Thirty Minute Blitz Workout

Hello everyone!

I just left the YMCA and they had a table set up front with fresh oranges, fitness bars, bottles of water and info. One thing I grabbed was a lime green sheet with this on it.. thought I would share it as it looked like a great option for a quick at home workout. I may give it a try this weekend.

Kids might want to join in, too....! They might smoke you on the jumprope part.. maybe everyone take turns doing things.

Here it is.. see what you think:

Thirty Minute Blitz Workout
