Winter weather is coming—and so is the potential to pack on the calories. Blame it on the tasty snacks, hearty soups, and boredom. But how are we supposed to stay fit when we’re cooped indoors? Thanks to personal trainer Errick McAdams’ no-gym workout, we have a solution. To keep your sweat sesh indoors, just swap the sprint portion for 15 seconds of jumping rope (or jumping jacks) instead.

Warm up
30 jumping jacks
15 burpees (without push-up or jump)
Perform 3 sets.

Warm Up Part 2
20 high-knees in place.
20 butt kicks in place
Perform 2 sets.

The Workout
15-second sprint: Run as fast as you can while counting to 10 in your head. Stop running at 15.
Do 5, 10, or 15 push-ups depending on fitness level. (Regular push-ups or push-ups on your knees.)
Perform 10 sets.
