Your schedule can seem like a non-stop roller coaster, and sometimes, squeezing in a killer workout just seems out of the question. Don’t worry – we get it. It’s all about prioritizing and finding a quick, challenging workout that covers all the bases. NYHRC personal trainer, Elysia Cronheim, has the perfect routine for those jam-packed days.

“Instead of hitting the treadmill for 40 minutes on a workout that only effects one area, do HIIT circuits that incorporate both cardio and strength training,” says Elysia.” Since you need both cardio and strength to reduce body fat and reach your fitness goals, you’re doing double the work in a shorter time frame.”

Next time you’re short on time, try Elysia’s favorite HIIT circuit:

  • 10 burpees
  • 3 minutes of jump rope
  • 20 squat jumps
  • 30 secs mountain climbers

Repeat 3-4 times.
