Treadmill Tough Guy

After trying out Orange Theory last week, I became fascinated with intervals on the treadmill. It really got my heart rate up, and forced me to push myself, rather than to just truck along at the same pace for 30 minutes where I focus on a television, instead of my heart rate.

I began researching this training trend and found a great way to burn 300 calories in 30 minutes!
