Chances are you haven’t heard of Tabata training but it just might be the missing link in helping you to reach your health and fitness goals.
Tabata training addresses one of the biggest barriers we all have to exercising, TIME!
Tabata is a training method which originated in Japan after a team of scientists, lead by Dr Izumi Tabata, compared the outcomes of training at different intensities over a 6 week period. At the conclusion of the study, they found that the group that worked at high intensity for 4 days a week for only 4 MINUTES AND 20 SECONDS showed the biggest improvements in their aerobic and anaerobic fitness when compared to the other groups.

If performed at a high enough intensity, you’ll get quite the workout in 4 minutes with guaranteed results!
