HIIT and stretch is half an equipment based high intensity interval class and half a stretching and flexibility class.
Hiit and Stretch offers both the high energy and low intensity. But with a refined focus on building strength, skills and coordination. The second part of the class restores your body and mind with stretches that return you to resting state. A calm after the storm.
The drills and format change each week and the equipment used varies but you can guarantee that you’ll leave of achievement and a zen like state of mind.
High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is a system of organizing cardiorespiratory training which calls for repeated bouts of short duration. High-intensity exercise intervals intermingled with periods of lower intensity intervals of active recovery. On a 1-10 scale of perceived exertion, high intensity can be considered anything over an effort level of 7. When using max heart rate (MHR) as a guide, high intensity can be considered exercising above 80% of MHR. Modes of HIIT can include outdoor activities such as running or cycling, or using equipment such as treadmills, elliptical runners, stair-climbers or stationary bikes. HIIT training calls for challenging work-rates such as sprints (whether on a bicycle or running) for short time frames lasting from thirty seconds to two minutes.
