The 12-Minute Athlete

Get Fitter, Faster, and Stronger Using HIIT and Your Bodyweight

Get serious results with high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workouts; give up the excuses and learn to use your own bodyweight and a few basic pieces of portable equipment for short, incredibly effective workouts. Reset your mindset, bust through mental blocks, and set goals you’ll actually accomplish. You can finally ditch the dieting and enjoy food as fuel with simple eating guidelines to the 80/20 rule.
    The 12-Minute Athlete is for men and women, ex-athletes and new athletes, experienced athletes and “non-athletes” – for anyone who has a body and wants to get stronger and live their healthiest life.
