If you want to get fit without hitting the gym, there are great exercises that only require a resistance band and a small space. Mandy DiMarzo, creator of the Burn Fitness Workout, shows 5 moves to help you get in shape and can be done in 30 seconds each.

HOUSTON – If you’re looking for cardio exercises that require little to no setup, fitness guru Mandy DiMarzo shows you an easy workout for all fitness levels.

“This is a workout that does not require a lot of fancy equipment. You can do it anywhere; you can take it anywhere. All you need is a resistance band and a small space,” said DiMarzo, a true athletic powerhouse who created BURN, a challenging 45- minute high-intensity interval training-style workout that strengthens, sculpts, and leans out your entire body.

“BURN isn’t about a number of repetitions, but rather doing as many as you can for 30 seconds and going right to the next exercise to keep elevated heart rate,” she said.

“Even if you don’t have a resistance band you can still do all the moves using just your body and you’ll still experience a challenging workout that leaves you feeling accomplished and stronger at the end,” she said.
