What is HIIT?

HIIT, otherwise known as High Intensity Interval Training, is a workout method that focuses on 45 seconds of fast paced, intense exercise, typically followed by 15 seconds of rest. Interval training can be incorporated into almost any workout (running, lifting, squatting, etc.), and usually varies from 30 minutes to an hour, burning little as 500 calories and up to 1000 (depending on BMI and other factors).


Why We Love HIIT

1. HIIT is a workout for everyone: Unlike some workout methods, HIIT welcomes all fitness levels. With the ability to modify almost every movement in its workout, HIIT is perfect for anyone looking to lose weight, get in shape, tone their bodies, or simply get a killer workout!


2. HIIT switches it up: Rather than simply jogging on a treadmill for 30 minutes, HIIT gives you an opportunity to spice up your exercise routine. Break up your light jog with some burpees, a sprint, or a plank! Interval training is a fun way to keep you stimulated, and rids you of the boredom usually associated with your everyday workout routine.


3. HIIT is challenging: Pushing yourself as hard as you can for 45 seconds at a time can be extremely tough and trying, but persevering through can result in achieving your goals and seeing fast results. Overall, HIIT workouts are the perfect way to #ReinVENTyourself
