Short on time? Here are two 20-minute treadmill workouts. The first focuses on running; you'll keep bumping up the treadmill's pace. The second is all about climbing, with frequent changes in the treadmill's incline.

Both routines -- designed by Jeff Baird, owner of Chaos Conditioning in Atlanta -- include a range of speeds, depending on your fitness level.
