We love the Tabata protocol for quick, efficient workouts. The simple structure, 20-second intense intervals followed by 10 seconds rest for four minutes, means you can really push yourself. Not only do you build strength, but you burn more calories during and after your workout. Try two rounds of Tabata with Equinox trainer Dana McCaw. Press play for the warmup and workout. And, of course, to sweat.

  1. iv been looking for some exercise that is not so fast pace n love how this gives u just that. going to try this. n where did u buy ur shirts? the 2 on the corners I would really like a shirt that doesn't keep going down on u on ur chest when u workout.

  2. Maybe Tabata is supposed to be done at q quicker pace, but the pace of this video suits me just fine. I also like that you provide a warm up which a lot of 7 minute workouts don't do. It's always good to warm up before an intense work out.

  3. hey anna I want to thank you for being so motivating and supplying great workouts for everyone! ! I have a question, I need some advice on what sneakers are best for cross training and running that give support and shock absorption for hiits. I need a neutral sneaker thats cushioning. I really appreciate your feedback or anyone else who sees this. thanks so much. god bless☺

  4. I'm tired of being the "smart" one.
    I'm ready to be the "hot" one!
    Remember ladies: men don't like smart women with great personalities, they like hot sexy chicks who LOOK good.
    I've heard these kinds of exercises really do work!

  5. The nice thing about such a simple workout is that you can memorize the few moves and take it anywhere! Like overseas, should the internet suck in your hotel 🙂
