Introduction: Full Body Workout at Home

Picture of Full Body Workout at Home

My favorite part of the day consists of a hard workout! There's no better feeling than sweating all of the toxins out of your system especially after a long weekend. If you're like me, you're super busy with a limited time frame to workout. My daily workouts consist of 60 mins of HITT (High Intense Interval Training). It allows me to train at a fast pace, and burn a ton of calories at the same time. Just my type of workout! There's never a dull moment with HITT, each workout is different and pushes me to my limit.
NO MORE LONG HOURS AT THE GYM
