Q&A: What Is Interval Training? 5 HIIT Benefits!

Q: What is interval training?

Interval Training is based off a simple principle; alternating bursts of intense activity with intervals of lighter activity.

Interval training: 

1) Burns MORE calories. That's right! Maximize those efforts, don't waste your time and energy. 

2) Improves aerobic capacity. Build a stronger cardiovascular system, live healthier! 

3) Is more efficient. Research shows 15-minute interval training routines have the same benefit as hour-long sessions (especially when jogging at the same pace on the treadmill) 

4) Burns more fat. The high-intensity of the exercise is said to kick your body into overdrive, burning fat during the repair cycle after a workout 

5) Requires no equipment and can be done anywhere!
