For the past 15 years, Patrick Striet has run a fitness training facility where he has worked with hundreds of everyday men and women—working moms, college students, senior citizens, middle-aged men, and more (plus a few elite athletes). Through this experience, he has identified the barriers most people face when it comes to exercising consistently—lack of time, lack of results, injuries, boredom—and specifically designed the 60-Second Sweat to address them.
The 60-Second Sweat is:
The 60-Second Sweat
combines HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) with MRT (Metabolic Resistance Training) to build strength along with cardiovascular fitness in one comprehensive workout.
Research has shown that HIIT is more effective than traditional steady-state workouts for building cardiovascular fitness and shedding fat, while MRT builds muscular fitness, which is key for boosting metabolism.
Keeping in mind the cranky knees, aching backs, stiff shoulders, and sore necks that many desk-bound adults face, the 60-Second Sweat
gives equal weight to every muscle group.
You will never perform the same exercise or activity for more than 1 minute, so you will never get bored. Every exercise, set, rep…every minute…will help develop the best and fittest you!
Bottom line: the days of inefficient, archaic, time-consuming, unsafe, and impractical fitness workouts are over. Based on the most up-to-date principles in modern exercise science, the 60-Second Sweat is a program, not just a workout. If you want to be able to hit the slopes, play in your company softball tournament, feel confident in your swimsuit . . . or just keep up with your kids and get up off the floor without a challenge . . . then you need the 60-Second Sweat. The programs in this book will help you attain phenomenal and sustainable fitness, safely and realistically—1 minute at a time.
