Join the Pivotal Fitness Taylors gym on Thursdays at 9:30 AM for a High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) class.
The Science Behind Interval Training:
HIIT taxes and maximizes both aerobic and anaerobic fitness while cardio addresses aerobic only.
- Aerobic respiration requires O2 to generate energy.
- Anaerobic respiration does not require O2 to generate energy.
HIIT affects muscle tissue at a cellular level, actually changing mitochondrial activity in the muscles themselves by alternating short periods of intense anaerobic exercise with less intense recovery periods. Studies show that 27 minutes of HIIT 3x/week produces the same anaerobic and aerobic improvement as 60 minutes of cardio 5x/week. These short, intense workouts provide improved athletic capacity and condition as well as improved glucose metabolism.
In addition to increased fat burning and more muscle preserved, HIIT stimulates production of your human growth hormone (HGH) by up to 450 percent during the 24 hours after you finish your workout. This is great news since HGH is not only responsible for increased caloric burn but also slows down the aging process, making you younger both inside and out!
Join us this Thursday at our Pivotal Fitness Taylors gym at 9:30 AM and start experiencing the effects of high intensity interval training for yourself!
