If you crave the rush of heart-pumping cardio but can’t stand the treadmill, you’ll love this no-equipment-required home workout.

You’ll spend the first two minutes doing a low-impact warm-up then transition into 18 minutes of fast footwork and basic boxing moves that engage your abs. Even without weights, you’ll break a sweat and exhaust multiple muscle groups. Finally, the instructor includes an active cool-down that engages your back body to balance your core and ends the workout with a soothing stretch.

The best part: You don’t even have to step foot in the gym. Squeeze this 25-minute routine into your day for twice the benefits in half the time.

To recap, you’ll do a 2-minute warm-up, followed by the workout below, and then a 6-minute cool-down.
