What is HIIT and why should I do it? – By Emily Smyth

The American Heart Association advises that 30 minutes of HIIT is equivalent to achieving 150 minutes of moderate intensity exercise!

HIIT, also known as high intensity interval training, is a method of exercise which involves a period of time of high intensity exercise, followed by a rest period of lower intensity exercise.

HIIT has been shown to be an effective tool in 
 – Increasing cardiovascular fitness,
 – Increasing endurance,
 – Burning abdominal fat,
 – Building muscle and
 – Reducing blood pressure.

It is a time efficient and effective form of exercise which can be carried out in as little as 20-30 minutes 2-3 times a week. As we all know, free time is often a limiting factor when it comes to achieving the recommended 150 minutes of moderate exercise per week. So why not achieve the same health goals in a reduced time?
