found this on the whats good for you website.

might have to give it a try!! says to sprint (on bike, running, cross trainer etc) for 8 seconds, then go slowly for 12 seconds. aparently it helps you lose more fat.

yeah she hasnt been around for a very long time... i remember she incorporated her crosstrainer into it. when i started running id run between two power poles then walk 2 then run then walk. its a great way to start off, not sure what affect it has to weightloss though :P

interval training - it's supposed to increase weightloss. In all honesty, it probably may well be more effective than just the 1 speed thing, but IMHO whatever you do it's better than nothing!
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!
