Why high intensity interval training is integral to your cardiovascular health!

Classes featuring the most efficient and effective method of burning fat and spiking the metabolism feature very heavily on the Santosa Phuket Health Retreat schedule, and here are just a few VERY good reasons why it should be an integral part of your training schedule too!

1.EFFICIENT – 15 minutes of intense intervals burns many more calories than an hour jogging on a treadmill. In our time-poor, calorie-rich world, this is great news! It has been proven that 2 weeks of interval training improves cardiovascular health as much as 6 – 8 weeks of endurance training!

2.BURN FAT – The sheer exertion of HIIT kicks your body’s repair system into overdrive, meaning that the workout doesn’t end when you leave the gym! Your body will continue to burn fat and calories for at least 24 hours afterwards too!

3.HAPPY HEART – no workout will push your anaerobic health harder than HIIT. Studies show that the flow on effect into endurance is palpable, so, HIIT makes you stronger, harder, meaner, faster!

4.FIRES UP METABOLISM – Stimulating human growth hormone and activating the anti-ageing genes in your brain, HIIT keeps your body’s furnace running hot, and your cells constantly repairing.

5.CHALLENGING – It can be done anywhere, anytime, with or without equipment. Because of the shorter intervals, you only need to focus on giving it your all in each interval – which makes you work SO MUCH harder and achieve much better results.
