Fat Blasting Cardio for Women Who Don’t Jump


Jumping for many women, can be just plain uncomfortable.

Having had a baby, knee surgery, hip bursitis, and big boobs, I don’t jump to any great degree and I don’t ask my clients to jump. Fortunately, my personal experience and working with women of all sizes, ages, and physical abilities led to various versions of short burst cardio routines aka: High Intensity Intervals (HIIT) or Cardio for women who don’t jump.


Reasons you may not want to jump:

  • Knee, Hip, Ankle, Foot injury/discomfort/instability
  • Pelvic floor weakness or incontinence
  • Being Overweight
  • Large Breasts
  • Post-partum
  • Vertigo
  • Fear
  • Indifference

High Intensity Intervals are the best kind of cardio conditioning to create a hormone response in your body for fat loss because this style of workout creates the “after burn” effect or EPOC (excess post oxygen consumption), which is an increase in metabolism and calorie burning effect following this type of exercise.

The problem with most high intensity interval workout suggestions online is they usually involve incessant jumping in some way shape or form. These types of workouts instill fear in those of us with one or more of the above issues so we usually insist this type of workout is not for us.

But it is! At least it can be without the discomfort of unnecessary jumping.

I’ve created this HIIT workout video for you, and myself, so we can get in our fat blasting cardio workout without all the jumping around.
