Have you ever tried to lose weight permanently before, and failed?

You would love to go to your local gym but can’t afford
the expensive gym membership or you’re just uncomfortable
exercising in front of other people?

Ever thought about using your own body to get the
real body you want?  It is possible…

A bodyweight cardio fat burning workout is ideal for you.
You don’t need any equipment and you can still workout
if you’re working away or on holiday.

Craig Ballantyne developed a revolutionary new fat loss system
called Turbulence Training”, specifically designed to
help busy men and women such as students, executives and
parents with young children to get the most results in the least
amount of time.

Craig is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS),
and author of many articles in magazines such as Men’s Health,
Men’s Fitness, Oxygen, Maximum Fitness, and Muscle and Fitness Hers. 

Now over to an article from bodyweight exercise expert,
Craig Ballantyne.

You’re surrounded by nothing. Stuck in a house or hotel, miles from
the  furthest gym. 

Perhaps visiting the in-laws, or a seminar in Independence, Ohio
(trust me, I’ve been there), but you still want to do a fat burning

You can’t even go for a walk because its a) raining, b) snowing, c)
there are no sidewalks (hello Independence, Ohio). 

So what can you do?

A bodyweight cardio fat burning workout to the rescue. Some other
trainers might call it metabolic conditioning, and sure, you can do
similar workouts with kettlebells or even dumbbells, but those
implements can’t help you now because you are stuck in the middle
of nowhere with now way out. 

The only “equipment” you have is your own body, but all they taught
you in gym class was how to do crunches, pushups, and flexed arm
hangs. And you aren’t doing that from the doorframe here in the

Fortunately, I’ve spent my entire adult life researching wild
workouts, exotic exercises, and bodyweight movements. My bodyweight
exercise obsession all started back in college, when I came home
for a Christmas break in my freshman year, and had no ride to the
gym, or even the money to afford a day pass. 

So instead, I went through all of my old issues of Men’s Health
magazine and put together a list of every body weight exercise I
could find. Eventually, I stumbled across a workout that wasn’t
full of crunches, situps, and plain old pushups. I somehow managed,
at the age of 19, to figure out a bodyweight circuit that was
tough, worked the entire body, and didn’t require equipment. 

Fast forward fifteen years later, and I’m still on the hunt for
more bodyweight workouts. You’ve probably used one of my bodyweight
challenges from Men’s Health magazine, or found one of my workout
videos on youtube. 

This fat burning workout video below is probably my most famous,
the no-equipment 5 rounds of 5 minutes bodyweight workout program.

You don’t need anything – other than your own bodyweight – to get
an amazing full body workout, anytime, anywhere. 

You don’t need to be outside to do this bodyweight cardio fat
burning workout, but hey, it doesn’t hurt to be out in the
sunshine, getting a glorious sweat on with this intense bodyweight

A minute of bodyweight exercises doesn’t sound like much, but
seriously, when you get down to the brass tacks, it sure is a heck
of a challenge. I’d love to know what you think of this workout and
other ones like it. I have dozens of interval-type workouts that
don’t require you to sit on a stationary bike or use a treadmill.

And you absolutely have no need to ever suffer the ‘dishonor’ of
slow boring cardio ever again. 

Thanks to bodyweight exercises (plus kettlebells, dumbbells, TRX
exercises, etc.), there are far too many fun workouts out there
that can help you burn fat without the need for expensive,
overcrowded gym memberships.

That said, you can also do a tremendous workout in a hotel room
(even in Independence, Ohio), in your in-laws living room, your
backyard, the park, or even your office (but you’ll want to shut
the door, of course). 

Bodyweight cardio fat burning workouts to the rescue.
