You can tell by this week’s picture that class was suuuuper boring and nooooo fun at all this week 😳

I think that’s my favorite part about teaching this class. We’re like a big, crazy fitness family. When Jeff starts adding a slap to that last set of lunge jumps, or when we make loud, obnoxious try-hard noises during plyometric push-ups, or when Euphrasie wants to flip me off halfway through class but hug me as soon as it’s over…it’s the people in that fitness room who hold me accountable for my badassery. And I like to think I hold you guys a little accountable, too.

Great to have Lisa in class with us this week! Welcome to the family—you fit right in with us and our crazy cardio antics! See you next week…right?

Anyway, this week’s workout was filled with cardio, muscle group isolation, strength-building plyometric exercises and a little surprise at the end (thanks, Kim…you’re a genius). Follow the workout off my blog, or come join us in class next week and get in on the good times. We work hard, sweat a lot, swear a little (okay, a lot), and laugh through it all…

But enough chit chat. Go get after it, already!

Sign-Up for HIIT Class

My HIIT workouts are designed so they can be done on your own, wherever you are, without needing weights or other exercise equipment. But I promise you you'll push yourself harder—and have a lot more fun—in one of my classes. Join us next Tuesday from 6:30-7:30pm at Central Rock Gym in Randolph, MA.

The HIIT Workout

Stretch: 5-min

Jumprope: 1-min

10/15/20: 10 of each jumping jacks, mountain climbers, and burpees. Then 15 of each. Then 20 of each. No rests, and remember…this is just the warmup, baby!

Cardio: Do each exercises for 30-seconds at max intensity with a 10-second rest in between. Circle through the exercises 3x. Take a 1-minute rest after your 3rd set.

  • Toe tap hops
  • Zig zag hops
  • Figure skaters

Legs: Same format as cardio

  • Triple treats
  • Side lunge, leg lifts (left)

  • Side lunge, leg lifts (right)

Upper body: Same format as cardio and legs

  • Plyometric push-ups (with an extra loud try-hard noise with every pop)
  • Plank jacks
  • Wide-arm push-ups
  • Donkey kicks

Last set, killer set: Same format as above, but do each of the 12 exercises for 30-seconds each, starting with cardio and finishing with upper body.

Happy abs: I can’t give away the secret to happy abs—you gotta come to class for that. See you next Tuesday (hey-o) at 6:30pm at Central Rock Gym in Randolph. Or if you’re interested in focusing a whole workout on your six pack, come to abdominals class Wednesday nights at 6:15pm.
