Try this winter workout from Gunnar Peterson


It’s freezing outside — we don’t blame you for wanting to curl up under the covers and do nothing. But not so fast: You can still get in a calorie-torching workout in the comfort of your living room — no spin bike or row machine necessary. Gunnar Peterson, who has whipped the Kardashians, Bruce Willis and Jennifer Lopez into shape, taught us this workout that you can do sans a gym membership. Do 12-20 reps of each exercise depending on your fitness level, unless otherwise noted, and throw in some jump-roping in between two of the moves.

When you’re done, rest — it’s crucial for your body after the hell you just put it through. If you can’t afford a massage after every workout (and who can?), Peterson recommends HoMedics’ Dual Shiatsu Massage Cushion “to relieve and reward your body.”

You can win a personal training session with Peterson at his Beverly Hills studio, plus a full collection of HoMedics Massage products, at www.sweeps.homedics.com. Enter through Dec. 26.

Peterson on excuses

We’ve already tackled the “But it’s too cold to exercise” lie. Here, he rips your other excuses to shreds.

“But I don’t have time”
“Prioritize it. Don’t just say it’s a priority and cancel it because if you cancel it then it couldn’t have been a priority. Treat it like a job interview. Would you have blown that off? You have to lock it in, and anything else that comes up, say no.”

“But I can’t afford any equipment”
“[Get] basic stuff: A couple bands, dumbbells. You don’t need a mat, you can use a towel. I would skip two dinners and buy the gym equipment because I want it bad enough. How bad do you want it?”
