Have you seen those commercials for P90X®, Insanity®, or Crossfit?
Those training systems are based on the training techniques of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). We have developed a new class format with these principles of a HIIT workout, called Interval XT (interval cross training).
High Intensity Interval Training
HIIT is intervals of high intensity work followed by active recovery. Interval XT has cardio work (high intensity) and strength training (active recovery) intervals. The cardio exercises will incorporate plyometric moves, with a low impact option always offered. For the strength training work, you will use various weights and resistance bands and perform body-weight exercises like push-ups, planks, and tricep dips. Every muscle will be challenged by the intervals of short, intense cardio exercises followed by active recovery doing a strength training movement.
This training approach will improve your calorie burn, improve your work-to-recovery time, and increase muscle strength and cardio-respiratory function. The end result: a lean, fit, strong YOU!
