What is HIIT?

I know you have seen or heard the words "HIIT" around the gym or while searching health and fitness. So you ask, what exactly is HIIT? It is a high-intensity interval training. HIIT is a training technique in which you give one hundred percent effort through quick, intense bursts of exercise, followed by short recovery periods. This type of training gets and keeps your heart rate up and burns more fat in less time. Yes, you heard that right! The reason HIIT workouts are so popular in the fitness world is because they burn more fat in less time.

I love HIIT workouts especially when you are pressed for time. If you can make 15-30 minutes available daily you can get in a great sweat!

The benefits of HIIT include:

Increases Your Metabolism Combing high intensity with interval training results in EPOC, which speeds your metabolic rate and “translates into a metabolism boost for up to 48 hours after a complete HIIT routine. This means you’ll still be burning fat even after you’ve left the gym.

Quick and Convenient Long gone are the days of not having enough time for exercise. HIIT workouts can be done anywhere: at home, in a hotel room, in a park, at a gym etc. Most workouts are 30 minutes or less.

No Equipment Necessary No dumbbells or gym? No problem! HIIT workouts generally use only your body weight, since the focus is on getting your heart rate up and keeping it there. These workouts result in optimal muscle building and muscle retention couples with fat loss and increased calorie burn.
