If you're blaming your love handles on this tough economy we have news for you. No more excuses, folks. You don't have to spend a dime to get a beach body.You can get a pretty good full-body workout on your own with no gym membership, no personal trainer and no equipment necessary.

This program has just six exercises and takes as little as fifteen minutes.

"Using a little creativity and objects around you in a playground or your own backyard or even sometimes inside your own living room, garage, basement you can easily get all the exercise you need and then some," said Scott Lance of Heart Adventure Fitness.

Exercises one and two are combined in the Burpee Pull up. It's a traditional pull-up combined with a squat thrust so you're working your upper body and legs.

"Pull all the way up and all the way down and drop back down."

Exercise number three is the V-Up for abs and number four are Step Ups.

"This one is working the large muscles of the upper and lower leg and keeping heart rate at high rate."

Number five are modified dips and finally number six.

"This movement's called hi, how are ya's. We're down on our bellies opposite hand and opposite leg come up."

This works your core and your lower back.

Scott says aim to do each exercise for 30 seconds.
