A Bodyweight Workout in 20 Minutes With Courtney Belcastro
  • March 12, 2018
  • If there’s one thing we know, it’s that you don’t need to work out for hours on end to work up a total body sweat and feel like you accomplished something in your day. If you have 20 minutes to clear a space around you and throw on some workout shoes, you can watch this 20-minute interval workout and feel immediately stronger.

    Courtney Belcastro, you’ll see, has a way of motivating you through the screen in a way you wouldn’t think imaginable. After her total body warm-up, you’ll take on two sets of bodyweight exercises designed to have you working your hardest right away, from start to finish. This video even incorporates a cool-down so you’ll have time to recover your breath and your muscles before taking on whatever’s next in your day.

    You’re not only one workout away from a good mood, you’re just 20 minutes away from it. Roll out a mat or just clear some space and get ready to work out with Courtney Belcastro in this Fast Feet workout. You can also find this workout as part of the #FastFeetChi challenge on the SweatWorking app, or individually on the app as part of Coach Courtney’s library of workouts.
