Instead of just hoofing it in the park, try mixing up your routine with this total-body workout from Darren Taylor, co-owner of Boot Camp Fitness in Brooklyn.



The Workout
0:00-2:00 Walk briskly, taking long strides and swinging your arms in an exaggerated fashion.
2:00-3:00 Stop at a bench (or a roomy spot) and stretch your legs, arms, and back.
3:00-5:00 Do 20 jumping jacks, then jog for 20 seconds, bringing knees as high as you can. Repeat sequence 3 times.
5:00-6:00 Do 15 push-ups (modified or full).
6:00-7:00 Do triceps dips off a bench or step (as many as you can).
7:00-8:00 Lunge forward with right foot, hold for a few seconds, and return to start. Do 10 lunges, alternating sides.
8:00-9:00 Do 20 seconds of each: running in place, mountain climbers (in push-up position, alternate bringing left and right knee up toward chest), running in place again.
9:00-10:00 Squat 15 times, then run in place for 20 seconds.
10:00-11:00 Do 20 lunges (alternating legs each time).
11:00-12:00 Finish with 20 crunches.
