How to Start HIIT When You’re Out of Shape

Have you heard about High Interval Intensity Training (HIIT) and wanted to try it, but thought you were too out of shape? False! Anyone can benefit from HIIT, no matter their fitness level or weight.

What is HIIT?

 HIIT is a workout where short bursts of high intensity exercises (as in, you’re giving 85% – 90% effort) are alternated with short periods of low intensity activity or rest.

What’s so great about HIIT?

Where do we start? HIIT is a great way to get a highly effective workout in a short amount of time. Typical HIIT workouts range from 15-30 minutes. Other benefits include:

  • HIIT is one of the best fat-burning workouts out there. Many people see results quickly.
  • HIIT keeps your heartrate up, making it a great cardio workout.
  • HIIT speeds your metabolism, so you’ll keep burning calories after your workout is complete.
  • HIIT can be done anywhere. (If you can’t get to our studio, you can do our exercises at home!)

How do I get started?

 
Decide you want to start. It’s that easy. We have friendly, knowledgeable trainers on-site all the time who can show you how to move through the workout and reach your goal.

What else should I know?

 
To see results, An HIIT workout requires real effort. You’ll sweat, and you’ll be sore as your body gets used to the regimen. Move at your own pace and build up gradually. Taking care of your whole body before and after a workout can help you get the most out of your training and recover more quickly between sessions. We have supplements to support your overall well-being, and a number of specialty and enhanced juices to help your body recover after your workout.
