HIIT stands for High Intensity Interval Training and it a generic term to describe an exercise class which uses a range of bodyweight exercises with a work interval and rest interval. These classes tend to last between 30-40 minutes including a warm up and stretch at the end.
Good for burning calories when you don't have a lot of time.
Classes are fun and hard work !
Typical calories burned: 500
These classes are primarily designed to help people increase their fitness and muscle tone/strength using body weight exercises. In general everyone can attend this class, except those who are suffering with any orthopaedic condition or injury.
I love teaching Hcore Lean, it's a great way of developing your fitness without putting too much strain on your joints and generally is a shorter class so you get the work done quicker !
Although HIIT means 'high intensity interval training' this doesn't mean the exercises have to be high impact (which can be damaging to joints). The routines I use, are adapted for everyone to enjoy working out with limited time. The routines normally last approximately 30 mins including a warm and cool down/stretch, so they are very time saving - NO EXCUSES !!
Cost: £8 per class (or free to monthly members)
