Over the last couple of years the phrase ‘HIIT’ has become very popular with the likes of The Body Coach really taking the fitness world by storm with his LeanIn15 workouts. So what does it all mean?
Well what is ‘HIIT’?
‘HIIT’ stands for high intensity interval training. There is much controversy around HIIT training, as there is with all types of training. As with all types of physical activity the effectiveness is dependent on your goals.
The reasoning why it became so popular was because of the ease and effectiveness of it. ‘HIIT’ training is perfect for those client’s who lead a very busy lifestyle and have often have the reason (excuse) of “I don’t have time to workout”. You can get a great workout in just 30 minutes!
