High-intensity interval training combines very short bursts of vigorous exercise with even shorter recovery work or rests. Due to the often-extreme levels of exertion during the active phases, HIIT sessions typically last less than 30 minutes; as such they're an extremely time-efficient way to get fit and rev up your calorie burn. Nobody wants to spend hours sweating in the gym on a hot summer's day, which is why a regular HIIT session is just what you need to put a spring in your step over the next couple of months – and hopefully beyond.
Stand up paddleboarding is one of the fastest growing water sports for so many reasons and it is becoming increasingly accessible on watersports holidays.

You’ll most certainly build up your tan and look even more radiant on and off the water. Being around large bodies of water can be incredibly calming, therefore paddling along while soaking up the natural surroundings is meditative.
