Tabata Training

Welcome to Fitness Friday on the blog my friend!  Today we’re doing my FAVORITE kind of workout, TABATA.  What is tabata? It’s a type of short interval training that is high intensity and it is GREAT for burning fat and boosting metabolism as well as increasing aerobic and anaerobic fitness!  The coolest thing is that you can get a killer workout in a super short amount of time!  Say goodbye to the hour + at the gym!  This is the type of fitness we can all get down with!

Got a jump rope? Ok, let’s get to work!!
