Get Fit Outdoors -- in 30 Minutes

To get fast results, take your workout outside. A study from California Pacific Orthopedic and Sports Medicine found that outdoor exercisers lost an average of 7.43 pounds and 6.17 percent of body fat in eight weeks. That's because outdoors, your body is constantly challenged by inclines, declines, and obstacles, explains Tina Vindum, founder of Outdoor Action Fitness, an outdoor-fitness instruction program in Marin County, California. You'll also improve your mood and boost self-esteem, according to recent research from the University of Essex in England.

Rev up your usual routine by doing this 30-minute workout, developed by Vindum. Try it in your backyard or at a local park -- you'll burn at least 260 calories while firming up all over. Before you get started, make sure to warm up with at least five minutes of power walking or light jogging.
