16 minute Tabata

Well, March is here, so that is crazy. This weekend we are going on a super duper short, but much needed weekend getaway. While I will be doing 0 physical activity (to relax and because my knee is acting up), I know that many of you will be active. This 16 minute tabata workout can be done before you get in the shower for brunch or as a quickie after work on a weekday. All you need is yourself and an interval timer app.

Remember, tabata is high intensity interval training. The goal is to get your heart rate up and then let it come back down. Really push it during your ‘working’ time.

November Tabata

Hi Friends!

I have officially started teaching group fitness this month and it has been so fun. If you haven’t come out to a class yet and you are in Baltimore then you need to join!! I am teaching at InlineFit in Canton on Monday evenings. Contact me for more deets or head to their page here.

Today I am sharing a Tabata workout we did in class earlier this month. Basically you’re working out with me from the comfort of your home. If you missed October’s Tabata you can grab it here, and save it for another day!

If you have confusion about an exercise or questions about making a move less or more challenging, please comment or contact me - my goal is to share workouts that everyone can do and I am happy to provide those modifications on request.
