Want to burn fat fast?

Who doesn’t right?

Gone are the days of hours of slow intensity cardio 5-7 days a week--unless of course you are training for a marathon! Slow intensity training burns energy and fat {slowly} but it also causes you to lose muscle and feel miserable.

Enter HIIT.

HIIT stands for High Intensity Interval Training. I have fallen in love with HIIT cardio and I'm LOVING the results. Incorporating 1-2 hours worth of HIIT sessions per week will help you burn fat fast! You may be asking, "But what is HIIT exactly?" HIIT describes any training method that alternates between intense bursts of activity and periods of less-intense activity or complete rest.

Science has proven that HIIT sessions burn more fat and calories than steady pace runs. And it also revs up your metabolism in the 24 hours following your workout. So you not only burn more calories during a shorter amount of time but the effects are longer lasting!

HIIT workouts are challenging. You will be pushing yourself HARD for small intervals with little rest in between sets. But the good news is that it’s FAST and the results are amazing. I've also found it to be a more fun way to get my cardio in because you get to challenge yourself with each workout.

New to HIIT? Try this perfect beginner HIIT cardio session and start blasting away fat. Run fast (Run at a pace of 7-8 out of 10 difficulty level for you. Make sure you are truly challenging yourself) for 1 minute and then jog for 2 minutes (Jog at a pace of 5 out of 10 difficulty level for you. This should be a very comfortable pace to allow your heart rate to come down). Repeat this 5 times for a quick & effective workout.
