(HealthDay News) -- Circuit training offers a fast-paced exercise regimen that moves quickly between different stations designed to work different areas of your body.

The American Council on Exercise explains why it's a good choice:

  • Circuit training combines both cardiovascular and strengthening exercises in one workout.
  • Because there are so many different exercises, it helps prevent boredom.
  • It burns a high amount of calories.
  • You can mix and match exercises to create a nearly endless variation.
  • It allows for flexibility and creativity in designing your workout.
