Get FIT with HIIT to look and feel great this Christmas!17 Nov
Your office Christmas party may not be far off, but there’s still time to put the work in so you’ll look and feel great on the day!
Who doesn’t love the work Christmas party? Everyone has a nice dinner, a few drinks (if they’re being good!) and it’s a great way to unwind and bond with your workmates. However, whether you’re planning on wearing a nice new dress, or you’re going full on Christmas with a bad jumper, it can be a bit of a struggle to find something that you’re happy going out in. We’re here to help though, with our range of HIIT classes!
These are absolutely perfect for those that are constantly busy, whether it’s due to work or just general commitments in life, as they’re over and done with in less than 30 minutes. HIIT, or High Intensity Interval Training, classes focus on (you guessed it) a really intense workout punctuated by short rest periods, the idea being that it kicks your metabolism into gear and has you not only burning fat during the class, but for up to 24 hours after it’s finished! Not bad for a 22 minute workout, is it?
You’ll be burning fat, improving your metabolism, sweating (so much sweating…) and loving every minute of it! If you find yourself getting bored of steady state exercises like running or swimming, you’ll be pleased to know that a HIIT workout can be more effective in a shorter space of time, and as you’re constantly moving and changing exercises, there’s no chance of you getting bored. It’s not just about looking great either – you’ll be feeling better on the inside with increased performance in your heart and lungs and a boost to your endurance too, so you can out-dance every one of your co-workers at the party!
We’ve got a pretty big range of classes too! There’s HIIT Workout or Metafit for those that want an intense, no fuss workout just using bodyweight and cardio exercises. If you prefer the gym or want something a little different, Synrgy is available at several centres. This high intensity class uses the equipment on the Synrgy frame to give you a total body workout in just 20 minutes! There’s a battle rope, punching bag, kettlebells, TRX suspension straps, cable machines and more so you know that you’ll be left aching and out of breath by the end of it. And for those that love the water, we’ve even got Aqua HIIT classes at some centres! These take the exercises you find in the regular class but introduce the resistance of the water to not only make things even tougher, but also make the exercises easier on your joints.
So, if you’re looking to squeeze in some extra workouts before the Christmas do, definitely try one of our HIIT classes!
