Celebrity trainer Mike Donavanik has been featured in The Los Angeles Times, Reader’s Digest, Town & Country, Fitness, and Self, and he just launched his first fitness DVD, Extreme Burn: Total Body Interval Training. This six-week, full body program is super dynamic, jam-packed with compound strength moves and intense bursts of cardio that will fire up the metabolism. It's also highly accessible, so whether you're a fitness pro or just starting out you can challenge yourself at your own appropriate level.

That's great for evenings and weekends, but what about during your crazy work day—and at this time of year when we're busier than ever? We get so frantic with shopping and finishing work tasks before the holidays, that we tend to slack off on our workouts (and eating right). But Mike's belief is that it doesn't have to be that way.

In this great video for Gay.com, Mike shows you some simple exercises that can be done at your desk. So rather than submit to temptation and eat another treat, or grabbing that third cup of coffee because you're feeling exhausted, try one or all of these exercises. They're a natural way to perk yourself up, tone your body, and feel a heck of a lot better about yourself.
