First, to my overwight people, I want to commend you for reading this with the mindset to better your health and well-being.

It's been a while since we posted a workout, so this week we are going back to basics and focusing on a good old HIIT circuit. As you all know from previous posts, HIIT circuits are the perfect blend of strength and cardio movements to increase fat burn and caloric burn long after the workout is complete.

When I was 11 my mother passed of breast cancer and I still grieve to this day.
