HIIT (high intensity interval training) is HOT!! Tabata Bootcamp is the new new hit!! For years we have been focusing on calories burned during exercise, but new research reveals that we should focus on what happens AFTER exercise is over. Tabata workouts are short in duration and designed to boost post exercise caloric burn so your metabolism keeps burning more calories long after the exercise is over. Tabata offers the newest and most unique approach to hit the fitness world with incredible results!
