There are two main ways to get in shape: build strength and gain endurance. This core workout knocks out both in just 25 minutes.

Instructor Kelly Lee will lead you through a warm-up and a series of exercises that strengthen and train your core muscles (including the lower abs and obliques). Just because you’re giving your arms and legs a break doesn’t mean this class won’t be challenging, so bring your A game. You will need an exercise mat, one set of lighter dumbbells, and sliders for this workout. If you don’t have sliders, you can use two paper plates or hand towels. Press play to get started.

To recap: You will need an exercise mat, one set of lighter dumbbells, and sliders for this class. Each move is performed for about 30 seconds. You will repeat the workout a total of 3 times.
