It’s been a year since I’ve joined the gym and started working out on a regular basis. I love going to group classes but there are some days where I can’t make it to the gym or don’t have a full hour to exercise. But I still know that it’s important to get the exercise in. On those days, a quick at home workouts can do the trick to make sure I still get my sweat on without wasting time.
These are my 6 of my favourite quick at home workouts.
At Home Workouts to Try When You Don’t Have Time for the Gym
1. Booty Boot Camp With Jeanette Jenkins
This 10-minute workout is really affective and will have you out of breath, for real! Do it twice in a row and you won’t even realize that you’ve skipped going to the gym.
2. 30 Day Shred
I love this workout DVD from Jillian Michaels. It has three different 20 minute workouts and they do make you sweat! The DVD only costs $7.99 and it’s a great one to have have in your exercise collection.
3. Moms Into Fitness – Boot Camp 2
This is another DVD that I have in my at-home workout collection. I actually used it while I was pregnant and after. It’s not as intense as the first two but it still gives you a good workout. A bonus is that you can mix and match all the different workouts so it’s different every time. And you can workout for just 10 minutes or 30 minutes, you decide.
4. 15 Minute At-Home Workouts
These two 15-minute workouts, that my friend Reg, who’s a kinesiologist and personal trainer, put together. These two at home workouts are quick, effective and will have you sweating, I promise!
5. Ten Minute Boot Camp
This is another awesome workout from Jeanette Jenkins that’s quick but really gets your heart rate up! If you need a good workout but don’t want to go to the gym, this is one to try.
6. 10 Minute Trainer
Here is another great workout DVD. It’s five workouts for different parts of your body and each one is ten minutes long. It’s by Tony Horton who is a personal trainer to the stars. All you need for this is a mat and yourself.
Those are some of my favourite at home workouts when I don’t have time to go to the gym. How do you make time for exercise?

Thank you so much for posting these links! I don’t have an hour everyday but I sure can carve out two 10-minute intervals for the the 10 minute boot camps.
Ten minute intervals is a lot more doable for many people than a long chunk of time.Thanks for your comment.
I don’t have time to workout because I’m always blogging or promoting my blog, even in the house
Great collection of workouts, Salma! I also think this is a good list for people who are intimidated by the gym (like me!) – it’s a way to ease your way into it at home while no one is watching. I also love the fact that the Jeanette Jenkins YouTube videos have the 10 minute timer that counts down! That would definitely be a motivator for me.
I totally agree Jennifer! And 10 minutes is a good place for anyone to start.
Okay, so I do try to exercise regularly. On the occasions when I do, I cannot remember smiling nearly as much as the folks on those DVDs! I mean, seriously, if you are working out and sweating how is possible to look so happy!!!!!!
😉 (thanks for sharing, Salma!)
Lol, I definitely don’t smile like they do Anna. I do sweat a lot though 😉
These are some really great ideas for working out at home when you do not have time to go to the gym 😉 Thanks for sharing!
Glad you found them helpful Joan 🙂
These are great. Many people just do not have the time to go to the gym. With technology we surely have no excuse of finding alternatives. Thanks for sharing.
Anytime Nate. Thanks for stopping by 🙂
What a great choice of workouts! I love the shorter ones. They don’t seem so daunting. I’ve done a lot of the Beachbody workouts. They’re pretty good. Thanks for sharing your regime with us, Salma!
The beach body workouts are quite effective Jeanne. Glad you liked the list of exercises.
Thanks for this! I find it SO hard to find time to get exercise in, but these are great ideas. Anyone can find 10 min or 20 min to get a quick workout in. I’m going to try the Shred and see how it goes.
What a great round up of at home workouts! Perfect for those days when I’m short on time. Thanks for including ours ❤️
