6 Reasons Why You Should Make HIIT Classes Part of Your Workout

HIIT classes are conventional fitness programs that involve intense physical effort that increases heart rate and breathing rate to optimal levels. This style of training can be beneficial in a number of ways, from calorie burning to inspiring a more positive attitude towards fitness. Here, we provide six reasons why you should make HIIT classes part of your regular workout routine.

HIIT, or High-Intensity Interval Training, is a training technique in which you give all-out, one hundred percent effort through quick, intense bursts of exercise, followed by short, sometimes active, recovery periods. This type of training gets and keeps your heart rate up and burns more fat in less time.

A HIIT circuit class combines the principles of HIIT with circuit training. Circuit training involves moving through a series of exercise stations, performing different exercises at each station with minimal rest in between. In a HIIT circuit class, these exercises would be performed at a high intensity. The circuit might include a variety of exercises targeting different muscle groups, such as cardio exercises (like jumping jacks or sprinting), strength exercises (like push-ups or squats), and plyometrics (explosive movements like jump squats).

The role of the personal trainer in a HIIT circuit class includes:

1. Guidance and Instruction

  • The trainer will explain and demonstrate each exercise in the circuit, ensuring clients understand the proper form and technique to reduce the risk of injury and maximize effectiveness.

2.  Motivation

  • The trainer will encourage participants throughout the workout, helping them push through the intensity and maintain energy and enthusiasm.

3. Timing and Pacing

  •  The trainer will keep track of time for each exercise and rest period, ensuring the class keeps a challenging but manageable pace.

4. Modifications and Adaptations

  • The trainer will provide modifications for exercises to accommodate different fitness levels, ensuring the class is accessible for beginners while still challenging for more advanced participants.

5. Safety Monitoring

  • The trainer will observe participants throughout the class, offering corrections on form and technique to ensure safety.

6. Feedback and Support

  • After the class, the trainer might offer feedback, answer questions, and provide support and advice on other fitness and health-related topics.

In summary, a HIIT circuit class is a dynamic and efficient workout combining high-intensity exercises with a variety of movements. The personal trainer plays a crucial role in facilitating the class, ensuring safety, effectiveness, and motivation.
