Major benefits of HIIT workouts

What is Hiit? High-Intensity Interval Training or HIIT Involves short bursts of intense exercise alternated with low-intensity recovery periods.

Typically, a HIIT workout will range from 10 to 45 minutes in duration with 10 to 60 sec intervals.

HIIT can help you burn more calories! This phenomenon of burning calories after you stop exercising is called excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC).

EPOC occurs when your body burns more calories healing the wear and tear from an intense workout.

Great for your heart & Health! The increased pressure demand of HIIT causes blood vessels to actually get a workout, too!

Participants in HIIT programs have shown improved blood pressures and cardiac stroke volumes – the amount of blood pumped by the heart per beat.

Increased aerobic capacity! By improving VO2 max (the maximum amount of oxygen an individual can utilize during exercise), your body has a better ability to consume and utilize oxygen. Alternating between the efforts and rests also trains you to breathe effectively.
