Introducing HIIT

Our newest class on the FCF menu this November: HIIT!

HIIT stands for high-intensity interval training- alternating short periods of relatively intense work times with less intense recovery time (think tabata and it’s :20 on, :10 off pattern). In HIIT you perform a short burst of high/max-intensity exercise followed by a brief rest (or low-intensity activity), repeated numerous times. With the time spent in the higher spectrum of intensity, we cannot sustain that work too long, so you can expect a doable warmup into two or three workouts, then a post-workout task.

We utilize many multi-joint movements which are ideal for maximizing the amount of work done in the shortest time. Intensity is essential for results! The more work you do in less time, or the higher the power output, the more intense the effort. By employing intervals we dictate your work, but also allow you time to rest and recover. Allowing us to control time keeps your work honest and leads you to your goals faster than usual.

By employing a constantly varied approach to training, functional movements and intensity lead to dramatic gains in fitness. We keep it fun by trying new things we wouldn’t do in our normal CrossFit classes!

Beginning in November, we will begin our new HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) Classes, replacing HellaFit on Tuesdays 12pm/5:30pm and on Thursdays 12pm/5:30pm. There is no change to HellaFit on Sundays.
