We love a great, quick workout. It can be an excellent way to start your day. A brief 10-20 minute workout can increase body awareness, kick-start metabolism and help you feel energized for the day to come. A quick Barre or Pilates session is a great option if you want to roll straight from you workout onto a zoom call without breaking a sweat.
If you struggle to workout in the morning it can also help to get right into these without even changing out of PJ's. These workouts are apartment friendly and require little to no equipment. If you want some new gear to mix up your routine, check out our blog on affordable, apartment-friendly workout equipment.
