Sometimes, less is more. If you're trying to get into shape, punishing your body to its limits at the gym is unlikely to produce the results you crave; especially in the long term. Instead, try starting off with a daily, low-intensity workout that you will actually stick to.
Here's a 7-minute, science-backed fitness routine that you should be able to manage regardless of your fitness level. Best of all, you can do it anywhere and don't need any equipment.
The infographic below comes from exercise physiologist Chris Jordan. The routine is based on interval training which combines aerobics and cardio. As mentioned, it can be done at home and doesn't require equipment or high levels of flexibility.
Jordan also has an app available for this routine which you can download here.
