So many people seem so focused on the 20 minute circuit or whatever which I don't understand. 20 minute workouts do not get you in shape. I don't know who these gyms are trying to fool. Same thing with the infomercials.
What do you mean?

20 minutes of high intensity interval work like you are doing is a lot more effective than 45 minutes walking on a treadmill. Of course, you have to be able to walk on a treadmill before you can do the high intensity stuff.
