The holidays have come and gone, and you’re left to deal with the aftermath of all that less-than-healthy eating… Your body is puffy and bloated. Your joints are achy. Your clothes feel tight.

Did you over-do it at Christmas? Are you dealing with the after-effects of CARBAGEDDON? You know what I mean – the sluggish, bloated, can’t-fit-into-my-jeans sort of feeling that comes from over-indulging for too many days in a row? I did. I am.

The latest trends in fitness are leaning toward the ‘shorter is better’ philosophy…but do dramatically shortened workouts really get the job done?
No one can deny that the days of spending hours running, biking or doing any other number of slow, cardio-based exercise sessions (Jazzercise anyone?) are long gone. We simply don’t have the time, and have come to realize that these long, drawn out workout sessions don’t give us the best return on our time investment.
