Ladies and gents, let’s kick fitness into first gear! Like most of you, I’m a busy parent. I have two kids and work full time so trying to fit workouts into the day can be really challenging. What’s even more frustrating is getting to the gym — yay for the motivation to get there! — but then I end up doing the same old workout because I don’t know what new exercises to do.

Today’s post solves this problem! Whether you like working out at the gym or like the ease of at-home sessions, these 5 focused exercise circuits tone arms, abs, legs, back, and buns. Try a different one each day of the week or try a new one whenever you want to change up your normal routine.
