Columbus, we know you love fitness! Whether it’s yoga in the park or bicycling down a trail, the capital city is a great place to get healthy. As we approach fall and back-to-school, we wanted to give you a workout that could be done in 11 minutes at anytime and anywhere you have the space and inclination. So we met up with personal trainer Charles Gibson, owner of Charles Gibson Fitness LLC who also does group classes and Thai massage, and asked him to make a workout specifically for Columbus—the 6-1-4 workout!

Do these moves anytime to get at least 11 minutes of cardio that will work your heart and your muscles. Always check with a doctor before you start any workout.
