Depends on What Equipment You Have. I have a lateral thigh trainer, which I saw on one of those cheesy infomercials. The thigh trainer is a small, portable stepper that glides from side to side as if you were rollerblading. It provides an excellent cardio workout at home, and it was reasonably priced. You might have some similar equipment. If not, try dancing to your favorite music, running in place, or doing jumping jacks. Or, if you have the room, use a jump rope. (Just be careful you don't knock anything over with it!)
Home workouts. I'm a big dance-when-the-music-moves-me fan so that's what I do the most at home. Also, living in an apartment, space is limited, which makes home workouts limited. However, I can do push-ups! If I had a little more space I'd use a mini trampoline - a very fun way to exercise.
Jump Rope . I am a mother and sometimes, due to my daughter's situations, I can't make it to the club for my usual, standard workout. Well, that doesn't stop me because I use my handy, good, old-fashion jump rope. 20 minutes of jump rope is a great cardio workout.
I remember in my teens while educating myself on the best way to workout I picked up a YMCA physical fitness booklet. In the booklet, the YMCA describe jump rope as one of the best cardio workouts.
You can do cross-overs, side-to-sides, slow skipping -- it's endless.
Try skipping rope to music. Time goes by fast and you will be sweating in no time.
Try a mini trampoline. I have one and I use it a lot. You can do all your cardio moves on it with very low impact. Do it while you watch the news or something. I also like to use videos. Try checking them out from your local library so you can find something that you like and you won't have to be bored using the same ones over again.
I have a little stair stepper I do to music on the TV or else while watching TV shows that have been recorded. ALSO, FIT TV channel on Direct TV has great exercise shows (All Star Workouts) all day long. So when the weather is bad, or I can't leave for other reasons, the TV and stair stepper work for me.
The 15 minute workout is a great all around program & you can fit it into a busy schedule..it will give you a great boost and improve your total fitness level. Here it is..be warned...it will kick your butt.
