Making a commitment to getting fit doesn’t have to overwhelm your daily schedule.
Instead of spending hours in the gym dedicating individual workouts to each and every muscle group, pump up the intensity and push your whole body to the max with targeted circuit training. Equinox Master Instructor Gerren Liles, N.A.S.M-C.P.T, designed the 30 Minutes to More Muscle program to give busy people the super-effective challenge they need to help establish a new level of strength.

For four weeks, you’ll exercise for 30 minutes, three days a week. The circuit-based routines are designed to help busy guys optimize the time they get in the gym (or at home). The workout stacks up simple yet effective movements at a rapid-fire pace to burn fat, build muscle, and chisel you into a fitter, stronger version of yourself.
