When you have to travel or prior commitments (whether it’s your family, kids, work or friends) are making it impossible to get to the gym, it’s always great to have a simple, do-anywhere workout tucked into your back pocket. This one, from SWEAT 1000‘s Andrew Rothschild, is perfect for any space, even a smaller-than-ideal hotel room or the beach, and it will get your heart rate up — just what you need to get all those endorphins pumping and calories burning.
Do each exercise move as described, working as hard as you can and resting as indicated. If you’re looking for even more of a burn, repeat the workout from the top for just under 25 minutes of intense calorie burning.
The Do-Anywhere Workout
- 1 minute: bouncing side to side
- 1 minute: jumping jacks
Do all four exercises in a row, sticking to the time frames. Recover for one minute, then start from the top. Repeat three times. Work hard for the recoveries and use the rest to reset and refocus.
- 40 seconds: squats
- 20 seconds: squat pulses
- 20 seconds: squat jumps
- 40 seconds: reverse lunges, alternating legs
Full-Body And Core Workout
Do all three exercises in a row, sticking to the time frames. Recover for 30 seconds, then start again. Repeat three times. Once again, maximum effort will get you maximum results, so push hard during the exercises and work for those recoveries.

- 30 seconds: burpees
- 30 seconds: cross mountain climbers
