Celebs—they’re just like us! Only with bigger houses (read: mansions), more pairs of Louboutins, more impressive bank accounts… okay, so maybe there are some differences. But the one thing we all have in common is that we’re fans of quick, effective workouts we can easily slot into our busy lives. Because let’s face it, nobody wants to slave away for hours in the gym each day—no matter how nice that gym may be! But while we’re doing speedy YouTube at-home workouts, the upper crust of Tinseltown have one man on speed dial: Chase Weber.

The PT and Nike Master Trainer counts athletes, celebs like The Beckhams and bloggers like Geri Hirsch of Because I’m Addicted and Hannah Bronfman of HBFit among his famous clients. To cater to his busy clients, he developed the 3-3-3 method: a series of total body workouts that combine strength, power and stability moves. Basically, you complete 3 mini circuits with 3 moves each, 3 times. They require zero equipment, work all your major muscle groups and you can do them anywhere. They’re also super quick (the one below will only take you around half an hour) but make no mistake, you’ll work up a serious sweat.

To do the 3-3-3 workout, start off with some quick dynamic stretches (there are some good examples here), before moving through the circuit:

Circuit 1 — repeat 3 times

  • Squats — 20 reps
  • Reverse lunge with knee drives — 8 reps on each side
  • Jump twist and squats — 8 reps

Circuit 2 — repeat 3 times

  • Push-ups — 12 reps
  • Three-legged dog twists — 8 reps on each side
  • Single-leg crunches — 8 reps on each side

Circuit 3 — repeat 3 times

  • Side lunges with hands raised — 8 reps on each side
  • Butterfly dips — 8 reps
  • Reverse crunch rolls — 8 reps
