The Workout Sweet Spot: 30 Minutes or 60 Minutes?

Fit in 30 minutes? Sound too good to be true?

Yep, that’s a real thing. Say goodbye to those grueling long gym sessions.

30 minutes is all you need for a maximum fat burn. In just 30 minutes, you can shed calories at a rate that trumps what you’d during from a longer workout.


Only 30 Minutes?

But why? Don’t you burn more calories when you work out for longer periods of time?

Yes and no. Yes, people initially burn more calories during longer workouts, but their results taper off the longer they push their bodies. That’s when fatigue sets in, form gets sloppy, and fat-burn slows down.

Shorter, more intense workouts produce what’s known as the Afterburn effect. These high-paced workouts accelerate your metabolism.

The result? Your body works overtime to burn fat and shed weight.


Your Workouts Need Variety!

You know what’s even better? Our workouts keep the body on its toes (pardon the pun), so you won’t stress out about creating new workouts just to motivate yourself.

At Fit Body, every workout is something new. You might get a leg workout one day, an ab workout the next, and a full body workout the day after that. Once it’s leg day again, that workout will be completely different from your last leg session.Fitbody Bootcamp

Even the different stations within a Fit Body workout mix things up. So say you come in for an ab session. You might do flutter kicks, medicine ball sit-ups, and plyo box ab exercises in the same session.

See, when you change up the exercises you do in a session, your body loses fat faster than if it were to do one exercise for a long period of time.
