Frustrated with the lack of or speed of results from your current regime? Are you ready for the ultimate challenge to maximise the benefits in minimal time?
Join our new 45 minute HIIT Cycle Bootcamp on Wednesdays at 6.30pm with Nadine
High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is an enhanced form of training alternating short periods of intense anaerobic effort with less-intense recovery periods.
During training you are utilising primarily glycogen & glucose for fuel. It’s following the workout that the real magic happens.
Afterburner is an informal name for Excess Post-Exercise Oxygen Consumption (EPOC). In response to high intensity exercise EPOC is accompanied by an elevated consumption of fuel.
Adipose Tissue (Body Fat) breaks down and free fatty acids are released into the blood stream fuelling the body’s increased metabolism. Scientific trials show that the EPOC effect can continue for 38 hours following a HIIT session increasing the bodies capacity to burn fat by 36%.
HIIT Rapidly Improves Exercise Capacity
Just one session per week can boost your endurance and your overall health improving blood pressure and increasing mitochondria which strengthen the heart and helps fuel your body and brain. This improved endurance will further enhance your moderate intensity workouts.
High intensity training is necessary to produce well-rounded fitness for both the enthusiast and athlete.
