Fitness guru Kathy “G” Glabicky dropped by to show us this quick routine to burn major calories this Fall.

Kathy G’s Tread Tabata is the BEST combination of killer cardio and muscle-sculpting to tighten, tone, and increase strength and stamina!
It incorporates tabata intervals on the treadmill (20 seconds on, 10 seconds off for 8 rounds) with full body HIIT (high-intensity interval training) exercises on the floor.
It is the most effective use of one hour, and you feel like you hit every muscle group.

You do not need to be a runner to do tread. In fact, most people are not “runners.” The health benefits of tread translate to so many disciplines; whether athletic or just in your day to day.

The afterburn effect is amazing. Normally you stop working out and the calorie burning benefit ceases the minute you step off the machine; with tread you walk away from class an energy burning machine for hours!

As Kathy G says,”you can do anything for 20 seconds!” It’s the truth!
