My days are so jam packed I have to really ROCK OUT my exercise timeframe. In 20 minutes I can do that with interval training. On my treadmill I perform 4 five minute intervals. I start on my highest incline speed at 3 to 4 mph for 2 minutes. I lower incline to 1 and jog for 2 minutes at speed of
4.5 to 6.5. I ramp up to incline of 3.5 and do a comfortable walk speed for 1 minute. Then I repeat the entire circuit for 3 more times bringing me to my 20 minutes of interval exercise.
Every other day I push my speed on the uphill portion and the flat run. My goal is speed not time. It works

I tried scheduling appts and that dont work. but what is working better is having a chart to put exercise on and have a trainer sign I did the exercise. If I do something at home I can put on it too. No fibing allowed.
The chart has type of exercise how long calories burned I even post weigh in on it oh and a spot for siguatures.
If you have cable, check the on demand menu for free exercise videos. There may be some that you want to try before you go and buy them. I know that I found bellydancing and Bollywood dance exercises. Both are free, and look like they burn a lot. They may only be available for a limited time...
but while they are available, they will definitely change up your exercise routine and calorie burn.
