Okay, so it is lunchtime and since you brought lunch from home today, what in the world will you do with an hour break? An hour is a long time to eat a salad so why not squeeze a bit more into your schedule and get your workout in? If you get your workout in early, you will have less stress in finding time for fitness later in your day. As a certified trainer, I recommend going for a light workout, showering if you can, and then eating lunch at your desk. As easy as 1,2,3, you can find time for your fitness and get in your best shape!
1 Bootcamp Workout
No time for a long run in the midst of your day? Then perform 3 sets of 18 lunges, as seen in this video of yours truly, followed by 3 sets of a 1-minute plank. And if you have the time, I recommend squeezing in a 1-3 mile run after. By finding time for your workout over lunch break, you will take one step closer to achieving your goals!
2 Plyo Power
The day is beautiful and the air is clear, so slip into your workout gear and have no fear. Check out this great plyo exercise, the starburst, as I guide you to get in your best shape.

3 Short Fitness Segment
Let’s face it, every day you have a choice in who you want to be. You can choose to relax and sit eating lunch at your desk or you can choose to get in better shape by exercising.
