30 Minute Workout: Timed Power Intervals

It is pretty grim in Southern Ontario.

Yes, the weather is unseasonably warm, but there is nary a ray of sun to be found.  It is very easy to get a case of  I-just-want-to-stay-under-the-covers-all-day syndrome.

It is tough to stay motivated to exercise in the darker months, but you know that once you get up and get moving, you will instantly have more energy.

The workout today is going to help you get there.  It will get your heart pumping and boost your mood.  You are going to be so happy that you gave it a try. ;)

Note:  Please check with you doc before you begin/change your fitness program.
