Before we get into the science of why HIIT is effective, let’s define HIIT. HIIT involves repeating efforts of high intensity followed by a short rest periods. The combination of high intensity efforts with short rest periods allows participants to sustain their effort and get an amazing workout in a short period of time.

Burn an extra 1200 calories per week!

Completing three GT12 workouts per week helps participants burn 1200 calories or more. Multiple studies have found that compared to traditional steady state exercise, HITT burns more calories during and after workouts. High intensity exercise also results in a significant increase in the catecholamines hormones within the body.

These hormones help the body mobilize fat stores to be used as fuel. Combined, this caloric expenditure and improved hormone profile allows participants see a reduction in both superficial and visceral body fat, while maintaining muscle mass. 

Improved Health and Endurance

Pushing your body during classes improves VO2max, the body’s ability to use oxygen as energy. This improvement results in allowing you to sustain intense workouts for longer and improve your overall energy level.
