sweat on and our hearts pumping!

If you have just 15 minutes you can fit in a great workout. In fact, HIIT (high intensity interval training) has become more popular lately. HIIT involves short bursts of intense exercise alternated with low-intensity recovery periods. It is a really time-efficient way to exercise (typically ranging from 10-30 minutes), and offers awesome health benefits* like:

  • Burning a lot of calories in a short amount of time
  • Increasing metabolic rate for hours after exercise
  • Aiding in losing fat and gaining muscle
  • Improving oxygen consumption
  • Helps in reducing heart rate and blood pressure and blood sugar

We hope you enjoy our version of a HIIT workout. You can modify the moves and do a lower-impact version (watch Adam). The crucial part is to keep moving. It is important to be aware of your form (mirrors help!) so you don’t injure yourself. Grab a workout buddy, add music, and forget your worries for a few minutes while you focus on your body.

Oh, and I hope you enjoy a couple cameo appearances by my family members, as well as a sweet wipeout (leading people and talking through a workout is harder than you think!).

Have fun with this!
