Five fitness quick fixes for busy people who want a beach body

Exercising for just seven minutes a day can help improve your fitness levels

Summer’s here so if (like us) your fitness plan sort of went out the window months ago, you need a quick fix. These apps, websites and You Tube channels give you absolutely no reason to skip an exercise session again.

1 The Seven-Minute Workout Challenge app 

You’ll find it tricky to find a “I just don’t have the time” excuse for the seven-minute workout app.  It claims that the 12 exercises – that only take a total of seven minutes – are equivalent to doing an hour’s workout. The idea is that you get very little rest in between each one and it says it can transform your body if you do it every day.

2 Video portal Fitness Blender

Fitness blender is all about fitness being free and accessible for everyone. It’s an online community too so if you need some encouragement there are plenty of people in the same position as you to speak to.

3 Blogilates YouTube channel

Creater of Blogilates Cassey Ho is a fitness instructor and the brains behind POP Pilates too. There are tons of quick, easy to follow workouts on her channel, and each is done to music to make it a bit more fun (although you may want to mute her).

4 The 10 Daily Exercises app  

This app is perfect for someone who doesn’t do a lot of exercise at the moment and just needs to get started. Ten Daily Exercises contains the common exercises that you’ve definitely heard of and just about anyone can do. Think jumping jacks, bench dips and squats. Once you’ve got to grips with them, there are a number of difficulty levels to choose from.

5 High intensity interval training from TheDailyHIIT

Good for those who get bored without variety, you can subscribe to a daily exercise video with The Daily Hiit which can help keep you motivated. The workouts are a bit more hardcore for people who really want to push themselves.
