Summer is a time when you want to look your best. You also want to feel your best and feel good in your body. What you don’t want is to spend hours in a gym. The blog team at Williams and McDaniel Property Management has one word for you — HIIT. Ok, so it’s not actually a word, it’s an acronym for High Intensity Interval Training. We’ve put together some workouts you can do in as little as 20 intense minutes in the comfort of your Stratford apartment at Avon Place (359 -397 Railway Avenue). As always, check with your doctor before beginning any exercise program.
Best for beginners
This HIIT workout video for beginners takes you through a warm up and introduces beginners to
the basics. Don’t expect it to be easy — the whole point is to work as hard as you can for a short period of time. It requires no equipment, making it easy to do at home. Good luck!
Get it in and get on with your day
An intense 20 minute workout seems to be the “sweet spot” for keeping focus and form. Any less than 20 minutes and you may not be working as hard as you need to — any more than 20 minutes, and you may not be as efficient and intense.
20 minutes, no equipment needed
A HIIT workout means working out as intensely as you can for a brief period (usually 30 seconds to 1 minute) followed by a less intense moving rest period, followed by another intense peak period. This video will show you how. The only equipment you may want is a yoga mat.
This workout requires an intense 20 minutes, but the results can include a better you! This straightforward workout video takes you through the paces, step by step, then a quick rest, then more intense steps, getting progressively tougher as you go.
If you’re looking to burn calories, burn fat and get a leaner, stronger body that you feel good in — HIIT may be the best way to go. It won’t take up much time, but it could make a big difference in how you feel.
