Stay Fit NOTL with Jaclyn Willms

Let’s face it, sometimes we just can’t get to the gym for a workout. Maybe you have a small one at home, or a tight schedule, or you just don’t want to deal with the hustle and bustle of a busy gym. If this is the case for you, you should consider adding circuit training to your at-home routine!

Circuit training is a great way to work out at home while building lean muscle, lose weight, get that heart rate up, and work your whole body. All you’ll need is a timer or stopwatch (you can use the one on your phone). If you’re new to exercise try 25 seconds on and 20 seconds rest before going to the next exercise. Repeat the whole circuit 3- 5 times through. If you’re looking to get sweaty and burn fat try 45 seconds of each exercise and 15 seconds rest.
