Short On Time? Need A Quick & Effective Workout?

Even when we’re motivated to really get into an exercise and workout session there are times when we just don’t ‘get the time’ for a full workout. Whether it’s work or family commitments sometimes there just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day.
