Life Magazine: Fast & Effective HIIT Training

Fast & Effective HIIT Training

As summer comes to an end, many of us are left scrambling to reach our idealized health and fitness goals.  Pressed for time and unsure where to begin, the daunting search for a fast and effective workout is in full effect.  With just a few weeks left, can we realistically turn things around?  The answer— is yes!

Get twice the results in half the time with high intensity interval training (HIIT).  High intensity interval training is a style of exercise that alternates between high-intensity bursts (80-90% max heart rate) and low-intensity recovery periods (40-60% max heart rate) to increase calorie burn while drastically shortening your workout time.  What does this mean for you?  You can still snag the summer body you’ve been dreaming of!

High intensity interval training works by maximizing physical exertion during high-intensity bursts, thus increasing oxygen consumption and triggering the afterburn effect.  The afterburn effect tells your body to consume higher levels of oxygen post-workout, therefore increasing metabolism and burning more calories long after you’ve completed exercising.

Are you ready to HIIT it into high gear?  Turn up the heat and scorch some serious calories with this summer’s hottest HIIT workout— the 21 Day Fix.  If you’re looking for a simple, fun, effective, at-home workout program to whip your rear into gear, then the 21 Day Fix is perfect for you!  Featuring 30 minute at-home workouts (tailored to any fitness level), this program comes complete with an easy-to-follow, super flexible, portion-controlled, clean eating meal plan to help you drop those stubborn summer pounds.  With the summer quickly coming to an end, 21 days may be the fix you need.  Interested?  Find out more at teambeachbody.com.
