5 fitness tips to boost metabolism
If you have ever wondered how fitness can shift your metabolism, move you through a plateau and speed up your fat burning potential you are going to enjoy these simple tips to help you reach your goals on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.
Here are 5 fitness tips to help speed up your metabolism!
1. Grow some muscles
Muscle burns more calories than fat and according to science, weight training is the fastest and simplest way to develop metabolically active muscle tissue in the body. Exercises with higher repetitions and lower weights will allow your body to experience the benefits of muscle gain without added stress on the body. Check the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge app for workouts targeting these areas.
2. Utilize HIIT workouts
Performing exercises of higher intensity for shorter periods of time and short rest breaks in between is a quick and easy way to burn fat and increase your metabolism. HIIT (high-intensity interval training) workouts burn the same amount of calories in half the time as long, endurance based workouts. You’ll find some on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge app.

3. Keep moving
Science is showing us more and more that movement throughout the day helps to increase the heart rate and develop strength. Outside of your scheduled workouts, try incorporating short bursts of movement throughout your day. Take the stairs instead of the elevator, walk to the store instead of driving or find a way to add a little more movement into your week.
4. Reduce workout time
If you’re still performing long cardiovascular workouts on a low intake of calories, this could be eating away at your active lean muscle. Your lean muscle is important for increasing your metabolism to burn more calories. Kick the long, endurance style cardio and take up some short bursts of exercise. They are focused on intensity, not time and are far more effective at promoting metabolic boosting hormones and increasing fat burning potential in the body.
On our 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge App we have Tabata workout videos where you can BURN FAT IN UNDER 4 MINUTES. We have videos for beginners and more advanced too.
Tabata consists of higher intensity exercise performed in short bursts with even shorter rest periods.
You can find these workouts under the excise tab on our 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge app.
5. Take time out
Good recovery and rest are often more important than exercising. It is during periods of rest that your body does most of its fat burning. So give yourself something back and allow yourself ample rest and recovery. Remember by doing this you are allowing your body to increase metabolism and burn more fat!
