What is H.I.I.T. Training?

H.I.I.T. stands for High Intensity Interval Training. High-intensity interval training (HIIT) describes any workout that alternates between intense bursts of activity and fixed periods of less-intense activity. Our H.I.I.T Boot Camp consists of 3 high intensity cardio intervals on our treadmills with 3 strength training intervals in between that are performed at a less intense level. The magic of high intensity interval training is that you keep burning fat even after you leave the studio. In short, your body isn’t able to bring in enough oxygen during periods of hard work. Therefore, you accumulate a “debt” of oxygen that must be repaid post-workout in order to get back to normal. That means you burn more fat and calories in the 24 hours after a HIIT workout than you do after, say, a steady-pace run.
