Interval Training

Challenge yourself

High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is an exercise strategy alternating periods of short intense anaerobic exercise with less intense recovery periords. These short, intense workouts (30-45 minutes) provide improved athletic capacity, conditioning and fat burning.

As an added benefit of this workout style, there’s also an afterburn effect known as EPOC (excess-post exercise oxygen consumption). You increase your metabolism and burn more calories for up to 24 hours after interval training, whereas going for a jog burns almost NO calories after.

Build strength and burn calories in less than an hour!
High Intensity Interval Training is a training technique in which you give all-out, one hundred percent effort through quick, intense bursts of exercise, followed by short recovery periods.
