30 Jun Why HIIT?
Benefits of HIIT
The world is obsessed with High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), and you should too. Here’s our top reasons why!
1. Boost Mood and Endorphins
Endorphins are neurotransmitters that elicit a feeling of euphoria and minimise the perception of pain. Released during exercise, these chemicals boost your mood! What’s more, studies have shown that HIIT workout produce a greater flow of endorphins than steady state moderate exercise. Start your day with HIIT and walk into your day with positivity and confidence.
2. Increase Your Metabolism
Recent studies have linked HIIT workouts to higher metabolism rate after training. A higher rate of metabolism indicates a higher rate of energy consumption throughout the day, meaning that more fat can be burned throughout the day (just what we need inn winter!). When compared to moderate intensity exercises, HIIT training maintains a much higher metabolism rate post workout meaning you burn throughout the day.
3. Time Efficient
HIIT is an efficient training style that allows the busiest of people to get their workouts done in a very short duration of time. Would you rather spend 1.5 hours in the gym for a long and dreadful workout or get your workouts done quickly and move on with your day? If you are tired of your long training sessions or can never seem to find time for the gym, HIIT training might just be for you!
All Bodhi Rides are HIIT. So come RIDE and experience these three fab benefits!
t higher intensity, but for shorter periods. We’ve designed our class structure on the knowledge that HIIT, or high-intensity interval training, is a training technique in which you give all-out, one hundred percent effort through quick, intense bursts of exercise, followed by short, sometimes active, recovery periods. This type of training gets and keeps your heart rate up and burns more fat in less time.
We use HIIT, meaning you will burn between 400 and 600 calories per RIDE class.
Because we offer full-body workouts, you will tone muscles and shred fat. Your metabolism will increase and thanks to the after-burn effect, you’ll keep burning fat even when you’re in the car on your way home after a class.
