Benefits of Mini Workouts

100% Proven

Improve your overall health

Multiple studies have shown that accumulating exercise in short bouts of at least 10 minutes of activity over the course of the day produces similar effects on a range of health-related outcomes

Easier to fit into the day

Research has shown that accumulating physical activity throughout the day is just as effective for improving health and fitness as doing one workout, provided that an equal amount of time is devoted to each.

May improve exercise adherence

many people stop working out before they even get a chance to reap the benefits of exercise. The good news is shorter sessions throughout the day may make it easier to stick to a routine.

Boost your brain health and mood

In fact, one study found that participants who performed a 10-minute bout of brisk walking and meditation experienced improved mood, compared to an inactive control group

Can help lower blood pressure

Gaesser and his colleagues conducted a small study to compare the effects of short aerobic exercise sessions and continuous exercise on 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure.

Make it easier to exercise at higher intensities

That’s why shorter exercise sessions appeal to fitness fans of all levels. Decreasing the time allows you to exercise at higher intensities that are not easily or comfortably sustained for longer periods of time.

Reduce the stress of working out

When looked at fitness from this perspective, shortened workouts just become a part of your day rather than a stressful session at the gym.

Can help you reach your fitness goals

Plus, mini workouts are easy to schedule and more sustainable to perform and commit to long term, and they allow for more focused, intensive, and intentional exercise to occur, especially if you’re easily distracted.
