Give Your Workout a SparkStart

5-10 Minutes to Major Momentum


  • I found the idea of making exercise a daily habit first, and then increasing your duration and intensity absolutely brilliant. I always did it the other way round, and could never keep up the consistency. I'm definitely going to try this, and see how long an exercise streak I can track. Thank you again for this mind changing idea. - 10/9/2015 3:43:49 PM
  • Some of the workouts are good. I would never jog or do jumping jacks but quick marching in place would substitute. The alarm bells went off however when I saw 25 pushups. That's a bit much for a beginner who may not have done pushups. I can't do that many on a bet, and wouldn't be able to because of problems with my shoulders. Also, why 7 workouts? Doesn't anyone believe in a day of rest anymore? 6 is plenty. - 6/7/2015 6:09:16 PM

  • This is great. Some I am going to do this morning. I saved it. But the jumping jacks and a couple more I have to do later because my knee went from under me on Monday and it's not to good. - 6/6/2013 7:04:45 AM
  • I have been walking alot. My job requires alot of walking and standing. I use the walking to my advantage . I have been able for three weeks to lose 2- 3 lbs a week. I just hope I can keep it off and burn more calories. - 4/23/2013 1:35:50 AM
  • A fellow co-worker and I have decided to do stairs on our lunch break today! I'm going to try to keep it up everyday. - 10/11/2012 8:18:15 AM
    I.m just starting off and a short workout is sooo much less daunting. Good advice! - 9/17/2012 6:02:57 PM
  • I have, at one time, been all of those scenerios!!! I am starting all over again! Gonna do the 10 minute workouts and go on an exercise streak!!! - 8/6/2012 6:36:59 PM
    I believe in this 100%. I started noticing celulite, and lots of it, on my legs.( And trust me, im the most unmotivated person.) so I started running up and down the stairs, at first I could barely do one full song, but now I can do one to two full songs off my iPod. I know it doesn't sound like much. But pushing myself to work out those first 3 days made me not be able to stop. I now do that every day after work. I even started noticing a difference, as I do know that everyone's bodies are different and some migt not see results this quick, it happened for me. I've been doing it for about 6 days now, and I can definitely notice that the cellulite has gone down alot. I am going to keep doing it and eventually keep stepping up the times, it's a challenge to see how many songs you can do, and the further you get the more motivated you are. My goal by the end of this week is to be ableto do 3-4 full songs a day. Start out little guys! Trust me it works!!! - 5/14/2012 11:19:39 PM
