What does HIIT stand for?

At KS Athletic Club, We often hear or see this question around the Internet

What does HIIT mean? What does HIIT stand for?

HIIT stands for High Intensity Interval Training. HIIT workouts are short but intense - usually about 20 to 30 minutes.

HIIT workouts are excellent because they push you, make you feel fantastic after the workout, and burn more calories than constant training.

HIIT is also a lot of fun to do in the gym, with many people continuing to go because it's so enjoyable!

What Is HIIT - Overland Park Gym

What is HIIT?

Interval training, commonly known as HIIT, is a form of exercise that alternates between high-intensity and low-intensity periods. The increased calorie expenditures throughout the day provide you with the energy you need to perform at your best.

Interval training at a high intensity (usually 20 to 30 minutes) is known as High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT).

At ks-athletic-club Gym in Overland Park, members of the gym's 21 hour a day, 6 days a week HIIT program frequently enjoy it since it is one of the most time efficient, whole-body workouts available.
