FACT CHECKED BY Alexa Mellardo

Starting your morning off right is crucial for a productive, positive day. If you're looking for a game-changer in your morning routine to kickstart your day with a surge of energy, high-intensity interval training (HIIT) might be your perfect ally. This dynamic and time-efficient workout not only revs up your metabolism but also provides a sustained boost in energy levels throughout the day. This is the #1 HIIT workout to do every morning for all-day energy. I recommend it to my clients for boundless energy from sunrise to sunset.

This HIIT workout, which I like to call "The Morning Metabolism Igniter," serves as the ultimate morning metabolism igniter, setting the tone for a day filled with solid energy and increased productivity. Remember to start at your own pace, practice proper form, and gradually increase the intensity as your fitness level improves.

Gear up to engage multiple muscle groups, elevate your heart rate, and stimulate your cardiovascular system, setting the stage for a day filled with vitality and productivity. The key is to perform each exercise with maximum effort during the high-intensity intervals, followed by short periods of rest to recover and prepare for the next burst of activity.
