Extensive science and research validate that total body workouts, with intervals of High Intensity Training (HIT) that include both resistance and cardio, are the most effective. HIT involves performing an all-out, exhaustive physical effort for a short time followed by a short, sometimes active, recovery. HIT works because burning fat requires oxygen, and the more oxygen gets inside your body, the more fat your body burns.

A high-intensity workout increases your body’s need for oxygen during the effort and creates an oxygen shortage, causing your body to ask for more oxygen during recovery. This afterburn effect is referred to as Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption (EPOC) and is the reason why intense exercise will help burn more fat and calories than regular aerobic and steady-state workouts and translates into a metabolism boost for up to 48 hours after a completed HIT routine.

When high intensity and interval training are combined, the result is maximum increased metabolic rate, optimal muscle building and muscle retention coupled with fat loss and increased calorie burn during and after the workout. HIT with intervals taxes both aerobic and anaerobic fitness; however, cardio only addresses aerobic. Aerobic fitness increases your need for oxygen and anaerobic builds muscle.

Our classes will increase your endurance AND make you stronger at the same time. Studies indicate as little as 27 minutes of HIT three times per week produces the same anaerobic and aerobic improvement as 60 minutes of steady state cardio five times per week, so you can put some more .me time back in your life!
