5 Minute HIIT Pilates: December Total Body

December 16, 2018

HIIT Pilates combines all the principles from high-intensity interval training and Pilates to:

 

✔ burn fat

✔ boost metabolism

✔ sculpt/tone

✔ release stress

✔ increase flexibility

 

For the month of December, we’re putting it all together to get a full body workout. We’re diving into the holidays, so of course there’s a lot more temptation to indulge with food and drinks, but we all have at least 5 minutes every day to get a little workout in. December is the perfect time to balance moderation before New Year’s Resolutions - you can still feel healthy and strong with all the festivities going on. It sometimes helps to grab a family member or friend to join in on the workout.

 

As always, feel free to reverse the order of the workout if you want to tackle HIIT first.

 

Are you ready?
