It’s week 3 of the new year and if you are like most people you may notice that you are tapering off on those fitness resolutions.  Instead of going to the gym three times a week, you cut it down to just two.  Instead of 30 minutes of cardio everyday you cut it back to just long enough to walk the dog.  And although you may be beating yourself up about dedicating less time to your health and fitness, the truth is it’s not actually such a bad idea.

Whether you’re a working professional, a stay at home mother, a student, or all of these at the same time, finding time to work out can be an exercise within itself.  Common reasons that people tend to break commitments to health and fitness:

  1. Lack of time.
  2. Lack of money for gym memberships
  3. Lack of motivation

For these reasons, I’ve adopted High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) for workouts and those featured on my site, The New Sexy.  The benefits of the HIIT method include:

  • fat burning and muscle building potential are maximized
  • maximum and increased metabolism
  • increased calorie burn during and up to 48 hours after exercise


Studies show that 27 minutes of HIIT workouts 3 times a week will produce the same anaerobic and aerobic results as 60 minutes of cardio 5 times a week.  So, 81 minutes a week or just 12-15 minutes a day!  But keep in mind, it’s not your average 12 minutes.  It’s 12 minutes of pushing your body to the max!



Try a fitness workout that takes up  less of your time and has equal or more benefits than a longer workout to stick to your resolutions.  This could be the key to reaching your personal goals.  Work out smarter, harder and save money!  When the baby takes a nap, the kids are at school, a quick break from the books or first thing in the morning before all of the craziness starts move over the coffee table and take 12-15 minutes and HIIT it!
