Gym class

I can never push myself as hard as an instructor does, so doing a class is at the top of my list for fat burning. – Michelle Hayward, pro kitesurfer

Tabata

High-intensity training

Besides my javelin programme, I also do boxing, CrossFit and S.W.E.A.T. 1000 and when my programme is not too full, AMPT (a gym in Joburg that focuses on high-intensity interval training). These are very high intensity cardio workouts and I burn a lot of kilojoules during each session. – Sunette Viljoen, Olympic javelin thrower
