30-Minute Elliptical and Treadmill Workout

Double Your Fun With Our 30-Minute, 2-Machine Cardio Workout

When you're pressed for time, you need a quick workout that will keep you engaged while maximizing your efforts — this plan is just that. It keeps you moving between two machines to prevent you from zoning out one one; because sometimes it's better to work out smarter, not longer.

In just 30 minutes at the gym, you'll have build up a serious sweat, burned a bunch of calories, and upped your endorphins. The warmup and cooldown are built into the routine, and the best part is it's all set to a killer Spotify playlist full of rock and pop to put a pep in your step.
