Have you hit a fitness plateau? Looking for something new? Want to burn fat or strengthen your heart?
High Intensity Interval Training is for everyone. Building on the foundation set by our functional fitness classes, HIIT is a 45-minute cardio/resistance training class that alternates 4-minute bursts of intense exercise with 1-minute recovery periods moving through six stations. It offers a rotating, sequenced circuit to challenge your strength and cardio endurance.
Even the New York Times is talking about it being the best exercise for aging muscles.
The class sequence varies day to day, choosing from dozens of different movements--using body weight or equipment such as a pull up rig, TRX suspension trainers, rowing machines, battle ropes, plyo boxes, dumbbells, kettle bells, medicine balls, slam balls, and jump ropes.
High Intensity Interval Training is a great complement to the steady aerobic workouts that our yoga, Pilates, and barre classes offer. Students of all fitness levels and experience are encouraged to try this series. Although HIIT resembles other popular boot camp-style training, it's done with a Sunstone spin. Trained instructors encourage students to push themselves, but to listen to their bodies, always prioritizing safety and health for a great workout every time.
You'll reduce your total body fat and risk of cardiovascular disease, improve your athletic performance, fat burning efficiency, aerobic capacity, and maximal oxygen consumption, and increase your muscle, resting metabolic rate, and post-exercise oxygen consumption. But most importantly, you'll have a lot of FUN!
