At Home Workout Roundup

This time of year gets so busy! And we all start to fall off the workout wagon a little bit as we adjust to weather, timing, holiday parties and everything else. But working out is still important, and is a huge help in battling stress. It's something that I still consider a necessity even if time is short. So today I'm sharing a round up of so many different at home workouts that you can try even if you feel like you don't have time to do a workout. All you need is a half hour or less!

First though, Anything on my Aaptiv app! Seriously, they have everything! You can pick from any kind of workout, length of workout, level of workout etc. They make it so easy and the trainers are so amazing.  You can filter the workouts down by time so you know you'll be able to find one that fits in the amount of time you actually have to work out and not have to cut it short.  I can't say enough good things about Aaptiv! Check them out HERE.

If you're someone who likes their gym equipment and have access to equipment easily here are some great options for all kinds of workouts that include gym equipment:
