Working out is necessary for losing weight and keeping your body healthy. But with a lot of different methods, how do you pick the right workout routine?
We base our classes on high-intensity training. Why? HIIT is verified as the best exercise for losing weight and burning fat. It includes an intense effort for a brief burst, followed by a period of active recovery.
The harder you try during intervals, the more productive your body becomes at using calories—both during and after your class.
