Eleven minutes is all you need to make a difference!

Experts say find something that you enjoy doing because doing what truly makes you happy is the key to crafting a workout routine that seems less like work, and more like fun.

Other tips include getting a workout buddy, use an app, keeping your goals realistic and telling others about your goals to hold yourself accountable.
