HIIT (30min class)
Looking for something faster paced to add to your workout? High-intensity interval training (HIIT), a cardiorespiratory training that incorporates intervals of fast-paced training followed by periods of rest, increases the overall intensity of your workout in a much shorter time. Most workouts are done at a moderate pace, but HIIT workouts involve exertion levels that range from levels one through 10. These exercises are done anywhere from 10 seconds to five minutes. This is a great way to boost your heart rate, burn those calories, and get in shape while spending less time in the gym.
