15 Minute Kick Starter Work Out

We talk to so many people who really want to get into a health and fitness routine, but just have no idea where to start. There is so much information out there that it’s confusing. They overthink it and then don’t do anything because it becomes too overwhelming.

If you’re one of those people you’re in luck. We’ve created 3 – 15-minute kick starter workouts that you can begin tomorrow. You don’t need a lot of time or equipment. No more overthinking and stressing out over what to do, when to do it, and how. We’ve laid it out for you. We’ve made it simple.

Don’t be fooled into thinking that
the workout will be easy.
It won’t – but it’s quick and effective.


Expect your energy levels to go up, your heart to race, your stress to become more manageable, and you’ll feel happier and healthier.

What are we waiting for? Let’s get started!

*note that this program is for people that do not have any injuries or pain and have been cleared for exercise by their doctor.

Each work out is designed to take 15 minutes. You should warm up prior to each work out with a 5-minute jog.

Work Out One

30 x glute bridges

• Don’t rest at the bottom, just bring your butt close to the ground and then squeeze again as you go back up.

• Shoulder blades down so that you’re engaging your lats (under your shoulder outside of your back)
• Squeeze your abs and push straight up. Don’t arch your back at the top.
• Come on back down until your nose can touch the ground.
• If your nose cannot touch the ground that’s okay. Work at it every time you do pushups.
• If you struggle with these or feel them in your back at all then move down to your knees but the form is the same. Keeping your shoulders hips and knees all in a straight line.

1-minute plank

• Planks can be done straight arm or bent elbow. If you have issues with your wrist you may choose to go on bent arm as it’s a lot easier on them.

• Try not to move your hips up and down as you cycle your legs in and out
• Remember to breathe.

Put your clothes beside your bed to maximize your time. You’ll find your day will become easier to navigate once you get into this routine.
