Starting a workout plan has been on your to-do list for months. You see yourself working out, feel good about your commitment, and smile at the new you: you’re more lean and toned, you feel healthier than you ever have, and you have lasting energy that keeps you going all day. The only problem is that you don’t know where to start. Our Beginner’s 10-Minute Makeover incorporates every major muscle group to help you strengthen, tone, and burn fat.

Gyms can be intimidating and workouts can seem confusing, especially if they don’t prepare your entire body for the changes that are on the way. Follow this total body workout routine, start making healthy choices and your new body will soon become a reality.

    I’m 65, so these were too hard for me at this point. Wish you had something for seniors!
