As anyone who works in a traditional (read: office) job environment knows, finding time to fit in fitness can be a challenge. But even if you can't get to the gym, you can still keep your body strong. Everyone needs a repertoire of simple exercises they can do no matter what, says Keli Roberts, a trainer in Los Angeles and spokesperson for the American Council on Exercise. "It's easy to skip strength training if you can't get to the gym, but there are exercises you can do at home or on your lunch break," says Keli. "They work the major muscles, and you don't need machines."
You may not always have time to go to they gym, but that doesn't mean you can't stay in shape. Just 15 minutes of light exercise to your daily routine several times a week can help build muscle and strength.
