This workout is simple and straightforward, but it will definitely make you work up a sweat—no travel time required.

The moves are designed to raise your heart rate, build strength with your own body weight, and increase your mobility with stretches, so you check off all boxes in one short workout. Plus, the instructor offers ways to make moves easier or harder, so the routine can be adjusted to suit all fitness levels. All you need is an exercise mat to get started.
