Staying fit is essential for losing weight and keeping your body healthy. But with a lot of different methods, how do you choose a good fitness routine?
We build our classes on high-intensity training. Why? HIIT is recognized as the best exercise for losing weight and burning fat. It involves heightened effort for a short burst, followed by a period of active recovery.
The harder you push during intervals, the more efficient your body becomes at burning calories—both during and after your class.
