One Home Essential, 10-Min Workout: Tone Your Entire Body Using Just...A Towel

If like me, you've also spent all of winter huddled under a blanket drinking hot chocolate, I am not going to judge you. Because, well, same here. But, we boh know, we will have to throw off that blanket and we'll have to get our butts moving again. I am not asking you to hit the gym straightaway. When time is of the essence (and when isn’t it?), skip the gym and head to your linen closet. You only need a thick towel, a little creativity, and a smooth floor for an effective total body workout.

Shall we get started?
