I've been getting back into the swing of things with regular workouts, thanks to Healthworks. I'm obsessed with their gyms which are women only (girl power!) and have amazing "kids clubs" so you can catch a workout without having to stress about your kids!
Last week I took a 15-minute core class which led into Tabata with our rockstar instructor, Claudia. For those who aren't familiar with Tabata, it's a workout consisting of intense bursts of exercises lasting 20-seconds followed by a 10-second rest. Claudia chose two exercises (A + B); for example, A. Burpees and B. Bicep curls, and we rotated between burpees and bicep curls for 4 rounds. It's EXHAUSTING. I was literally dripping in sweat by the end of the workout. The class was packed, and I could definitely see why. Claudia is super engaged and motivating ... and in just 30 minutes, you can burn loads of calories and work your entire body.
I highly recommend you attend a class + see for yourself how amazing it is. Healthworks has locations in Boston Back Bay, Cambridge, Chestnut Hill, and Coolidge Corner.
For those who can't make it to the gym and would like to try this at home, here is a workout to try!
