High intensity interval training (HIIT) is here to stay. It’s an effective workout for fat loss, fitness and toning up. It works by alternating intense work periods with rest or recovery. I run a HIIT class on Saturday afternoons - see details here.
Here's why it's so effective:
It burns more calories in the same amount of time as slow, steady cardio.
Not only does HIIT help you to lose fat, it can also help you to build muscle/tone up at the same time.
It even continues to burn fat post workout as your body elevates it's metabolism whilst recovering from your workout.
It helps to improve your heart and lungs which will transfer into greater fitness even when doing more steady state aerobic training.
HIIT can make you feel good! You have to work hard for HIIT to be effective so once you’ve put in the effort you can feel a sense of acheivement (smug!) for the rest of the day!
HIIT can be fun! The class which I run uses ‘fun’ equipment such as prowlers, sleds, ropes and boxing bags. You are with a partner during the workout so you can encourage each other to work hard.
If you'd like to try HIIT for yourself come along to my class at Bounce on Saturday afternoons. For more info visit here. Booking essential and limited places.
