What is HIIT?
HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) is a popular method of training which consists of short, high-intensity workouts. GAIN Fitness has branded our version of HIIT as either FIT60 or FIT45 (the number determining the duration of the class).
More than just HIIT
Our version of HIIT is slightly different to your standard HIIT class. We’ve incorporated many elements taken from CrossFit into our classes, but left out the strength/skill section usually found in a CrossFit class. This means you can focus on having a great workout and not worrying about the technical elements usually associated with weightlifting and gymnastics.
The format of our HIIT classes
Our HIIT classes (FIT60 & FIT45) will usually consist of 2-3 short workouts with allocated rest between the workouts. Whilst we can’t list all of the movements and exercises here you’ll regularly see the following programmed:
- Bodyweight movements like squats, push-ups & sit-ups
- Cardio movements like running, rowing, biking & skiiing
- Weighted movements like kettlebell swings, goblet squats & dumbbell snatches
