One of the biggest obstacles to exercising for anyone is the belief that you need a gym membership, lots of spare time, and special equipment. Not true, says Los Angeles–based fitness coach Sam Page — who trains rock star Florence Welch of Florence + the Machine and the top talent of the ABC reality show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Page, a former model and actor who is also HIV-positive, offers up new moves that you can do in your home when you have five minutes to spare.

Kettlebell Shoulder Swing

1. Squat holding a kettlebell in both hands between your legs with your arms straight.

2. Thrust your hips forward and swing  the kettlebell out and up to just above shoulder height with your arms straight. Allow the kettlebell to fall forward and guide it back down along the same path.

Do 12-15 reps.
