H.I.I.T. Sculpt & Stretch

hiit picHigh intensity interval training, core strength, and deep stretching, all in one hour. H.I.I.T. burns more fat in less time while preserving your lean muscle, and it’s not just for elite athletes. Anyone can add intervals that are intense (for them) to a workout and the benefits are tremendous!* We’ll spend about 20 minutes, after warming up, doing intense intervals of cardio and strength exercises (10-90 seconds) interspersed with light movement or rest, allowing you to tap into a higher intensity than you’d normally be able to reach. The high demand, even for short bursts, creates positive metabolic changes far beyond a steady state work. This equates to more fat being used for energy, more muscle tissue preservation, a longer after-burn, and you getting in better shape. H.I.I.T. has even been shown to improve symptoms of Diabetes, Parkinson’s, and COPD!

*If you haven’t exercised at all in a long time, having a base level of fitness such as some consistent walks a few times a week for a few weeks is recommended first.
