Benefits of HIIT
1. Improves Your Metabolism
Combining high intensity with interval training speeds your metabolic rate and gives you a metabolism boost for up to 48 hours after a complete HIIT routine. This means you’ll still be burning fat even after you’ve left the gym!
2. Fast Workouts
HIIT workouts can be done anywhere and most are 30 minutes or less!
3. No Equipment Necessary
No exercise equipment? No worries! HIIT workouts generally use only your body weight, since the focus is on getting your heart rate up and keeping it there.
