Are you struggling to find time to workout? Try Tabata!

Lasting benefits in just 4 minutes!

HIIT Training has become a very popular workout plan. HIIT stands for high interval intensity training. A 20-minute Tabata workout allows you to improve your cardiorespiratory endurance along with other benefits. This also helps you work your way towards the ACSM guidelines for weekly physical activity of 150-300 minutes.

According to exercise physiologist Dr. Michele Olson states that “Turns out, it can burn a whopping 13.5 calories a minute—and double a person’s metabolic rate for 30 minutes afterward.”
