We’ve all been there - feeling like we’ve got the world by the medicine balls. It’s a great feeling! Healthy eating - check. Consistent workouts - check.  Working toward personal goals - check. Generally feeling pretty bad ass. Life is going pretty dang well, and we’re digging it.

*Play the reel of you high fiving yourself.*

It doesn’t take much for that feeling of killing it to come to a screeching halt. Cue the long business trip, family visiting from out of town or the week-long beach vacay where you consumed more pina coladas than your body weight. Life happens (as it should!) It’s all part of the journey.  

We know there’s nothing quite like getting ALTR’d in the ALTR studio. Sweaty high fives from the ALTR Army, those beats, the group mojo and hanging on to every word waiting to hear the sweet, sweet sounds of “3-2-1 Rest." Absolutely. We love it too.  

But life’s adventures await you, right? One thing that doesn’t have to be sacrificed when you’re on your journey is your HIIT workout. This afterburn effect is yours for the taking. Let’s HIIT the road Jack.
