HIIT Workout of the Month

HIIT
Exercise

Coming up to the silly season, our time poor society becomes even more time poor, which is hard to believe really but it's true. The first thing that is set to be pushed aside is exercise, because let's face it, it isn't as fun as a champagne breakfast or Christmas drinks after work!
