Jumpstart January: HIIT Cardio & Strength Video

Hello all!  How is your week going?  I feel like I am finally getting back on track with my first U.S. workout done and dusted since returning from my trip.  It was just an hour of yoga and pilates but man it felt good!  In honor of Jumpstart January, I have a new video for you today!  Each week this month I will (hopefully if iMovie cooperates) be posting a new workout video!  That’s right, FOUR new videos this month!  Today’s video was shot on Sydney Harbour because with a view like this who wouldn’t want to jump up and down like a crazy person?

Sydney

 This video is a short half hour video with a mix of high intensity cardio intervals and strength training.  Make sure you warm up for a few minutes beforehand by either walking, jogging or jump roping to get your muscles ready (personally I walked from my house to this location for my warm up!).  Also make sure you drink plenty of water and pause to take breaks if you need to.  Enjoy!

 

Please note, there is no copyright infringement intended in this video.  This video constitutes fair use.  Participants use is at own risk.

Readers, how long does it take you get back into a routine after traveling?  Do you enjoy quick HIIT workouts or do you prefer longer, steady state?  Anyone else wish they could workout outside right now without freezing their fingers and toes off?

  1. Hey Britt! Thanks for this video. I can’t wait to try it out! I have a workout planned for today but I’m going to do your vid tomorrow.

    I usually get back to workouts pretty quickly after travel. I have my fun and then get right back on track! I love HIIT workouts because they are so schedule friendly. If I’m pinched for time and need to get a workout in I will go for HIIT. I can’t wait for it to warm up so I can workout outside! I live in Connecticut so I feel your pain about the cold :-)

  2. hello gorgeous!!! I think you should just travel around the world and make awesome workout videos :) Wish I could do this but no jumping for me. Maybe in a few months though!

  3. I love HIIT workouts, though it’s harder for me to do more than one or two in a week. Fortunately, I play volleyball on other days, because I think I’d be limping all over the place otherwise!

  5. I am SO looking forward to your videos… I have made a vow to try and exercise more at home, so you will definitely be added to my video rotation!

  6. I LOVE this workout and you cannot beat the location!! HIIT training is probably my favorite to do with weights since I find strength training so be somewhat boring…which is what I know most people think of running!
    I don’t know how you ever left Australia with that landscape. I could run for DAYS there. Thank you for sharing it with us!

    • Thanks Allie! When I saw the location I knew I had to put something together! And you would be proud of me because the scenery was so gorgeous I went for a run with the Hubs almost everyday!

  7. Depends how long I’m gone – I’m used to weekends away because my boyfriend is in a different city, but if we’re talking anything longer than 4 days, it’s take me a while to get back into the swing of things. I love HIIT workouts – so beneficial!

  9. Definitely a “go to” exercise video for me! Great background.

  10. Jay is in NYC until late next week so making my favorite yoga class is difficult so this was just what I was looking for! I will try this out next week.

    I”ve only done a real HIIT class with Chris Freytag at FitSocial and it was killer! I have the video but I’ve been a little intimidated. However, one of my goals this year is try a new class or video per month so….

    I try to workout when I travel but if I’m bushed, I take the time I need to prevent injury (I’m a klutz).

  11. Yayyyy love this…I’m a huge fan of HIIT. I’m too antsy to do cardio for an hour or anything like that. HIIT is perfection and I like that you can mix cardio movies with weights and all that good stuff. What a perfect place to be able to do this workout….the view is gorgeous. You’re so lucky you were able to be there!

  12. This totally kicked my butt, in the best way possible! Love it! I usually shy away from shorter workouts because I don’t feel like I’m getting enough from them, but not this one! Thanks!
