High intensity interval training, commonly referred to as HIIT, has you alternate between high and low intensity exercise(s) or between a high intensity exercise and a short period of rest. For instance, doing an all-out sprint for 15 seconds and then taking a 30 second rest would be considered interval training. HIIT is a great way to incorporate quick cardiovascular training and improve muscle strength at the same time. This class is a time efficient workout to really get you sweating in no time! It is a great way to burn calories and is different from many of the classes we offer here at Viterbo!
Don’t forget to STRETCH! Flexibility and range of motion are important as we age. This group fitness class aims to get you relaxed and recovered through a combination of stretching techniques. If you are sore or just looking for a little bit of a study break join us for a calm, cool, and collective class!”
