If your goal is to burn 1000 calories an hour, try group fitness. Did you know you can burn 1,000 calories in a group fitness class?

H.I.I.T. If you aren’t already familiar with HIIT workouts [High Intensity Interval Training], these can take your body from soft and doughy to well-defined muscles if you remain committed to this extremely popular fitness method. HIIT works by alternating short bursts of intense effort with low to moderate intensity recovery periods. Besides burning more calories than jogging, some studies show that FIIT might be particularly effective at breaking down fat – especially in the abdominal area! The best benefit may be the after-burn effect after your workout session has ended and your body continues to burn calories! What causes this calorie burn? It is the sparks in your heart rate that cause a lot of calorie burn, and that adds up to burning 1000 calories including the after-burn bonus.
BOOT CAMP is designed to build strength and fitness through a variety of intense group intervals similar to the HIIT workout. Get ready to do a lot of burpees, pushups, squats interspersed with running. Boot Camp workouts are often done outdoors.
