The magic of HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) is in its efficiency and ability to achieve more results in less time. More for less – sounds good to us!!

HIIT is a well known accelerant for metabolism because calories continue to burn long after you’ve finished exercising.

These short time bursts of exercise are IDEAL for busy mums and perfect for when you’re on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.
