LESS IS MORE: Why 18 Minutes is Our Magic Number
No, we’re not crazy. We are totally aware that when we first tell people about our FitazFK workouts and how they only take 18 minutes to complete, they look at us like we’re crazy.
And they get even more confused when we tell them that our 18 minute workouts are actually more effective than spending an hour or more sweating it out in the gym.
Because here’s the truth: longer workouts aren’t necessarily better.
When you know you’ll be spending an hour or two working out, you’re much more likely to skip your workout altogether because we all know life gets BUSY. And it makes sense—an hour is a long time to commit to when you’ve got a million other things going on.
The great thing? Our FitazFK programs only require 18 minutes of your day! And with our short, intense EMOM interval style workouts, that age old excuse of ‘being too busy’ totally goes out the window. Because everyone has an extra 18 minutes a day up their sleeve.
Don’t agree? Just think about all the things you currently waste time on now… watching that last episode of YOU on Netflix, taking an extra long shower or hitting snooze for the fifteenth time on a Monday morning, you get the picture. No matter how busy your days are, you can easily shave off a few minutes here and there, and come up with enough time to get a 18 minute workout in.
So WHY 18 minutes?
It’s the perfect number. 18 minutes; it isn’t too long or too short….it’s basically the goldie locks of circuits that will leave your body feeling just right. With 5 minutes of warming up and down either side of your workout, there is essentially only 18 minutes of the conditioning phase so it is important to push your limits and give your all during these sessions. And trust us, if you think it seems too short, wait until you give it a go. You’ll be feeling the burn in no time!
Our style of EMOM (every minute on the minute) resistance workouts focusses on maximising all of your major muscle groups. Not only will these short but tough HIIT workouts boost your metabolism, but it will also raise your body’s fat burning power and burn more calories in way less time (win, win!).
What’s even better? Recent studies have also shown that HIIT training can improve your fitness levels in as little as TWO weeks, and can give you the same cardiovascular and muscular benefits as steady state cardio in half to one-third the amount of time.
Let’s face it, no one really wants to be spending hours at the gym or stressing about exercising. This year we are saying FK it to boring workouts because that was sooo 2018.
