Are you ordering a GTL minus the G and L this summer? For those of us lucky enough to skip over the Jersey Shore phase of our young adult lives, that’s ‘Gym, Tan, Laundry’…and if you’re defaulting to the seasonal mindset of countless other like-minded people this summer, the G and L may seem far less appealing these days. But, of course, there’s always a way to fit some G-time in your schedule, even if it’s not actually at the gym! As for the laundry, you’re on your own!
We know them well — the ‘I’m just so busy, I have no time to workout,’ the ‘I come home exhausted with no energy to do anything but nap,’ or even the ‘I can’t get a workout without a gym membership, and I ain’t got funds for that!’ Okay, so maybe the last one was a little more colorful than what you would expect, but most of our excuses sound about the same: no time, no energy, and no funds. But when it comes to working out, a good routine doesn’t have to be time-consuming, expensive or exhausting – well, not too exhausting. In fact, great cardio routines get the job done in a short amount of time, leave you feeling energized, and rely on little to no equipment but still give you the efficient session you’re looking for!
