Favorite Workouts

Typically you either love working out or you don't.
I do!
I've consistently worked out since Middle School.  Betsy and I have always been active and played sports and I can remember getting up before school everyday and doing aerobics.  Ha!  That was the big workout back then.  
Now my workouts are 30 mins or less and typically HIIT style workouts.  I've had so many of you asking for me to share my top favorite workouts so here are a few of them!  Be sure to scroll down to the end where I'm sharing my favorite sites for finding these workouts.

TREADMILL WORKOUT:

I'm not the biggest runner.  My husband and I ran a half-marathon years ago and that was about the extent of that.  I enjoy an occasional run around the block with the kids or challenge on the treadmill.  This one is so good!!  Even if you only do half of this run workout - that's awesome!!
Every 2 minutes you adjust the incline and speed.
