The New York Times did a great overview of research showing that 1 minute of high intensity exercise had similar health benefits as 45 minutes of moderate exertion.

This is also why the Quantify Fitness method works! Using high intensity resistance training on ARX, the most effective exercise equipment on the planet, you can get a strength and cardio workout that rivals other time-consuming programs in only 10 minutes per week!
