With a focus on high intensity training and tabatas exercises, you can perform Refined Life Fitness’ training regimens at your local gym or even at home.

In this episode, Sarah discusses the benefits of higher intensity workouts, why weight training may be even more important than cardio routines as you age, and why she developed a program aimed at getting kids in shape.


The Finer Details of This Episode:

– What tabatas exercises are and how they compare and contrast with high-intensity interval training.

– Why we’re more prone to injury as we age, and how muscle training can prevent that.

– Carb cycling and why Sarah’s program places such focus on macronutrients.

“If you only have 4-10 minutes to work out, you can do tabatas and move on with your day.”

“You literally can transform your body by dong any sort of strength training at all.”

“It’s not about the number on the scale, it’s more about how your clothes fit and how you feel and the toneness of your body.”

“Nutrition is key to any successful wellness plan.”
