5 Easy Ways to Get in Shape Before Summer

by Jessica Smith, REDBOOK

What's your current excuse for not working out? Whatever it is, we've got a workout for you (just in time for swimsuit season):

1. I get bored easily.
Mix it up and kick, play or dance yourself into shape with one of these
fun fitness routines.

2. I don't want to be an athlete - why do I have to train like one?
You don't. Train for life with this
'real world' workout instead.

3. I hate going to the gym.
Try this ballet-based workout
at home from "Dancing with the Stars" pro Lacey Schwimmer.

4. I like to stay stimulated, working out is so mindless.
Challenge your body, and your brain, with this
smart workout.

5. I just never have time.
Work out in the time you have with these
15-, 30- and 45-minute routines.
