This class is a HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) workout. We’ll incorporate moves that require short bursts of energy. It’s appropriate for every fitness level and modifications are always available. HIIT workouts are fantastic because the intense moves rev up the metabolism by not immediately allowing the body to return to the normal rate of expenditure. Instead, it slowly normalizes itself over the next hours and sometime even days (depending on the intensity of the workout). While it’s returning to normal, you get the benefit of burning calories at a higher rate than normal – even while you’re just sitting around. It only takes 15-30 mins. No excuses.
