No Time to Work Out, Workout

You can do this almost anytime and almost anywhere, and for as little or as much time as you have available. You don’t need anything at all except yourself and just a smidgen of discipline. If you happen to have them around, a yoga mat and an interval timer could be useful, but don’t let lack of props hold you back!
