Many people want to start exercising to lose weight or just become healthier. The biggest problem is that most people don’t know where to start. Many are also embarrassed to go to the gym or just don’t want to spend money. Well, you can start with a very simple program that only takes 10 to 15 minutes each day and you can do it at the comfort of your own home.

In this article, I have created a simple exercise plan for beginners. It is composed of easy exercises that involve the major and minor muscle groups of the body for a complete workout. You can squeeze in this simple workout in the morning after waking up or at night when you get home from work. It is a circuit style workout (focusing on You do not have permission to view the full content of this post.
