    That was the most intense Kit Rich workout I've experienced here on Popsugar. I am sweating buckets and not feeling guilty that I didn't go on my Sunday run. I am grateful for many things and your workouts are on my list!

    Just completed this workout. Takes a lot to make me sweat and my forehead was dripping. Also, I burned 202 calories and considering I was not working out at 100% because I'm super stiff I can only imagine what it would be like if that were not the case.

    This was intense. Just a note that it wasn't HIIT, which is what I was expecting when the words High Intensity were in the title. There were no 10-20 second breaks that I look forward to with HIIT. It had several unique moves, and was definitely total body. I liked the reverse lunge flying into warrior three. I also appreciated the standing pike, as I have diastasis recti, and can't do crunches on the floor. I had to modify the one armed down dog into reverse fly, as it was rough on my shoulders. Overall, it was a good work out.

    This workout came out the day I started working out. I just did this workout with no modifications for the first time and burned 290 calories. Truly grateful for this workout, the motivation, and the positivity that comes with actual self-care.

  • Michelle Hogarth

    Thanks Kit do enjoy your workouts another secret killer. One of my favs from you. Loved it being high intensity and quicker paced than some of your others. Love the popsugar classes too.
    Loving the full body weight fusion ones for whole body. Prefer those over targeted workouts as I do one every day and a full body means I can confidently go on with day knowing I’ve hit every muscle....
    also just a personal preference but not as much a fan of your home live workouts, do prefer your studio environments- I feel a little more like being part of a class since I do home workouts instead of joining a gym... so love the ones you have done in the group studio and the ones on pop sugar... so keep those coming please...
    Quick paced, high intensity cardio fusion full body workouts definitely my favs from you.
    I know your busy, but would love more of these. Thanks Kit.

    Bitch this exercise had me breathing HEAVY! I'm muscular and don't do much cardio besides treadmill because I don't wanna lose weight, but I just realised that I'm not really fit and I should also include more cardio in my workouts. Thanks a lot.

    Man, I love this workout! Kit is such a nice trainer and the workout is fire. You're gonna love it. Just remember that it's okay to stop when you get tired because we're all at different phases in our fitness journey. So when you get tired, just remember why you're working out in the first place and keep going!💪

    Kit is fantastic! This workout went by so quickly and kicked my butt. I burned about 300 calories with this video. Kit is so encouraging, and I love her unique exercises. There is quite a bit of jumping in this video, so I would not recommend it for those with joint problems

    There's no question that this is a great workout, I've done it 3 times now! I just wish she had better rhythm in her directions. For such compound moves with 3 to 4 individual moves within, better verbal direction would really help us uncoordinated people out!
