The Workout

Don’t let the vacation mentality tear you away from your fitness routine. Instead, let’s get in a quick circuit before heading off for the holiday. Today's quick, but effective workout tones your abs, butt and upper body.

Muscles Targeted

  • Total body: You’ll improve your cardiovascular endurance and overall muscle tone.

What you'll need

  • An exercise mat (optional)

How to use this routine

Focus on the motions of each move and execute them with intention; maintain control and keep your core tight.

There is no warm-up or cool-down within this particular workout, so you will need to either do it independently or choose one of our warm-ups or cool-downs from the exercise library.

Workout Instructions


  • Each exercise will be done for 50 seconds with a 10-second rest/ transition between each move. Do this circuit 1 time.  
  • If you're just getting your "exercise" feet wet and are a workout novice, cut back on the duration and double the workout. Each exercise will be done for 25 seconds with a 10-second rest/ transition between each move. Do this circuit 2 times.  
  • You can download "Seconds Pro," an interval timer app that takes the mental math out of your timed workouts and allows you to fully focus on your form.

Cheers to a healthy lifestyle and living FULLforLife!
