The four minute workout this mum was still able to do on holiday

When we’re on holiday, it’s easy to get distracted and slip up with our weight loss efforts.

But Sarah Jimenez, who has lost 11kg in 5 months following the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges and drinking The Healthy Mummy Smoothies, still managed to fit in a four minute Tabata workout on her family’s weekend away.

Sarah’s thoughts on Tabata

On a weekend family getaway to Byron Bay, Sarah was still able to squeeze in a Tabata workout thanks to the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge App.

“My husband’s filming shows that with any hurdle, even a husband that laughs at you, anyone can still spend 4 mins doing this fabulous workout. I hope that this can be a video that is viewed as ‘keeping it real’.”

Here are Sarah’s top 3 reasons why she loves Tabata!

1. It only takes four minutes to complete one Tabata workout. We can all spare four minutes!

2. It is a high intensity workout that burns maximum calories, and the app features workouts from beginner to advanced.

3. The videos and instructions are clear, easy to follow and fun!

What is Tabata?

Tabata squat

Tabata is an increasingly popular high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workout of four minute exercises. It incorporates a warm up and uses full-body exercises that engage as many muscle groups as possible.

Shorter, more intense workouts provide quicker results for increased cardiovascular capacity, endurance and weight loss so these are PERFECT for busy mums!

Athletes and fitness professionals LOVE it for a super-aerobic cardio workout that shows fast results. And whether you’re a beginner or intermediate, they can be both intense and challenging.

We have a whole HEAP of Tabata exercises on our 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge App – check them out under the Exercise Tab! And why not give it a go?
