Tried this on holiday, and I loved it. Does anyone do it?

It's basically the exercise when you do 20 second bursts and 10 seconds rest - for 8 cycles.

It really suited me as I get so bored, and I have a better bod after only a week. Not sure where to continue in the uk as normal gyms don't see, to have these classes....

Haven't tried it but it sounds similar to Metafit and FT fit? I know "The Gym Group" do Tabata classes all over the UK.

There's an app that you can download on your phone

Just be a wee bit careful about your form when you are doing stuff quickly. Form is more important than reps if you don't want to knacker your knees.

I do a tabata class at my local gym and I totally love it.

We do the 20 min routine then a half hour toning/circuits session. It's full on and we're all pretty fit but usually end the routine with us all on our backs!
