Tabata training is a high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workout, featuring exercises that last four minutes. Tabata training was discovered by Japanese scientist Dr. Izumi Tabata and a team of researchers from the National Institute of Fitness and Sports in Tokyo.

Westwood's version of the workout consists of 15 exercises, with a one minute break in between! Each exercise is performed 8 times, with 20 seconds of work and 10 seconds of rest.
This year is special because we are hoping to accomplish 2 MAJOR GOALS.
