Hello! We are Chelsea Harrison & Mel Breitkreutz of HIITit.ca 12 Minute Workouts!
We are busy, working moms, each with 2 small children. Chelsea is a Registered Nurse in the Cardiac ICU, and Mel has a background of Personal Training and entrepreneurship, with HIITit.ca being her third start-up business. We have always been committed to being healthy and fit, but in more recent years have found it such a challenge to be active and working out on a daily basis. Trying gyms, home gyms, childcare, running, cycling with kids, you name it to get a good daily workout in, we both turned to HIIT exercise because it was quick, required no equipment and could be done from anywhere (High Intensity Interval Training).
After both of us got on our way with a daily HIIT workout, we realized that this was our answer to getting an awesome, kick-butt, FUN, & QUICK workout in on a daily basis in the midst of busy lives, that actually would bring results!!!
Both feeling & seeing changes, along with having so much fun with the HIIT style of working out, we knew that we could not keep this amazing way of working out to ourselves!! We could think of so many friends & family off the top of our heads who would benefit & love this style of working out and we wanted to share our new love. Being best friends & just natural work partners, we came up with the idea of providing 12 minute HIIT workouts to women all around the world via online workouts that would be emailed out daily. Jumping through a boat-load of hoops, establishing our business HIIT it Kelowna, bringing HIITit.ca to life, enrolling with Canadian Fitness Education Services, registering with the BCRPA, completing the Canadian Weight Training Certification and CFES Personal Training Certification, the rest is history. Receiving daily emails of lives that are being changed with just 12 minutes a day, we could absolutely not be happier with our decision to start this business. If you are new to HIIT, we warmly invite you to step in to possibly one of the best decisions of your life. It has absolutey been for us and hundreds of others now working out daily with HIITit.ca. No more excuses!!!! We want you in on the excitement of getting in to the best shape of your life.
Our very best to you in health & fitness!!! Chelsea & Mel
