Workout of the Week: Anywhere HIIT Workout

HIIT or High Intensity Interval Training is my other favorite kind of workout for almost all of the same benefits of Circuit Training but with the most important one being that it can be done ANYWHERE with ZERO equipment and is typically a faster, shorter workout (less than 30 minutes!).

A high level recap of the benefits of HIIT are below:

  • Metabolism booster

  • Fat burner

  • Can be done anywhere, anytime

  • Little to no equipment necessary

  • Mix + match exercises and your options are ENDLESS

  • Quick + effective

I won't be upset if you choose this over Circuit Training since they're both ROCKSTARS of the fitness world. :)
