It’s not enough time to drive to [and through] a drive-thru and eat... and it's definitely not enough time to get through a full workout… or is it?
It’s the time between your alarm and when you actually get up, but it’s also the time it takes to get you to where you physically want to be.
INTRODUCING… (*drumroll*)… 15 MINUTE WORKOUTS!
Too good to be true? Try it! You’ve got nothing to lose, everything to gain. All we ask is a mere 15 minutes from you – think that’s do-able?
Busy, you say? That much more reason to dedicate only 15 minutes of your time. Busy is a great motivator to get something out of the way first thing in the morning before your ‘busy-ness’ actually kicks in. What we’re asking is less than 2% of your waking-day (960 minute-day scale); Think you’re worth that? Think you can contribute a little to gain a lot? Please keep this in perspective before letting the excuse of not having enough time set in.
We understand there could be an inconvenience factor, too… commuting to the gym, waking up early, etc. All of that takes time- and we ALL know how valuable time is. So what do we do when our morning starts off hectic and is consumed with preparing for the day at hand? Or when weekly errands eat away the remainder of the daylight in our evenings? It’s a dilemma we face every day, and staying active within the chaos of life seems impossible!
Here’s what we propose: Make yourself a priority. Take 15 minutes and use it toward a greater goal – a better you! We are making it simple for you: no gym required (just a pull-up bar, [a chair,] and a timer), less than 2% of your day, set your alarm a little early in the morning, and push yourself through this workout plan that anyone can do.
Let’s get moving!
L: "Hmmm… What can you NOT do in 15 minutes?"
A: "Go to the drive-thru and eat"
L: "Some would argue you can"
A: "Let them argue. That’s the point. I’m urging someone to get off the couch, start a timer, get in your car, drive to a fast food joint, order, pick it up, drive home, eat and finally, stop the timer when done eating."
L: "What if you live right next to McDonald’s?"
A: "I bet you still can’t… and if you sprint there, you just worked out. I win."
L: "Driving’s faster"
A: "Not if you live next door"
L: "Yes, I swear! It’s fast. Just make a left and another left… Duh! I promise it works!"
