Try it for yourself!

A fit body, a calm mind, a house full of love. These things cannot be bought – they must be earned.

According to Celebrity trainers Andrea Rogers and Aaron Forrest, 30 minutes of exercise is all you need to get your body into shape.

To start, all healthy adults are encouraged to get about 150 minutes of moderate exercise or 75 minutes of vigorous exercise per week. The most efficient way to get your amount of exercise is to strive toward getting about 75 minutes of high intensity workouts.

One of the most popular form of vigorous exercise is high intensity interval training or HIIT for short. The exercise comes in multiple different kinds of workouts such as running, spinning, and jumping rope. Here’s what Aaron Forrest had to say about the exercise, “High Intensity Interval Training is the best bang for your buck when it comes to a high calorie burn in short periods of time, HIIT is notorious for throttling your heart rate with moments of recovery in between.”

“This interval training format triggers the EPOC effect (excess post-exercise oxygen consumption). A HIIT or high-intensity strength-training workout can add about 5 to 15 percent of the total energy cost of the exercise session. High-intensity workouts require more energy from the anaerobic pathways and can generate a greater EPOC effect, leading to extended post-exercise energy expenditure – or as we sometimes like to call it, ‘the Afterburn Effect,'” Forrest added. 

Another great method is to do workout moves that use your entire body. This helps by making sure that you use every muscle group each time you workout. Some great examples are push-ups and planks. Trainer Andrea Rogers said this about the workout, “One of my go-to moves is a tried and true plank. I like to shake up the plank a little bit and add moves like a passe, where you bring the opposite foot to the knee which provides you with a little less stability in the move, which further initiates core engagement, specifically the obliques.”

To see results as fast as possible it’s recommended that you exercise 5 days a week. “If you’re just starting out on your fitness journey, start with whatever you can and work on increasing up to 30 minutes a day,” Forrest suggested.
