Introduce HIIT into your life today!

HIIT, short for ‘high intensity interval training’ is a class that combines short bursts of energy followed by a rest period, allowing you to burn significantly more calories than moderate-intensity exercise.

Not only that, HIIT has the impressive ability to increase your metabolic rate, meaning you’ll continue to burn calories after you’ve finished exercising! Pretty neat, eh!
