The 10 Best Under-15-Minute YouTube Workouts



Let’s face it: Workout videos are always going to be a little bit cheesy—there’s just no getting around it. But they are so freakin’ useful on those days when you barely have time to brush your hair, let alone hit the gym. So to help you squeeze in a workout when you’re short on time, we’ve rounded up 10 of our favorite YouTube workout videos, from dance workouts to HIIT.

None of these videos will take up more than 15 minutes of your time (a few only take five minutes!) and we promise, the videos don’t rate quite as high on the cheese-factor scale as most. (Trust us—we’ve watched a lot of cheesy workout videos to create this post.) Happy sweating, friends!
