It's bound to be a brilliant, booty-tastic, time.
HIIT, or high intensity interval training, is all the rage for burning mega calories in a short amount of time. If you're up for short stints of intensive cardio exercise with quick recovery periods in between, it will have wonderous effects on your cardiovascular and metabolic systems.
