Get bored easily when working out? Dislike doing machines at the gym? Don’t have a lot of time? Circuit training workouts are where it’s at. And no matter if you’re a beginner or seasoned exerciser, they are a fabulous way to either get fit or take your fitness to the next level.
How? Well, circuit training workouts are exactly what they sound like: a number of different strength and/or cardio moves you run through again and again in a certain sequence or — you guessed it — circuit. Because circuit training workouts are interval-based with lots of variation and intensity, they’re also usually considered HIIT — and give you a cardio and strength workout in one. Because who has time to do cardio and strength? Ain’t nobody got time for that! (Just kidding: if you have time and enjoy it, HAVE AT IT!)
