Quotes (Tweetables): 

“To start I recommend 15 minutes, and so that 15 minutes is broken up into 5 minutes of cardiovascular, which would be marching in place, jogging in place, jumping jacks, squat jumps, jump rope, anything that gets your heart rate moving. The middle 5 minutes would be strength training, all you need is your body….large muscle groups, an example, pushups, single side – single leg squat, dips, last 5 minutes are for core exercises plank or a crunch. End with stretching. Stretching is key..”

“Variety is key, stay consistent, schedule your exercise.”
