Think you need to be weight training at the gym to get a serious workout in? This lower body sweat sesh from fitness coach Beverley Cheng packs in all the intensity of a lift class — and you can do it right in your living room.

In the video from her series Body Zones, Beverley will lead you through a 30-minute muscle-building workout that targets the legs and glutes with a combination of high-repetition and resistance band movements. 

"This one's going to get sweaty, and you will definitely be feeling it the next day," says Beverley. So grab your water, a mat, and a band — and make sure to stretch afterward!
