With Coachella just weeks away, music lovers are gearing up to check out their favorite artists — but also itching to serve up some music festival fashion.

After hiding under sweaters and digging into some extra sweets during the winter, it might be hard to get back in the gym.

But getting toned in time for the annual festival is completely doable, and certified fitness trainer and yoga instructor Dempsey Marks is sharing a few easy exercises that can be done anywhere.

“I love soaking in the music, art and fashion at Coachella all while basking in spring desert warmth,” she tells PEOPLE. “Spring is fast-approaching and so you want an exercise program that provides fast results. My choice: a high-intensity program that combines aerobic and strength training.”

Marks — who created the PreGame Fit fitness and lifestyle program — has also created the perfect playlist to workout to with artists from the festival’s line-up. “Motivate your spring fitness plan with a great playlist,” she suggests.
