There’s an inner yogi inside of all of us, and what better place to find him or her than in the comfort of new homes in Calgary?

HIIT (high intensity interval training) is a short workout that requires quick bursts of energy with even quicker resting periods that help you burn a ton of fat and calories. The great thing about HIIT exercises is that they don’t require a huge time investment, and for the most part, you can get away without needing any equipment. The great thing about HIIT workouts is you don’t need a ton of space to do them – participants can readily fulfil their exercise regimen comfortably from within new townhomes in Calgary.


It’s difficult to measure in terms of calories how many you’ll burn when walking or running – however, the more exaggerated your walk or run, the more calories you’re going to inevitably burn. At a minimum, you should aim to hit at least 10,000 steps per day which will help you burn anywhere from 250 to 600 calories per day. You can use smart phone apps that are built-in or rely on trusty smartphone accessories to keep a tally. Take advantage of the lovely trails around Calgary and bask in the great outdoors while maintaining a safe distance.
