You try to stay in shape, but you’re busy. Your kids have soccer practice, you and your spouse both work full-time, and your dog was just diagnosed with a double ear infection. You don’t have time to hit the gym 3, 4, 5 times a week. How can you spend less time, but get more out of your workouts?
When you need to a fast, effective way to remain active, you need a high intensity training program (HIT). Instead of daily workouts, you’ll complete 20-30 minute sessions 2-3 days a week. You’ll complete a variety of exercises, each aimed at building muscle, stamina, and endurance. The exercises, stretches, and activities you perform can all be modified to fit your specific needs.
HIT will help you build energy, reduce stress, and will provide you with an escape, albeit short, from the chaos of everyday life. Regular HIT workouts can reduce your blood pressure, strengthen your heart, lungs, and muscles, and can assist in your efforts to lose weight.
Patients who suffer from chronic injuries can use HIT to burn calories and stay active. They don’t have to suffer through long, painful exercises. You don’t either. Whether you’re a weekend warrior, gym fanatic, or you’re just trying to find a way to fit in an occasional workout, a high-intensity training program (HIT) may be right for you.
The next time you complain that you’re too busy to workout, think again. Remember you don’t need hours to stay healthy. If you’re disciplined, driven and willing to put in the work several days a week, you too can realize the benefits of a high-intensity training program (HIT). Talk to your doctors, develop a workout plan, and take the first step toward getting your body and your mind back into shape.
