HIIT classes, short for high-intensity interval training, are the bread and butter of the fitness program.  Using various functional movements the instructor will run the class through a single or a few interval exercises and/or circuits.  There is less focus on lifting, more focus on lightweight/ body weight movements, still challenging and effective. The classes offer something new and fresh every day with a broad range of movements, interval settings, and games to make the workouts incredibly engaging.  This program also incorporates some of the non-contact kickboxing classes.
