“I do this all over the world, whether I’m in a hotel room or travelling, wherever. It combined flexibility and mindfulness with strength and metabolic benefits, it’s really complete and really effective. I can tell you, there are Academy Award winning actresses and Victoria’s Secret girls doing that all over the world as we speak,” he says.
Anyone else never been keener to exercise?
Warm up with a simple 10 minute yoga sequence. (WATCH: An easy yoga workout. Post continues after video.)
Then it's time for the circuit. Do 30 seconds of each exercise, then repeat the circuit four times before stretching.
- Push Ups
- Mountain Climbers. Tp do these, start in a push up position, drive your knees up and down as if you were running.
Alex Fergus, head coach at AF Coaching
"Though I'm frequently at the gym, I don't always like training at my place of work. As I'm spending more time on my online coaching and therefore at home a lot, I've developed a quick 20 to 30 minute body weight circuit that hits all major muscle groups, shoots up my heart rate and leaves me feeling energised instead of exhausted," he says.
Michael Bellofiore, Personal Trainer at Fitstyler
"A session like this should be done at least three times a week and because its only 30 minutes, make sure to leave nothing in the tank - push yourself!," he says.
Warm up with a quick sprint or five minute jog and stretch.
For the circuit, group three exercises that work different muscle groups together. Do each for 30 seconds and repeat the mini circuit three times before taking a short break and moving on to the next one. Once completed, cool down and stretch.
- Push ups, sit ups and a 20 metre run.
- Jump squats, shoulder press and mountain climbers.
- Reverse sit ups, burpees and a 20 metre run.
- Tricep dips, upright rows and mountain climbers.

"From my front door I do a two and a half kilometre run, stop to do exercises at the beach and then run back. It gets me out of the gym and into the fresh air which is really energising at this time of year. This workout hits every major muscle group as well. A squat for your lower body, an upper body push with the push up, upper body pull with the pull up and of course a nice and challenging core exercise with the dragon flags," he says.
