    When it comes to workout envy, there is perhaps no one our eyes turn greener for than the ultra-fit chick at our gym who effortlessly clocks in miles upon miles on the treadmill, all with a smile on her face. Personally, we find the treadmill just about as exciting as a teeth cleaning or arguing about The Newsroom. Don’t get us wrong – we’re all for the fitness benefits of the run, but, no matter how many workout playlists we perfect, we just can’t find a way to get our butts motivated for all that monotony.

    But not for long. Mario Maietta, a personal trainer at the Equinox in Soho, has given us a workout that proves the treadmill doesn’t have to be a surefire way to be bored at the gym. He’s offering up some moves that will get you in tip-top shape, ASAP. Not only does he have your cardio workout covered, but he’s also thrown some strength training in there, so you’ll be lean and toned. Yes, basically we’ve robbed you of all your excuses for treadmill-avoidance. Now, all that’s left to do is put on your sneakers, throw your hair up, and get ready to sweat it out.
