For the women over 40 who just can’t get a full workout in before work or before taking care of the kids, this wake-up workout is perfect for you.

In just a few minutes time, your heart rate is up, endorphins are pumping and you will have more willpower and motivation to make healthy choices.

When we are actively taking our health seriously, each healthy choice can be a little easier. We don’t want our efforts to be in vain.

This quick wake-up workout will help get you into the routine of taking a few minutes to take care of yourself. When we put ourselves first for a few minutes, we are then better equipped to take care of everyone else.
