How To Get Fit Fast

Here at ESC HQ we know just how important it is to make every second count, and when it comes to fitness we’re always on the look-out for ways to get the best out of our workouts. Which is why our noses are currently buried in Fast Exercise, the just-released book from best-selling author of The Fast Diet, Dr Michael Mosley. This time round, he has teamed up with health and fitness journalist Peta Bee (follow Peta on Twitter @petabeeuk) to spread the word about why and how to harness the power of speedy workouts to help you get fit fast.

So if you’re still not sure about HIT (High Intensity Training) but think it might be your answer to a flat stomach, toned arms or firmer glutes, then make reaching for a copy of Fast Exercise your next move.

It’s the perfect newbies’ guide to the benefits of HIT and why a short sharp burst of exercise is so much more effective than spending hours pounding cardio machines at the gym, plus it will teach you how to do it safely. It’s not just for beginners though – whatever your current fitness level, the authors have ideas you can incorporate into your workout regime.

We also love the tips towards the end of the book about when is the best time to exercise, how to stay motivated and how to get yourself up off that all-too-comfy couch.

In short, if there are ever periods when you struggle to fit fitness into your daily routine, then Fast Exercise is a vital aid to helping you squeeze in effective and safe high intensity workouts. Finally, less really does mean more!
