    Ooh, nice find!

    My only objection would be to recommend intervals after a base period of slow running/biking/rowing, etc. to avoid injury and burnout.

    from a health standpoint and athletic performance standpoint, HIIT is great..

    purely for weight management, its not much better than low intensity cardio.
