20 Minute HIIT with Mel 

I’ve always been a huge HIIT advocate, so I am creating an eBook offering a 12 week program that will start off slow, then work up to longer and more intense workouts which will quickly have you sweating, panting, and feeling stronger than ever. It will incorporate my favorite moves in a structure that is effective and developmental, allowing you to get fit without having to commit hours a day to the gym. Stay tuned for the launch of my eBook and in the meantime, get started with this 20 minute HIIT workout below!
