  3. Interval workouts are what gets my butt out of bed before a busy day of work and busy evening with kids. Your interval workouts captured my attention before Christmas (2013) and have got me pumped to check the site every morning and night to see what my next workout is going to look like. Not only have the workouts held my interest but the results I'm seeing are AMAZING! Thanks for your commitment to all us people who love to workout from home.

  7. These work out tricks and tips are the best ways to reduce the tummy. But people still find tummy tuck surgery the most easy and convenient way to cut off the extra fat on their body. I found this post quite informative! :)

  14. I appreciate that you take the time out of the day to keep your blog fresh and up-to-date. I'm usually an avid gym-goer, but recently, it's been feeling like old news. I enjoy your home-workout training method and I feel like I've been getting greater, more realistic and transferable to day-to-day life results by exercising outside of the gym! Thanks, Melissa!

  34. I discovered your free workouts towards the end of last year as I was looking for workouts that was challenging but doable and yours were some of the best so far. I've been following your workout since and I'm loving it! I love the fact that it's short and I can incorporate it in my busy day. I love interval workouts because it's quick, I can repeat it as much as I want or add in another interval from a different workout. I love the fact that you break it down so well for us to follow. Thank you!

  41. I love interval training because with them u can reach the maximum burn in a short time as opposed to training for hours at your pace. I always push myself very hard within each interval, having timer I am more disciplined and take rest only when my 10 seconds is up. NO slacking in between. Last and not least I love the sweaty beast I am afterwards these interval workouts. Oh, and there is no better sound to my ear then the last beep, ding dong sound or her saying workout complete, I feel like I can conquer the world.

  48. Internal training is my favorite when focusing on strenght training. I like to spend most of my time running when I exercise, however, I know I need strength training to remain injury free. Interval training has been effective in getting the job done. :)

  49. Interval training is a great way for me to fit in short but effective workouts when I get home from a 12-hour work day!! I have come to enjoy them even on my days off because they are so much more effective than spending an hour in the gym! :)

  51. Hi Melissa, my first comment didn't post - so trying again. I've run marathons and an ultramarathon in the past - lots of LONG SLOW miles. Then I started working out with you a year and a half ago and am now in the best shape of my life. HIIT workouts are amazing because they're fun, fast, and challenging! I'm focusing more on speed in my running these days too, and am using interval training. Thanks for sharing your videos, you're such an inspiration to me! -Melissa J.
