Go hard or go home. That’s pretty much the motto of HIIT—High-Intensity Interval Training. This super-efficient training technique burns calories boosts metabolism, improves your heart health, and is a seriously challenging workout within 30 minutes.
What is HIIT?
You don’t have to spend hours at the gym to get that summer six pack. In fact, you can squeeze in a fat-burning HIIT workout during your lunch break. HIIT is a form of interval training where you push yourself to the max for quick periods of intense bursts, followed by short “recovery” periods. Alternating between periods of quick, anaerobic exercise with less intense recovery periods has many benefits!
You may not feel comfortable or ready to design and carry out your own HIIT workout just yet. That’s okay! You can do a complete HIIT workout at The Edge using our treadmills and still receive all of the benefits.
We’ve designed a HIIT workout to get you started. Based on your fitness level, you can modify this to be more or less challenging. So grab your headphones, hop on a treadmill, and get ready to push yourself!
Make this HIIT workout even more intense by adding an incline to your treadmill. You can set your incline from 1.0 to 4.0 to really kick yourself into gear with this HIIT! The benefits of HIIT will continue even after you leave the gym. Not only will you feel like a rockstar for pushing yourself past your limits, you’ll also continue to burn calories long after you shut off that treadmill. Good luck!
