High-intensity interval training (HIIT) describes any workout that alternates between intense bursts of activity and fixed periods of less-intense activity or complete rest. Super-effective HIIT, such as Metafit is the ideal workout for a busy schedule. Whether you want to squeeze in a workout during your lunch break or take some quick ‘me-time’ whilst the kids attend the Roar Fitness 247 Creche; these sometimes only 15min interval training classes (done three times a week) are more effective that jogging on a treadmill for an hour. Not only do you burn more calories during a HIIT class but the effect of all that intense exertion kicks your body’s repair cycle into hyperdrive. That means you burn more fat and calories in the 24 hours after a HIIT workout! Most people aren’t used to pushing into the anaerobic zone (that lovely place where you can’t breathe and you feel like your heart is trying to jump out of your chest). But in this case, this extreme training produces extreme results so its rapidly becoming the go-to training style for people wanting head-turning results. What is MetaFit Metafit™ is a highly effective group fitness workout for those on the hunt for big results! These 30min high intensity classes work the whole body and use your body as your weights. As with all forms of training, everyone works at their own pace and unlike other group fitness classes MetaFit offers participants ‘regressions’, or simpler versions of each exercise so that you determine the intensity of your movements in accordance with what you are comfortable with. It is estimated that you can expect to burn *300cal during the class and up to 500cal during the ‘after-burn’ period. Metafit gets results because it creates a metabolic disturbance, depletes glycogen stores, works every major muscle group and increases fat burning.
