Working long hours, Travelling a lot and/or looking after your family. I understand you’re busy and don’t have time to go the gym!
Don’t worry, you can have a good workout without going to the gym and you will only need about 15 minutes, so you can actually save your time!
Here are some full body workout routines that you can try!
Level 1: Learn to do circuit workout
Level 2: Intermediate circuit workout
Level 3: A bit advanced routine, which includes explosive movement like jumping.
Lack of time is not a reason!!!
I recently talked with a over-50s triathlete and I interviewed her to get secrets of getting things done and staying healthy and active after age of 50. (Her interview is coming out soon!) She is a realtor & a running store owner who has 3 children and 3 dogs and she is about to become a grandmother….. Yes, she sounds already very busy, isn’t she? But she also trains for a triathlon race. Just amazing how she does….. She still put exercise into her lifestyle!
Tips for exercise when you don’t have much time!!!
Now you want to know how you can exercise when you have only 10 – 15 minutes.
Of course, if you have only 10-15 minutes, you don’t have time to go to the gym. That’s okay!
Gym is not only a place to do exercise. You can do exercise at home, outside, or holiday destination etc..
Tip1: Think where is convenient location to exercise – Your accessibility!
If you need to drive 30 minutes to get to the gym, that’s not great use of time. Think what things around you and where you can workout. You just need a space that you can lie down. Rather spending 30 minutes of your time just to go to the gym, you spend those time to finish your workout and you can spend extra time with your family or friends.
You just need to make the best of what you already have around you!
Tip2: Way of exercise – Don’t need to spend 1 hour for exercise.
If you don’t have time to spend 1 hour for your exercise, that okay! 80% of my workout is less than 30 minutes. So here is the key, your body will improve when you get a little bit outside of your comfort zone! So you can’t expect to get the same results that you got when you were at the beginning if you have been doing the same exercise routines over and over.
One of the key workouts to same your time is to do circuit training. Circuit training is great way to improve your cardiovascular strength as well as muscular strength and core. You just follow a number of exercises without or just taking a minimal breaks in between exercises.
Circuit trainings are the ones that you saw on the top of this page!

You can make your own circuit training to meet your goals and requirements.
Tip3: Put it in your schedule and then follow it!
First think of your day…..
Some people say morning is the best time to workout because there is less distraction. Once you start your day, many things will come up and even though you have planned your exercise later in a day, you couldn’t do it because you had other things needed to be done. That’s why I think that morning is quite consistent, just depending on if you can wake up 1 hour earlier or not!!!
If you are not a morning person, then that’s not realistic. So you want to think an alternative way to get your exercise done. Everybody is different, so finding your own way to get your exercise done is the key!
Then put it in your calendar (in your schedule). Not just make a To-Do-List and carry your gym shoes in your bag in hopes that you’ll go to the gym later on a day. Once you know when you do exercise, it’s easier to get it done!
I make more exercise videos that you can do at home or even holiday destinations (Location Independent Exercise), so you can check them out on my Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/ZenshinTV
