30 Minute Cardio HIIT Workout

September 28, 2016

My fitness journey really started when I found a HIIT (high intensity interval training) studio in Brooklyn through ClassPass. I couldn’t believe how quickly I was able to build strength and endurance. I always walked into class knowing that I would leave with that feeling of an accomplished workout and walked out soaked from head to toe in sweat. There aren’t a lot of HIIT studios in many cities so I wanted to share a HIIT workout that you can try at home.

If you’re not familiar with HIIT, I highly recommend that you give it a try due to the amazing benefits that you can gain from this type of workout. HIIT training is proven to burn fat, improve endurance and build strength because the intensity is higher and you’re alternating intense short periods of anaerobic (with weights) and/or aerobic (with cardio) exercise with recovery periods. The best part of HIIT training is that you’ll still be burning calories post workout! Keep in mind that the key is to get in as many reps as you can!

Get you’re stopwatch or timer out, put on a HIIT playlist and give it a try! GO!
