High Intensity Interval Training For Maximum Fat Loss
A great way to start the weekend. This class combines interval training with strength training using a kettlebell. It is fun and varied with something different every week. Suitable for all levels of fitness with modifications and progressions.
What is HIIT Training?
When most people think of cardio, they think of long, boring jogs, or endless hours on cardio machines.But there's a method of cardio that takes much less time and is far superior to jogging to help you burn fat. Its called High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) and will take your body to a new fitness level.
Benefits of a HIIT Class
Super-efficient HIIT is the ideal workout for a busy schedule. The main workout is only about 20-30 minutes long. It gets results fast so it's an ideal class to do if you want to get into shape quickly for an up coming event. Research shows you can achieve more progress in a mere 15 minutes of interval training than the girl jogging on the treadmill for an hour. Just 2 weeks of high-intensity intervals improves your aerobic capacity as much as 6 to 8 weeks of endurance training.
2. Burn More Fat:
Not only do you burn more calories during a HIIT workout, but the effect of all that intense exertion kicks your bodys repair cycle into overdrive. That means you burn more fat and calories in the 24 hours after a HIIT workout than you do after, say, a steady-pace run.
3. Healthier Heart:
Most people aren't used to pushing into the anaerobic zone (that lovely place where you can't breathe and you feel like your heart is trying to jump out of your chest). But in this case, extreme training produces extreme results.
4. Lose Fat, Not Muscle:
Anyone who has been on a diet knows that it's hard to not lose muscle mass along with fat. While steady state cardio seems to encourage muscle loss, studies show that both weight training and HIIT workouts allow dieters to preserve their hard-earned muscles while ensuring most of the weight lost comes from fat stores. Win/win!
5. Increase Metabolism:
In addition to increased fat burning and more muscle preserved, HIIT stimulates production of your human growth hormone (HGH) by up to 450% during the 24 hours after you finish your workout. This is great news since HGH is not only responsible for increased caloric burn but also slows down the aging process, making you younger both inside and out!
6. Using a Kettlebell:
If you have ever worked with Kettlebells before, you know that they can provide a very intense workout in a little amount of time. With this class format I have combined these two powerhouse training styles to create one quick and effective calorie-burning workout. We mix up body weight exercises with cardio and strength training to create an all over body programme that really WORKS!
Anyone can do this class. You don't have to be fit to start that will come. There is no pressure and all participants are encouraged to take it at their own pace and modifications are always given to help keep you going. I am a very motivating instructor so you will love this class...and its effect!
