Easy Workout & Metabolism Booster


As a personal trainer, I run into middle-aged women all the time at the gym who thought they would never be regular exercisers. Now they are—and they started with an easy workout like this one.

In just 5 minutes you can boost your metabolism with this beach towel workout.

Hopefully you’ve allowed yourself some moments of backyard lounging this summer. Taking in a bit of nature under the shade of a tree with a glass of iced tea does wonders for the mind and soul. Sometimes, if I feel like it, I add to my lounging an easy workout that does wonders for my body, too!

As a personal trainer, I run into middle-aged women all the time at the gym who thought they would never be regular exercisers. They tell me that the thought of exercising 2-3 hours a week seemed like a herculean task. But sorely out of shape and developing aches and pains, they decided they’d better try. Some started with 10 minutes of yoga a day. Some committed to walking with a friend twice a week. The point is, they started somewhere, and they started small. In time, and motivated by how good it felt, they added 20 minutes here and 20 minutes there.

Easy Workout & Metabolism Booster

An example of starting small would be the exercises in this easy workout—the Backyard Metabolism Boost. You can do it in the privacy of your home or on a towel in your backyard. Why not make that glass of iced tea your reward?

I promise that completing this quick round of exercises will leave you with a sense of accomplishment that you will want to build upon.

Enjoy your health!
