What is HIIT?

High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) has been really popular for a few years now, and for good reason. Not only can it be done in a small window of time and needs no specific equipment, but it also has all manner of benefits to our bodies, especially fat burning and increased metabolism.


HIIT is a training method where you go all-out in quick, intense bursts of exercise with short recovery periods in between. Generally the ratio of hard work to rest is 1:2 and can increase to 1:1 as you get fitter. HIIT gets your heart rate up and burns more fat in less time, it also increases your metabolism so you’re still burning fat even after your workout.
