After getting slowly back into running over the last month I decided it was time to step it up a notch in today’s run by sprinting up a hill a few times. Having done so I wish I had done it earlier. There can’t be a better type of aerobic training to increase fitness, lose fat and tone up. One of the great things about hill sprints is that anybody from an Olympic athlete to a couch potato can do them. Whether you are training for a marathon, a hit of tennis, running around the football field or even just to get fit it’s a great workout that gives fantastic results. If you want to get fit and shift some excess pounds quickly then hill sprints are tailor made for you.
