HIIT Cardio Workouts for Weight Loss

Photo by: iStock

My name is Katrina Turnbull, a mom of two young boys. I gained and lost 100 pounds after having my two babies.

As a busy mom and working woman, I found it really hard to lose weight because I was tired from looking after two kids. I also couldn’t leave the house while my kids were sleeping, let alone spend hours at the gym.

I had heard about HIIT (high intensity interval training) as a type of fast-paced exercise for time-strapped women who want to see results quickly. It’s basically like doing an hour-long workout in 15 minutes.

I made three HIIT workout plan videos to help women, like myself, lose weight fast. The first video in the series is HIIT cardio. Workouts like these are a very effective weight loss exercise interval training technique. After doing HIIT three times a week, I started to see noticeably toning and less belly fat.

One thing that really helped motivate me to work out was having a cute sportswear outfit. When I started my weight lost journey, I invested in three complete fashion fitness wear outfits that I mix and match for a full fitness apparel wardrobe.

I found this type of exercise (cardiovascular fitness) to be the best, quick fitness program for weight loss. I also had to put a lot more thought into my meal and snack choices, which have helped me to continue to lose weight and keep it off.

I filmed these videos a year ago and I’ve lost 20 more pounds since then – for a total of 100 pounds!
