You don’t need expensive equipment or tedious gym membershipes to get and effective workout.  Here are three great exercises you can do just about anywhere!

Exercise #1: For a cardio burst (increased heart rate while also strengthening your legs and back). Start in a squat position, arms bent in front of you, and then jump up, rotating your body 180 degrees to the right and land in a squat. Repeat, rotating to the left. Going to the right and then the left is one rep. Try 10 reps in a row.
If turning is too challenging: Do the squat jumps in place and skip the rotation.

Exercise #2: For tightening your stomach and abs.
Lie down on your back with both hands behind your head. Crunch up so your shoulders are off the ground. Cross your ankles, then lift your legs and try to touch your knees to your elbows. Lower your legs down slowly. Try 15 reps or until you can ’t do any more.
To make it less intense: Sit with your legs stretched in front of you. Bend your knees, lift your legs, then lower your legs slowly.

Exercise #3: For strong shoulders, chest, and back.
Do a pushup, but pause at the top and put your weight on your left arm, then extend your right arm out. Hold for a second, then lower yourright arm back to the floor. Repeat the pushup and raise your left arm. Alternate arms and do 10 reps for each side.
To make it easier: Do a modified pushup on your knees. Go slowly and gradually build your fitness level. If you have an injury or medical condition, talk to your doctor or a physical therapist
about designing a fitness program that’s right for you.
