This fun, full-body 30-minute workout is perfect for busy women that want to tone up all over.  If you’re pressed for time but want a killer workout in 30 minutes (or less) this workout is for you.

There are only 6 exercises in this workout so it’s quick but don’t be fooled… this 30-minute routine is tough.

That’s because all of the exercises in this workout are really 2 exercises combined into one move.

See what I mean?  Here are the exercises in the 30-minute workout that I’m sharing with you today.

 

 

By training this way, you’ll be able to exercise all of the major muscles throughout your body while targeting trouble areas women struggle with most.

Because all of the exercises utilize major muscle groups at once, you’ll be able to maximize calorie burn, too.

It’ll help you burn fat and feel great in 30 minutes tops.

This is my favorite 30-minute workout of all time.  Are you ready to find out why?

This is what the 30 minute workout looks like…
