Screen time has become a dominant force in our lives, with alarming consequences.

Recent statistics reveal that children aged 8-18 spend an average of 7.5 hours a day indulging in screen-based entertainment, equating to a staggering 114 full days per year.

It's time we confront the detrimental effects of excessive screen time and dispel the notion that excuses like working out and the obesity epidemic hold any merit.

With a sedentary lifestyle fueled by screen time, physical activity takes a backseat. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends at least 60 minutes of exercise for children each day, yet screen time often occupies that potential lean time. By clicking on the Screen Time vs. Lean Time infographic, we witness the vast amount of hours wasted on screens and the lost opportunities for physical engagement.

15 Minutes per day will extend your life

Research published in the European Heart Journal highlights the life-saving potential of just 15 minutes of vigorous physical activity. By analyzing a large dataset of over 72,000 individuals, the study found that those who engaged in at least 10 minutes of intense exercise experienced a 50% reduction in the risk of premature death. Astonishingly, those who reached the recommended 60 minutes or more saw their risk plummet to just 1%. We have the power to enhance our longevity and well-being through a mere 15 minutes of dedicated exercise each day.

15 Minutes per day can get you ripped

Contrary to popular belief, you don't need to spend hours in the gym to build a strong and toned physique. The European Journal of Applied Physiology reveals that a concise 15-minute resistance training session can boost your resting energy expenditure for up to 72 hours after exercise, matching the effectiveness of lengthier workouts. In other words, investing just 15 minutes of your day can accelerate fat loss and muscle development beyond your expectations.

No more excuses!

The argument is clear: we all possess 15 minutes within our daily routines to prioritize our physical well-being. By acknowledging the detrimental impact of excessive screen time and reclaiming those precious minutes for exercise, we can transform our health and defy the sedentary norm. Let's break free from the chains of excuses and embrace the profound benefits that come from dedicating a mere quarter of an hour to our fitness.

Screen time may be ubiquitous, but we hold the power to change our habits. By reducing excessive screen usage and embracing just 15 minutes of daily exercise, we can enhance our physical fitness, longevity, and overall well-being. Let's embark on this transformative journey, knowing that dieting and nutritional choices are separate yet equally vital components to attain a holistic approach to a healthy lifestyle. The time for action is now, and the rewards are within reach.

As someone who is a certified trainer and weight trains every morning, I am proof that just 15 minutes, especially if combined with supersets, is more than enough to get in a great workout and to maintain a top level of fitness while also building health habits and even extending your life expectancy.


Pick one body part per day to exercise, along with one leg exercise. An easy 3 sets of 10, and one leg exercise is easily done in 15 minutes, especially if you are very mindful of breaks and utilize a superset in between. Take this workout for example that I do for triceps. Essentially, after the first set of rope pull downs are completed, my arms are burning and I allow them to rest while doing my sit ups. Instead of waiting to rest, I'm using it to exercise a different muscle group.

  1. Tricep rope pull downs + situps 20 + 10 x 3
  2. Skullcrushers + close grip bench press 10 + 10 x 3
  3. Dips 3x10
  4. Leg Extensions 3x10

For 15 minutes to be maximized, be mindful of rest time and side chatter and to maximize your workout wear headphones, dress to impress, blast some hip-hop which you can also find by checking out the JRZY playlists.
