Now, as a stay at home mother of 2 – an hour at a local gym seems like a task! I guess that’s just how it is and that’s just how it is going to be. So I found the quickest way to make my body work double hard with just a 30-minute workout and found myself on the road to fitness once again.

It’s called “ High-Intensity Training” or HIIT. By definition, High-Intensity Workouts are short bursts of high-intensity cardio combined with a short rest period and then repeated – over and over again. An example would be, sprinting at your fastest pace for 2 minutes and jogging for 1 minute and repeating this for an entire session. If you are not active enough for a sprint, you can jog for 2 minutes and speed-walk for 1. The best part about HIIT workouts is that you can choose whatever form of cardio you want!

I started off by using the stairs in the building to walk up and take the lift down as a rest period and repeat the same cycle. Other days, I cycled around the neighbourhood or sprinted and jogged.
