Krissy Cela’s Home Body Workout

Sometimes it’s not possible to make it all the way to the gym but if you’ve only got a spare 20 minutes then this lower home body workout will give you everything you need without having to leave the comfort of your own home.

By the time you drive to the gym, squeeze into your cute workout gear and secure your gear in the locker room, that’s the same amount of time it would take to do half your regular workout. Those are minutes you’ll never get back and when determining the amount of impact a fitter lifestyle can eat away at your YOU time, it’s easy to want to take a day off. Fortunately, you can achieve all the results you desire, without having to devote quite as much time to the whole process. That doesn’t mean less effort needs to be squared away while you’re training, but you can save yourself valuable set up minutes by doing this any time workout at home. Use it when you’ve had one of those days, are away on business or just have just want to catch up on your favorite show while working in front of Netflix.
