This 15-minute workout will kick-start your metabolism

Metabolism is a term that describes all chemical reactions in the body. These chemical reactions keep the body alive and functioning.

However, the word metabolism is often used interchangeably with metabolic rate, or the number of calories burned. The higher it is, the more calories you burn and the easier it is to lose weight and keep it off.

Having a high metabolism can also give you energy and make you feel better.

Here are 5 simple workout to increase your metabolism.
