HIIT – Fad or Real?

High Intensity Interval Training or HIIT – fad or real?

HIIT is a workout that includes various intervals structured in a way to ensure you get maximum benefits from your workout in a short amount of time.


Not for the inexperienced, HIIT:

  1. Builds endurance
  2. Boosts metabolism
  3. Builds muscle while losing fat fast – steady cardio often only provides the latter
  4. Improves your cardiovascular health – it’s easier to push your body to a high level in short bursts than over a prolonged period of time
  5. Burns calories for hours after class ends. Steady cardio only burns calories while you are running or cycling. As soon as you stop, you also stop burning calories.
  6. Is never boring!

So…fad or real? REAL!

Find this out for yourself by signing up for High Intensity Interval Training with Resistance (HIIT-R).
