Since heart disease is 80 percent preventable, we're showing you some heart healthy fitness tips throughout the month of July.

Many of you are very busy throughout the summer months, so this new workout trend, 'Scientific 7-Minute Workout', will be a quick way to get your pulse rate going.

It's a 7-minute, 12 exercise routine that includes: jumping jacks, wall sit, pushups, pushups and rotation, crunches, step up onto chair, triceps dip on chair, squat, plank, side plank, high knees, lunge.

WBTV went to Fit Central Charlotte at the Dowd YMCA to learn more. Watch what we learned in the attached video.
