holiday HIIT workout

The holidays are here! Time to commence with the whirlwind of recitals, visiting relatives, marathon gift-wrapping and giving of every ounce of energy you have to making sure that the next few weeks are chock-full of holiday cheer! With all the hustle and bustle that the season brings, its easy to get trapped under a mound of baked goods and forget to take time for yourself.

As if scheduling workouts during an average week wasn’t difficult enough, attempting to do so during the holidays creates a particular challenge. Let’s face it, all that traveling, volunteering and entertaining doesn’t exactly afford you much time to get out and get to the studio – no matter how great the reward may be.

Fortunately, you don’t have to go far to get a great Burn 60 workout (or spend a lot of time!). The HIIT exercise format we subscribe to here at the studio can be adjusted to meet the demands of your extra busy schedule just about anywhere. Our routine below requires zero equipment and can be done 20 minutes or less!
