Why HIIT Train?
HIIT stands for High Intensity Interval Training. HIIT is a form of cardiovascular training that alternates between short bursts of intense anaerobic exercises paired with less intense recovery periods. HIIT workouts provide improved athletic capacity as well as improved glucose metabolism. This workout will help you work on your coordination and explosive performance, while also testing stability and balance.

BECAUSE HIIT TRAINING IS INHERENTLY A VERY INTENSE FORM OF EXERCISE (YOU ARE WORKING AT CLOSE TO MAX EFFORT DURING THE INTERVALS) IT IS NOT IDEAL FOR BEGINNERS. IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT YOU HAVE A GOOD CARDIOVASCULAR BASE AND FOUNDATIONAL UNDERSTANDING ON PROPER FORM AND TECHNIQUE FOR STRENGTH EXERCISES BEFORE STARTING THIS TYPE OF TRAINING. IF YOU ARE UNSURE IF IT IS RIGHT FOR YOU, PLEASE CHECK WITH YOUR DOCTOR OR TRAINER FIRST.
