HIIT (high intensity interval training) sessions are great for anyone looking for a fast-paced workout that challenges the whole body.

During any HIIT class you’ll perform a variety of different exercises to work lots of muscle groups, alternating between periods of intense exercise and short sections of rest. You’ll be pushed to work close to your maximum capacity during each exercise interval, with rest periods designed to help you recover your heart rate, ready to go again.

At David Lloyd Clubs, our group exercise programme includes a number of group HIIT classes, including our signature classes BLAZE and IGN1TE, both of which are designed to work your body and enhance your fitness via short spurts of intense activity.

A HIIT class generally rotates between short intervals of intense exercise followed by short sections of rest, with you working at around 90% of your maximum capacity for each period of exercise. Expect to be out of breath and sweaty within a couple of minutes, so take a big bottle of water so you can rehydrate between sets. Go at your own pace if you’re new to exercise, and tell the instructor if you have any injuries or fitness concerns - they’ll be able to modify any moves or exercises that could be difficult for you.

In sessions such as BLAZE, our interactive screens use Myzone fitness tracking technology, which enables you to see your effort level on the screen and give you an indication of how hard you are working and how much you might have left to give. Your Myzone stats are projected onto digital screens in the form of colour-coded, easy-to-read tiles, so everybody can keep track of their progress throughout a BLAZE session. It's great to add a bit of competition into your workout, whether that's to push yourself harder or to challenge your friends and fellow members.

HIIT classes are a really efficient way to work out, and you can achieve great results in a short amount of time. By working at high intensity, you can burn the same number of calories in 30 minutes as you would in a longer session at lower intensity. HIIT classes also help to build a stronger, healthier heart, boosting your cardiovascular health and endurance, while it’ll also help reduce cholesterol, blood pressure and abdominal fat.

As with all types of group exercise classes, you’ll learn new ways to exercise whilst benefiting from the increased motivation that working out alongside others can deliver, and hopefully make plenty of friends along the way!
