Uplift Studio’s super-effective at-home Snowmageddon workout


You don't always need a super-cool green studio to get your push-ups in.

You don’t always need a super-cool green studio to get your push-ups in.

As Winter Storm Juno revs up, gyms and fitness studios across the city are canceling classes faster than you can build a sidewalk snowman—and traveling more than a few blocks is barely possible (and definitely not recommended).

But if you’re stuck at home for the next 48 hours, you’re going to want to find a way to get moving.

To help, we pulled this incredibly efficient, at-home interval workout out of our archives.

Originally created for the days after Hurricane Sandy by star trainers Leanne Shear and Michelle Mason of Uplift Studios in the Flatiron, it tackles cardio and all the major muscle groups in just 15 minutes, and doesn’t require a single piece of equipment.

“All you need is a patch of floor and your own body,” says Shear. And, of course, motivation. Perhaps envision the core strength you’re going to need to hit the snowy slopes this weekend? —Lisa Elaine Held
