Hey Chicks,

This week on the podcast we interview the awesome Mindy Mylrea. Mindy  is the 2016 Empower Instructor of the Year, 2015 PFP Trainer of the Year. 2015 International Presenter of the Year, 2013 CanFitPro Specialty Presenter of the Year, 2008 ECA OBOW Fitness Presenter of the Year, the 2004 Can Fit Pro International Presenter of the Year, the 1999 International IDEA Fitness Instructor of the Year, a National and World Aerobic Champion, an AVIA sponsored athlete, and a five star presenter for IDEA. She is also an advisory board member for Oxygen Magazine, an international presenter, author, motivational speaker, video personality, and CEC provider for both ACE and AFAA.

Mindy is the creator and lead talent behind Gliding , the Gliding discs exercise program. She is a master trainer and on the pro development team for Schwinn Cycling, Body Bar, and Bosu.

She is the creator of Tabata Bootcamp that earned Most Impactful Program of 2013, and owner of FitFlix Productions DVD production services. She has authored numerous articles and stars in over 400 instructional videos. Mindy is currently the host of Orbitrek Elite and 6 minutes to slim it  infomercials.

In this episode, we cover:

  • Nutrition and how important it is to optimal health
  • Why Mindy loves Tabata training and why you should too
  • How to get an effective workout in 4 minutes
  • The proper use of Tabata and its protocol
  • How the afterburn really works for High Intensity Interval Training
  • Learn how long you will burn fat and calories after your workout
  • Hear about Mindy’s Tabata experiment first hand
  • Learn how to “work in” vs working out
  • Mindy compares Tabata training to having a baby

3 Key Points:

  1. You can have an effective workout in 4 minutes if you push your limits and max out each movement with Tabata training. Gone is the mindset of needing an hour to get your sweat on.
  2. Finding balance with your diet is just as important as finding balance with your workouts. Follow a plan that works for you to achieve optimal eating and health.
  3. Using High Intensity interval training (HIIT) every day is not as effective as using it a couple of times per week. If done properly, you most likely will be too exhausted to do them effectively the following day, so aim for that. Aim for using them to their maximum so you can use your alternate days for recovery.
