Chris MonPere - Beginner-Intermediate
High intensity interval training is a form of high energy non-stop exercise focused on maintaining an elevated heart rate to hit a target zone. This target zone is meant to be ideal for weight loss and muscle toning. This elevated heart rate level is accomplished by transitioning from one exercise to the next with little to no rest period. Because of this fast-paced tempo, little to no resistance is used in this class, and instead, we utilize our body weight. Be prepared for a fast paced, high energy, explosive workout with an intensive focus on the lower body and core that will leave you sweating guaranteed.
You should consult your physician or other health care professional before starting this or any other fitness program to determine if it is right for your needs. This is particularly true if you (or your family) have a history of, but not limited to, high blood pressure or heart disease, or if you have ever experienced chest pain when exercising or have experienced chest pain in the past month when not engaged in physical activity, smoke, have high cholesterol, are obese, or have a bone or joint problem that could be made worse by a change in physical activity. Do not start this fitness program if your physician or health care provider advises against it. If you experience faintness, dizziness, pain or shortness of breath at any time while exercising you should stop immediately.
