Workouts to do at home:

Even if you do not have access to a gym, there are plenty of other options for in-home and outdoor workouts.

One of my favorite options is the Xiser mini stepper machine. It folds to a flat 4-inch piece of metal to fit in your backpack, carry-on, under the desk, etc. The way the hydraulic system is made in Xiser products is totally different from other  steppers. When you step on a pedal, the fluid goes from the cylinder on that side to the cylinder on the other side and vice versa. So, nothing will stop you from doing a perfect hill running or sprint cardio workout.

Interval training workout:   Ignore his claim that you will lose 10 pounds in 1 week. Not true. But I enjoy doing his interval workout because I can just follow along! You can adapt this to walking, running, any piece of cardio equipment.
