Research shows you can achieve great results in less time while increasing the intensity of your workout with interval training. Studies show similar results for people engaging in a 30 minute HIIT work (3 times per week) as compared to a person jogging on the treadmill for an hour.

Classes can become overly complicated using all of the latest and greatest exercise equipment. However, the simplicity and effectiveness of resistance bands has created renewed popularity for this equipment, especially as more individuals exercise at home. Bands are very convenient and portable and they can challenge any muscle group or fitness level. Enjoy a 45-minute (stay as long as you can), full body conditioning class that employs resistance bands to sculpt and tone the arms, legs, glutes and core. No muscle will go untouched!
