5 – 10 Minute Home Work Out with Andy Murphy
Local fitness expert and Urban Gym founder Andy Murphy has put together a short 5 minute workout routine that you can do from the comfort of your own home, with no extra equipment necessary.
We have devised a couple of workouts for people who maybe can’t find the time to get to a gym or find it difficult because of their busy family or work lifestyle.
Not everyone can afford 30+ minutes to work out or hit the gym 3-5 times per week… Are you short on time but want to increase your fitness level ? Or do you just ﬁnd it difﬁcult to create a workout habit due to a busy schedule? A 5 to 10-minute full-body workout is a good way to do something good for yourself and experience health beneﬁts at the same time. ….And remember the only bad workout is the one you didn’t do
Benefits of a 5 – 10 Minute Workout:
- Improves cardio respiratory fitness
- Activates all major muscle groups
- Elevates your heart rate and helps burn more calories
- Boosts brain function
How to do the Workout:

This workout is all based around your body weight and can be modiﬁed to suit your fitness level……
