20 minute in-home workout

TAMPA - Fit Fridays are moving right along!  Every Friday in July we're taking action for your health, introducing you to some fitness moves you can incorporate into your existing workout or start fresh with if you're looking to jump into the workout scene! The great thing about Fit Fridays is every move we show you can be done without equipment or a gym!

Trainers from across the Bay Area have been helping us give you fitness and nutrition tips to get your body in summer shape.

The first week we did a stair workout with Kamla and Gus.  If you missed their workout, you can find it here: http://www.abcactionnews.com/dpp/money/consumer/taking_action_for_you/Fit-Fridays-Week-one
