It’s no secret that high intensity interval training has many benefits. Here are my top reasons why short bursts of intensity, (otherwise known as HIIT) is my favourite type of workout 🙌
✔️It helps build endurance
✔️Burns calories and body fat in a shorter period of time – winning
✔️Promotes effective use of energy
✔️Provides an after burn of calories post workout – again we are winning
✔️You don’t need fancy equipment
✔️It’s great for heart health
✔️HIIT totally takes you out of your comfort zone pushing you into the unknown but man oh man it feels good afterwards 😍
