As a personal trainer there are a few conversations I find myself having with clients over and over.
One of those conversations often goes something like this:
Me: “How did your exercise go this week?”
Client: “Not bad”
Me: “Were you able to stick to your plan each day?”
Client: “Most days. But there were a few when I just didn’t have any time.”
And I know it’s not just my clients who face the “no time” problem.
In fact, a lack of time is routinely cited as the #1 reason most people don’t exercise more frequently. You’re busy. I’m busy. Many days there really is little time for a trip to the gym.
That’s what I love about Carla & Roni’s #wycwyc concept.
Instead of adopting a defeatist attitude that says, “I’m busy, therefore I can’t” #wycwyc encourages us to remember that “Even if I have just 5 minutes, I can.”
I recently began preparing #wycwyc workouts for my clients and they love them!
Each workout is easily modified to suit any fitness level, and you can extend or shorten these routines depending on how much time you have available.
The one I want to share with you to today is based on Tabata training. It uses quick (as in 20-second), high-intensity bursts of exercise followed by even shorter (10-second rest periods).
This particular workout is intended to be done in 6 minutes – Seriously, that’s all you need.
Will you join me for a #wycwyc Tabata workout right now?
