Circuit training isn’t by any means a new workout, but it’s definitely getting tons of attention lately in the fitness community, and for good reason. Circuit training is a high-intensity series of movements that last between 30 seconds to a minute, with short breaks between. The movements can be cardio, strength training, and plyometrics, but the best circuits usually involved a little bit of each to seriously kick your butt.

If you’re looking to give your exercise routine a much-needed reboot, or you’re ready to stop donating monthly payments to the gym and try something new, read on to find out why circuit training might be exactly what you need.

1. Total Body Workout

You can kiss 2-hour grueling cardio sessions goodbye and get the body you crave with something as simple as 30-minute circuit training sessions 2-3 times per week. No matter how you structure your circuit, the nature of circuit training means you get a full-body workout in way less time than it would take to hit every muscle group on the gym machines. If you’re just starting out or are looking for a comprehensive workout, circuit training will touch on everything, including your upper and lower body, core, heart and lungs for total body fitness.

2. Spark Your Metabolism

You’ve probably heard of metabolism, that tricky little process whereby your body breaks down food and converts it to energy. Most of us desperately want a faster metabolism to help us lose weight—and, if we’re being honest, eat more food.

Circuit training can boost your metabolism better than a longer endurance-style workout and torch more calories overall. Plus, your heart rate continuously spikes and lowers, making your heart work a lot harder than it would during a steady workout, which can help you continue to burn calories even after the workout is done (like a gift that keeps on giving!).

3. Revamp Your Workouts

One of the best reasons to try circuit training? It’s a refreshing way to work out that never leavesyou bored, unchallenged, or simply “going through the motions”. Every circuit can be completely unique so that you get a different workout each time and achieve an important mind-body connection that you don’t get with 30 minutes on the bike reading up on the latest Kardashian scandal. Plus, you save so much more time than if you’re standing around waiting for machinesoron a partner to finish their reps, leaving you ample time to get the perfect gym selfie.

Amazing information! I did bodybuilding for 20 + Years. 3 hours at the gym to 1 hour. Love it! And God convicted me of making the gym my god. So much happier now to have a balance. Your circuit training method is perfect! Hiking and circuit trading are all I need. Thank you so much for all you do…
