HIIT or High-intensity interval training remains to be one of the most popular workouts since it became a trend a few years ago. If you are ready to take on a challenge and want to significantly reduce fat mass of the whole body, this is a class you should consider.
What is HIIT?
HIIT is a cardiovascular exercise that switches up between short periods of intense exercise with fewer recovery periods. It is a form of exercise where you will exert 100% effort in quick bursts followed by short recovery periods. The reason being you burn more calories in a short space of time than other workouts. The aim is to get your heart rate up as quickly as possible rather than toning a particular muscle group.
The class is a fast-paced, friendly and fun environment that combines sets of bodyweight exercises with heart-pumping cardio. You will perform a series of anaerobic exercises like sprinting for between 20 seconds to 40 seconds at a time. Our Gym Plus HIIT instructors will help keep you motivated to the very end.
This is a fitness class we recommend for those who have been actively exercising for a few months. The reason for this is your body will be properly conditioned to take the high impact from the intense exercises. This exercise will challenge you physically and mentally but you will see fantastic results after only a few sessions.
What are the benefits of HIIT?
HIIT has been shown to reduce the fat mass of the whole body as well as tone muscle and maintain weight. Another benefit is it can boost your metabolism, meaning you can continue to burn calories long after your workout has finished.
HIIT can also help your build better endurance and stamina, helping you push your limits and perform better in other exercises or sports. This is the perfect exercise for those who want to increase their cardiovascular fitness and push their body to maximal effort.
