HIIT workouts to do at home or when traveling

As I am always on the road traveling, visiting family, traveling for work or otherwise. I make sure to still sweat and move each day. I have compiled some of my favorite HIIT workouts so you can quit the excuses and get into the good vibes with ease.

Here are short and sweet workouts that will help to burn fat, get your heart rate up and build strength.

1. 25 minutes – Ultimate HIIT Workout For People Who Get Bored Easily – Fitness Blender

This video hosts a different exercise for every single interval, it’s an interesting one for those who get bored of workouts and want to do more than just go through the motions.

This one is intense and you’ll get a feeling of joy, relief, and as one user joked, ‘the sudden urge to cry’ once it’s complete. With an estimated maximum calories of 360 burnt in just 25 minutes, it’s a brilliant fat-burner for the more experienced.

Focus: Legs

Equipment needed: None

Experience Level: Advanced

2. 15 Minutes – Fat Burner HIIT Workout – Joe Wicks

Follow along with the king of HIIT in an intense workout that’ll blitz your entire body with a focus on your core and legs. With quite a few technical movements such as jump lunges, mountain climbers and high knees we suggest going for another workout if you suffer from knee pain or injuries.

Focus: Core & Legs

Equipment needed: None

Experience Level: Intermediate

3. 20 Minute HIIT Workout (Knee Friendly) – Mfit

One of my favorite low-impact workouts on YouTube, a HIIT workout without jumping or any moves strenuous on the knees. But in the words of bubbly trainer, Molly, ‘no jumping does not mean easy’.

Focus: Legs, shoulders & arms

Equipment needed: Lightweights (5kg or below)

Experience level: Beginner

4. 30 Minutes – Body Weight Circuit – Rejuvage

Fitness expert, Colette Pienaar talks through a simple but effective circuit to work your entire body, with a focus on legs. Complete the cycle 3 – 4 times, or as many as you can handle before fatigue.

5. 15 Minutes – Leg Slimming Pilates Butt & Thigh Workout – Fitness Blender

A workout which focuses specifically on the thigh and butt. By the time you’ve finished your legs and glutes will feel like jelly. With some more technical movements, such as heel taps at the end, we’ve labelled this one as intermediate, but beginners are welcome to try as there’s a very low risk of injury with this workout.

Focus: Legs & Glutes

Equipment needed: Mat

Experience level: Intermediate

6. 30 Minutes – Strength Training – JessicaSmithTV

Get stronger with Jessica Smith’s workout guide for strength. She takes you through compound movements for the main part to focus on building the larger muscle groups. Before you know it you’ll find the weights starting to get easier as your strength improves.

A quick fat-burning HIIT session in a format we absolutely love by Group HIIT, with clear timers indicating how long your workout has left. Expect your abs to be burning afterwards!
