Yes, there is nothing so over as the holidays and when you are ready to burn off the holiday fruitcake, eggnog and sugar cookies. How about taking it up a notch and trying a high intensity interval workout? High intensity intervals not only yield results, they give the motto, “Work harder not longer,” true meaning.  You don’t have to burn up hours in the gym to burn off your post holiday sluggishness, just try a HIIT workout!
