Circuit training is one the greatest ways to get in shape.  It not only combines all elements of a training program in 1 hour, but for the average person, who has a million and one things to do in a day, it is time efficient.  One of the many benefits trainers use a circuit program for is weight loss.  This style of training which includes weight training and cardio has been proven to shed the pounds because it maintains an elevated heart rate, gives you a full body workout and recommended cardio in a shorter amount of time, and constantly keeps you moving so you don’t have time to rest and chat in between your sets.  Here is a sample program that I would prescribe to an intermediate client.
