I was the girl that HATED any type of physical activity when I was younger.
I absolutely dreaded gym class. I had no athletic ability whatsoever.
As I got older, I started getting more *ahem* comfortable and eating everything in sight. I packed on the pounds.

What these workouts consisted of were equipment free HIIT-style (High Intensity Interval Training) exercises that could be done at home. Of course, you can add weight or resistance bands to up the challenge.
Though the workouts are short, they are INTENSE. And that’s what I liked. You didn’t have time to be bored, like you do on a treadmill.
I still incorporate High Intensity or HIIT workouts today in all of my workouts. I’d much rather be doing more in a short amount of time, than spending a lot of time doing ONE boring thing.
