Short on time and need an explosive workout? Then HIIT is for you! We dive into the three main benefits of HIIT classes.
You’ll burn a lot of calories in a short amount of time
Due to the nature of a HIIT class, the work to rest ratio is designed so you give your full effort in shorts bursts followed by even shorter periods of rest. The shock to the body and heart rate in each working phase will help you burn more calories than a traditional continuous workout.
You’ll continue to burn calories well after the workout has finished
HIIT can elevate your metabolism for hours after exercise. This results in additional calories being burned even after you have finished exercising. Known as excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC), it occurs when your body burns calories while healing the muscle fibres from the intense workout which also helps muscle growth.
You’ll work a range of muscle groups
Our two HIIT classes, Melt & Burn and Strength & Define, are designed to target different groups of muscles in the same workout. Unlike traditional workouts, you’ll leave after a 45-minute session knowing your entire body has felt the burn. Our Melt & Burn class focuses more on a cardio style approach while Strength & Define focuses on muscle growth and toning.
