BurpeesWhat is tabata?  High-intensity workout program that has both fitness and weight-loss benefits. It’s a very short workout with interval training.

Tabatas consist of intervals;  20 seconds “on”, where you do a full body exercise with as much effort as you can, and then 10 quick seconds of rest before you go right back into action. Repeat this pattern for a set time period (typically a short time period) and reap the many rewards of Tabata workouts.
