It’s the middle of the summer and if you’re wrapping up your summer vacations this month before you head back to school, you can complete these workouts anywhere. They require very little equipment and many can be done almost anywhere, even outside on the beach.  
 
Many of these are designed to be completed in less than 30 minutes so you can work up a sweat and feel good about those vacation calories. Many can be scaled up or down based on what’s available on your trip. You can even include your kids or significant other for a little sweat session.
