HIIT The Firm Bootcamps
High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) workouts build cardiovascular fitness and strength. HIIT philosophy is to work at 100% effort for a specified period of time, followed by a short recovery period. The intensity of these workouts increases the body’s oxygen requirement, raising heart rate and burning more fat and calories than steady state aerobic exercise. The strength sections build and maintain muscle while boosting endurance. Classes emphasize workouts by combining a variety of moves and equipment. Lee Epps is your instructor for these group classes:
