    I used to be really into HIIT and this has motivated be to start again!

    1. HIIT workouts are great to get the blood pumping and combined with some weights will take your fitness to new heights! I hope you do get started up again and come back and let us know how you feel 🙂

  2. HIIT workouts are fabulous. Thank you for this post and encouraging people to try these. I’ve done some fabulous workouts both in the gym and at home. I also do a type of HIIT to get faster with my running. I run faster for a short time, then slow it down to an easy jog, then repeat. Sometimes I pick lampposts to do this, sometimes I set a timer on my watch. It’s great. HIIT also keeps my attention and prevents boredom.

    1. I LOVE a good HIIT workout and it’s always good to spread the good vibes to everyone else 🙂
      That’s such a good idea about using lampposts instead of timers. I’ll be honest though, I’m not much of a runner but I do love some star jumps, squats and quick knees 🙂

    This sounds interesting, definitely something I should try.

    1. If you don’t have much time on your hands but want a really effective cardio or bodyweight workout then this is the ticket for you 🙂

    I totally agree with your post! HIIT workouts are the best way to stay fit and not spend your life in the gym – a busy mom’s best friend!

    1. Oh absolutely, I don’t have kids, but I also don’t want to spend my life in the gym. So for me this is the best way to keep fit but also fits in with my lifestyle 🙂

  5. Yes! I love HIIT workouts, and I know so many people get overwhelmed by the name alone, they see it as something wild. But it is one of the best ways to burn tummy fat!

    1. I think the name does seem scary and I’ll be honest, when I first heard about it I was a bit frightened too but when I actually completed the first session I was thrilled. Sometimes trying new things can be daunting but the sense of achievement afterwards is totally worth it!

    I like to mix in HIIT workouts each week. I always feel great after I’ve completed one!

    1. That’s exactly the way to do it. Balance a HIIT with other forms of exercise. It gets the blood pumping and the endorphins rushing. I love it so much 😀

  7. There are so many great benefits of HIIT workouts! My go-to exercise is always running and this type of workout is also easily adapted for running. The endorphins from cardio definitely keep me coming back! Thanks for this very helpful post!

    1. Honestly, good for you. I can’t run to save my life and it’s something I’ve always wanted to do properly. I just can’t though. But HIIT is very easily workable with running. Simply run as fast as you can for 30 seconds then walk or jog for 30 seconds. As Patricia said, she sometimes uses lamp posts as her measurement. Whichever works 😀

    This is such a great and informative post! Thanks so much for sharing all these information about HIIT training.
    I personally rarely do HIIT as I feel like my body doesn’t really like it and doesn’t handle it well. Slower paced workouts work so much better for my body. But it’s good once in a while xx

    1. As much as I love HIIT, it really isn’t for everyone and if your body can’t handle it then you are totally right to avoid it and do what works for you. Like I’ve said, I really cannot run. I can’t so although I’d love to be able to run the length of myself one day I just know that it’s unlikely to happen. Good for you for putting your body first though, everyone is different and you have to do what’s right for you.
