If you want to join one of our group classes for aerobic fitness and weight loss make sure you are ready to work. We use the HIIT method, High Intensity Interval Training. It’s not easy, but it is the most effective method we have found for aerobic exercise.
HIIT is proven to be highly effective in aerobic training. HIIT takes less time, has longer lasting benefits, and has aerobic and anaerobic benefits.
HIIT is a combination of high intensity movements for a short period of time followed by a small rest and then repeat. HIIT exercise sessions can be much shorter than normal aerobic classes.
The theory behind HIIT is that it shocks the body into a high metabolic state very quickly, then the body relaxes (a little bit) before being shocked again. This confuses the body, and starts drawing on energy reserves (fat) to fuel the intense exertion. Once this happens the body keeps burning energy for some time after the exercise, even though the session is usually shorter than standard low intensity or steady state cardio sessions.
The secret to HIIT is to move different parts of the body for a short time 30 to 60 seconds, then rest for a short time 15 to 30 seconds, then repeat. HIIT exercise sessions can be effective in as little as 10 minutes each day, and equivalent to a standard low intensity cardio start workout of 30 minutes.
AT ABC Personal Training we like to alternate between body parts, 1 exercise on legs, next on core, then upper body, then whole body, rinse and repeat, and watch the fat fall off.
