High Intensity Interval Training

I love working out. Yes, I do complain when my trainer is pushing me especially during high- intensity interval training (HIIT). I have a love/hate relationship for HIIT simply because of the interval training and no rest until your finish with a set, which can take up all your energy.

It’s the benefits of HIIT that I enjoy:

  1. Efficient
    1. It does not take up all day. If you have a busy schedule you can still squeeze in a workout either early in the morning, during a lunch break, after work or before bedtime. As mention in Shape magazine “Research shows you can achieve more progress in a mere 15 minutes of interval training doing it 3x a week then jogging on a treadmill for an hour.” Continue reading “HIIT”

I want to say losing weight is easy, but that will be a lie. There will be moments when you doubt yourself and want to be made over again. Start with a clean slate, but some times you have to encourage yourself. No matter how you feel, have the confidence in your process. Continue reading “Encourage Yourself”

80/20 Rule

By: Ms. K

I am not going to lie, I don’t always follow the 80/20 rule in fitness. For the last two months I have been following a vegetarian lifestyle. The last two weeks have been the hardest with trying to eat healthy and working out. Looking back at my pictures I realize I haven’t ran in two weeks. I basically been slacking with my workout. Plus I have been eating out more, and drinking.
