Three Quick At Home Winter Workouts

Winter months can be tough to fit in workouts, especially during the holidays.  You don't need a gym membership, you don't need a home gym and you don't even need a video.  All you need is 10-15 minutes (or more if you have it) and some motivation!



Remember, ten minutes is better than nothing if you are short on time.  December I am often so busy, I may do ten minutes in the morning, ten mid-afternoon for a pick me up and ten in the evening while watching TV.  Because I like to do full-body workouts and make sure I am strengthening different muscles each day, I switch up what I do.  Here are a few workouts I love:
